Why Terra Tonics
Terra Tonics is not just about skincare for me. It's about choosing to do better, feel better, and live better, creating long-term skin health for people whilst protecting our planet.
The origins of Terra Tonics trace back to 2011, perhaps even as far back as my childhood. It was around 2011 that caring for my skin became very important. I had just begun working as a model, and over the next few years, with the continuous use of makeup, skin, and hair care products, I saw a significant change in my skin and well-being.
My skin became dehydrated, congested and not as vibrant. Like many people having trouble with their skin, I began paying very close attention to my skincare routine, trying everything - high-end brands, 5 to 8 step skincare, moisturises, toners, repair nighttime treatments! If you've heard of it, I've tried it. It cost me a lot of time and money, yet all this skincare only made things worse.After much trial and error, it dawned on me that I'd overlooked the most important factor, the ingredients!
So began the research phase, and it was here that I was shocked to find out what was really in the skincare and makeup I'd been using. No wonder my skin changed drastically with all the chemicals and alcohol it had to deal with.
After many conversations with family, searching online, and endless articles, I was led back to my childhood and teachings from my father and our heritage. My life had gone full circle. My father owned an Ayurvedic clinic in the UK, and my mum was an aromatherapist. Instead of chemicals, essential oils, herbs, and botanicals were our first aid kit and pharmacy. I'd grown up with his stuff, yet I'd somehow forgotten it in my early adult life.
My parents taught me the importance of connecting with the natural world and plants incredible healing and medicinal power. Finding botanical solutions to modern problems was in my blood.
Years of researching and learning it became clear to me that most skincare is founded on marketing and not results. Made in identical labs with the same synthetic ingredients. Such products are unsustainable, and can contain harmful ingredients not only to your skin but also to our planet, and many involve taking the lives of other sentient beings. Using plastic and all overpackaged.
Terra Tonics is a new way of doing skincare. Only sourced from nature and aligned with our biology, all while protecting Mother Nature with every choice we make. I don't talk about or make anything that I don't use or live by myself; Terra Tonics is a vegan skincare company owned and run by a vegan. It reflects my values and a journey to a better future for all beings on this miraculous planet.It's also simply the best skincare you'll find.
