First off, I’d like to start by introducing myself and my business partner Avalon. My name is Sanja and I am one of the co founders of Vossity. I am a mom to two beautiful little girls and recently, I got married! I have always been interested in makeup and skincare and when I became a mom my interests did not change, but I did start getting curious about the quality of the products I was using. I started to notice that the majority of the products I was putting on my skin, contained a very large amount of chemicals that were toxic, and this went beyond just sulhphates and parabens. I also noticed that my options were very limited when it came to purchasing all the products I needed from one place. I either had to hunt around the city for small boutiques that carried what I needed, order from overseas, and sometimes both. In the meantime, a friend of mine was experiencing similar challenges.
Avalon is an accountant by day but an entrepreneur at heart. Despite her technical skills it’s the creating process that inspires her. Avalon’s desire to constantly expand her knowledge has driven her back to school and she is now working towards her MBA.Her and I met through our husbands. Actually, we both met our individual husbands because of the other one. So I guess you could say our friendship and business partnership was kind of inevitable. Avalon has always been ambitious and determined and the idea for Vossity had been brewing in her head for some time. At the beginning of this year however, she decided that she was finally going to do it. I feel personally honoured that the first person she thought of to partner with, was me. She knew her strengths and mine would mesh well together and I guess you could say that she is the peanut butter to my jelly.
We had countless meetings discussing our ideas for Vossity and we finally decided that it was time. We had both struggled with our skin and felt that we were running out of options to help fix it. We started doing our research and coming up with a list of chemicals and ingredients we were determined to avoid using in our daily routines. -Oh,and ya, Avalon has graciously shared this information with you guys in our “Ditch These Ingredients” list to help you make better and healthier choices!
We are so happy to be bringing you amazing brands with quality products that we know you’ll love (we definitely do). Not only are the brands we’re carrying organic and vegan, they’re gorgeous! I personally love all these products and I am delighted and proud to share them with you.
I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know us a bit better and I can’t wait to share more with you through our blog AND vlog. You’ll be hearing (or reading) mostly from me, but don’t worry, I’ll give you guys a break from time to time to hear from Avalon too!
And remember, life is beautiful and so are you! Live vivaciously you gorgeous Vossity babes!
