Can you give us a quick run-down on what W3LL PEOPLE is all
about and how it all began?
Meet W3LL PEOPLE (pronounced well people), a supernatural makeup brand created by an uncompromising trio: Elite Make-up Artist Shirley Pinkson (myself), Cosmetic Dermatologist Renee Snyder MD, and Visionary James Walker. W3LL PEOPLE founders understand the makeup we put on our skin goes into our body. This simple fact inspires us to create innovative cosmetics using extraordinary quality, integrity and purity to achieve beautiful aesthetic results outside and healthy results inside. This modern approach to beauty is powered by W3LL PEOPLE's "3" core principles: advanced performance, premium 100% natural/organic ingredients, and sustainability (not to mention a good dose of mojo).
Why was it so important to you that W3LL PEOPLE'S products be all-natural?
Actively avoiding products with harsh artificial chemicals provide both positive aesthetic and health benefits. Remember, our skin is our largest organ. We absorb 80% of what we put on it. That's a big deal! When we take a more mindful approach regarding cosmetics we can avoid troublesome chemicals that potentially harm us, such as parabens, propylene glycol and phthalates.
This kind of more mindful choice feels much more powerful, healthy and beautiful. It's kind of like how you feel after a delicious meal from your favorite farm to table restaurant using rich, local ingredients...instead of that fast food drive thru.
We love your mantra of 'Hippie made, diva approved' can tell us this how came about and what it means?
W3LL PEOPLE is designed specifically for the modern, savvy woman who demands authenticity, simplicity, and pure quality- but not willing to compromise on convenience and performance.
What is unique about W3LL PEOPLE?
I can say that W3LL PEOPLE has made an active and conscious choice to do more than create naturally fierce product. W3LL PEOPLE offers an "eco-lux" experience driven by the integration of optimal product performance, bioavailable product ingredients and sustainable business practices.
From our green certified Studio in Austin, Texas built from sustainable materials, such as recycled denim, to its mindfully operated Santa Fe headquarters, our mission is to bring a fresh, safe focus to beauty by selling products with proven, medical-grade nutrients that replenish the skin without harming the planet.
Thanks to our proprietary technology, we've harnessed the power of our superstar ingredient: organic Aloe Vera. Dubbed "the plant of immortality" by the ancient Egyptians, this therapeutic botanical is proven to help sooth, nourish and moisturise the skin.
We infuse this natural wonder into practically everything we make. Think of it as a much needed antidote to the environmental damage we all face daily.
