My decision to create a community-minded skincare company came from my desire to provide spa services for every budget. While practicing holistic esthetics for 16 years, I have found that self-care is essential for our fast-paced, constantly-connected society.
The seeds for my life long respect for nature and my the scientific perspective was planted by my hippy, southern, farm-girl-turned-nurse momma. Her influence was integral in my choice to study pre-med biology and ethnobotany. Currently I am studying nutrition/dietetics which influences my nutrition-based skincare and body-care formulations.
The completion of an Urban Farming internship with City Slicker Farms in 2012 began a chapter for me that is the foundation for Banks of Commune's skincare philosophy.
Respect for all and love of community is the root of what inspires the Banks of Commune's existence.
