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, were unsightly and like most people with eczema, I treated it with prescriptions and over the counter remedies. Over time, my skin grew irritated, and the “solutions” proved to be short term. But 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.
As a television news anchor and reporter, I was used to doing research and gathering information to present a finished piece. I turned those skills inward to find a natural solution for eczema. It turned out to be one of the longest pieces I’d ever worked on.
For two years, I blended countless batches of butters and oils, looking for that perfect mix of good and good for you. I would not only have my friends and family try the butters, but I’d also take them to local farmer’s markets to gauge reaction and get feedback. I quickly learned that customers were looking for that sweet spot of a natural product that delivered moisture, had unique fragrances, and didn’t leave a greasy mess on their clothes.
Finally, after countless batches of homemade butter and 'test audiences' I was ready to present my finished piece; a blend that helped relieve itchiness, blotchy patches and deeply moisturized but you could still get dressed right after applying. Sweet! While there is no cure for eczema, these butters keep it under control without harsh steroids or chemicals.
While making the butters, I fell in love with creating natural, beneficial skincare. Our products keep skin sensitivity in 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. I hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. It’s our passion to Play Pretty, naturally.
