Conceiving an idea or product is one thing, bringing it to market is an entirely different ball game.
Research and development is crucial and often happens in the humblest of settings. A garage like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, or in the case of Chelsea Romero and Jacob Zamarippa, a tiny 6×8 kitchen in Chelsea’s parents’ home.
Chelsea and Jacob grew tired of the unhealthy skincare products they were seeing on store shelves and decided they’d set out to spread the “naked” truth about modern skin care. Through a great deal of experimentation finding the finest all natural skincare remedies, Nearly Naked Products was born.
The skincare company sources ingredients from farmers markets and sustainable suppliers. All products are made in very small batches to ensure quality and freshness.
I sampled a selection of Nearly Naked Products and highly recommend the following.
Activated Charcoal Soap, $5.99
Activated charcoal – boasts beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers. Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne.
Rose Facial Clay, $15.99
Pink kaolin clay – a skillfully balanced blend of the White and Red kaolin. It is rich in aluminum oxide. This clay is ideal for normal skin types due to its unique balance of properties. Red Kaolin clay provides a profound absorption of toxins and clogged oil from the skin while the mild White clay combats skin irritation and dryness.
