The Sweetsation Therapy Story
Being way over 30 and just entering motherhood I was concerned with aging and other skin issues associated with pregnancy, just like any other woman. So one day, I lathered my usual age preventing night cream on my face before going to bed. At that point I believe I was 3 months along. It was one of those high end, smell good creams that promise to do all the miracles in the world to your face…… Next morning I received an email that notifies me every week what to look for and what to expect as your pregnancy progresses. It was in that fateful email I found out about all the harmful ingredients that are present in skin care products and should not be used during pregnancy and may harm the fetus inside you; to the point of deformities and brain damage. In a state of panic I rushed to the bathroom and frantically started reading all the labels on all my “pregnancy” creams and lotions that I was religiously putting on myself daily. Needless to say but all of them contained a “no-no” ingredient(s) that I just read about. Including a major ‘no-no’ like Retinol and Fragrances, aka phthalates.
Working in the cosmetic industry for 20 years, for a few major brands, I couldn’t figure out WHY in the world it never crossed my mind before. At that point I thought, “Oh my God, I’ve harmed my baby……”. I suppose, I don’t have to mention that a state of panic was following me everywhere till the end of my pregnancy. That very morning I decided to put all my knowledge and experience to work and create my own skin care company that would design and manufacture everything a woman would need, whether pregnant or not, to take care of her skin, being 20+ or 30+ or even 40+, applied using a daily regimen, and therefore protecting her health and well-being.
