Today is a bit a special day. I am really excited to introduce a new green beauty online shop called Corpo Natura. Founded by Anouk Domingez, it recently launched and I am even more happy because it is based in The Netherlands...and last but not least, it is beautifully done! It retails some fabulous and pretty unique beauty brands such as Suti, John Master Organics, Alima Pure, Prtty Peaushun, Kahina (...and more to come!).
Anouk has kindly agreed to answer to a few questions.
Could you tell me what inspired you to create Corpo Natura?
My interest in natural and organic cosmetics started out of a health concern. Some years ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease and adrenal fatigue. Prior to that, I wasn’t even aware of the importance of using natural cosmetics for our overall health. After a lot of research in the field, I jumped into a new, more vibrant and fulfilling lifestyle.
How do you stand out from other beauty retailers?
There are great retailers in the green beauty industry out there! But I prefer not to compare myself. As a small company we like to connect in a different way with people and clients, and we offer a complete personalized and flexible service putting attention to every little detail with a fresh and inviting image. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a company with that personal touch in The Netherlands.
How did/do select your beauty brands?
Most of our brands have renowned organic certification or organic ingredients. If they don’t, they must score maximum 3 on the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Skin Cosmetic Database. Therefore, they must be produced with the purest ingredients available. We also value companies which are committed to social causes or the environment in one way or another.
Last thought to share?
What we put in our skin is as important as what we eat. I am concerned about the Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in many conventional brands, but our health worth much more than the extra euros we could spend buying organic cosmetics, and sometimes they are even cheaper than some high-end conventional brands. We really do not need a lot and every single jar can last for many months. My philosophy is buy less, choose wisely.
Thank you Anouk for taking part in my little interview. I have to say that I love your philosophy and totally agree with it!
