Play Pretty Beauty began out of a need to to relieve eczema.
I’ve had it since I was a child. My dry patches itched and would leave dark marks on my skin. Like most people with eczema, I treated it with prescriptions and over the counter cortisones. It wasn’t until my young son developed eczema that I really started taking a hard look at what we were putting on our bodies. I started using butters and oils separately on our skin, but they were either to cumbersome to use, too oily or the moisture wouldn't last. Once I started blending the butters and oils together, along with botanicals to relieve itchiness and deliver lasting moisture, I noticed our skin improved tremendously. With eczema and extremely dry skin, moisture that lasts is key. To see how the products would fare in the marketplace, I started taking them to local farmer’s markets to get feedback. I frequently sold out. Customers loved the combination of a natural product that delivered lasting moisture but didn't leave a greasy mess on their clothes and had unique, but not overpowering fragrances.
As a television news anchor, I was used to doing research and gathering information. I turned those skills inward to create a natural butter blend that is creamy, effective and nourishing not just for eczema, but for anyone who suffers from dry, chapped skin.
While making the butters, I fell in love with creating natural, beneficial skincare. Our products range from face to body care and all keep skin sensitivity top of mind while addressing blemishes, dark spots, acne and sun damage.
Play Pretty makes beauty skin deep. Our products contain no sulfates, parabens, mineral or petroleum oils, harsh detergents, drying SD alcohol, phthalates or lanolin. And we test on people, not animals. It is truly my passion to Play Pretty, naturally.
