Violet is committed to formulating the purest therapies for your skin.
In 2014, I began researching natural remedies to help relieve my husband and son’s eczema. Slathering themselves in steroid creams filled with toxic chemicals was not an option. Guided by time-honored African traditions and centuries-old ingredients like Shea butter, also known as Karité, nutrient-rich oils, and essential oils, I handcrafted my first body butter.
After months of using this whipped body butter on my immediate family to test its efficacy, we began to notice the positive changes in our skin’s appearance. The real proof came when my physician raved about my skin’s smoothness and healthy glow. She encouraged me to share my body butter with others. I began to test my body butter on friends and extended family. Their responses were overwhelmingly positive. They, too, were pleased with their supple, smooth, glowing skin.
This was the moment that changed my life. I wanted to formulate the purest therapies for healthy, glowing skin. I also thought about how women like to layer their scents and products. It spoke to a sensory experience that needed to be brought full circle. I began researching and meticulously testing recipes for natural body wash, body scrubs, body oils, and bath salts. I knew this journey was going to be a labor of love. I was determined to create a skincare line that people would be passionate about. It was out of this passion and desire that Violet was born.
Purple is my favorite color and it inspires creativity. The name, Violet, which means purple in French, was apropos for my creative endeavor. After several trips to France, I fell in love with the style of Paris, the beauty of Nice, and the historic center of Montpellier. I learned the language and embraced the culture. I admired how the women radiated an effortless beauty that was natural and pure. French women believe that natural beauty is achieved by taking care of their skin with a consistent skincare regimen. I wanted Violet to help others implement a healthy skincare regimen so they, too, may hold the magic and mystery of effortless beauty.
I hope that every time you use one of our products, you experience the magic and awaken your nirvana.
