Evelia Aguirre Torres: Educating about the realities of the skin care industry and advocating for natural products.
I’m so excited for this next interview with Evelia owner of De Mi Tierra. She Spilled ALL. THE. TEA. when it comes to the cosmetic industry. Evelia has been in the industry for over 15 years, and when she was pregnant she decided to take a stand and develop products that she could trust and knew that would be nourishing to her body.
About De Mi Tierra:
"Her company, De Mi Tierra is Spanish for “From My Earth”, because she believes that skin, bath and beauty products should be as nature intended them to be...100% Natural, Simple and Organic. All of their products are handcrafted in small batches with natural earth made ingredients, organic, unrefined plant oils, butters, and clays and absolutely no animal derived ingredients. Only organic therapeutic grade essential oils are infused in all of our products each benefiting the mind, body and spirit. They hope to transform your home and skin…one small batch at a time!"
She encourages us to be more thoughtful about what we put on our bodies, and how we can look back to our ancestors and their connection to the earth when it came to taking care of their bodies. I’m so glad to have had this conversation in person especially because we got to talk through her actual products there at the end.
