I recently had the opportunity to interview Indie Lee about her amazing line of all natural skin and hair care products. Indie is so passionate and dedicated to raising awareness and providing products that are safe. The best thing about the Indie Lee line is that her products are not only green, but luxurious, pampering and affordable. Take a minute to read my interview with Indie, and learn more about the inspirational story behind her line.
After being diagnosed with a potentially fatal brain tumor, Indie discovered that her tumor was most likely caused by exposure to environmental toxins. On Earth Day of 2009, Indie awoke from brain surgery, to learn that her tumor had successfully been removed. Indie realized that she had to be her own advocate and take responsibility for what she exposed her body to… and from that, Indie Lee began developing her very own safe, all natural, indulgent line of skin and hair care products.
Many of us are unaware that the FDA’s regulations are pretty much non-existent when it comes to the ingredients that go into our cosmetic and personal care products. In fact, most ingredients do not even undergo safety testing. It’s easy to just assume that the government wouldn’t allow an unsafe product to be sold to us, but they do. Their excuse is that the toxic/ harmful ingredients are in such small amounts that they can’t harm us… but what about when those chemicals are used on a daily basis, and along with other products? I mean who really uses just one personal care product a day? Deodorants, soaps, shampoo/ conditioners, cosmetics and even toothpastes all contain chemicals linked to tumors, cancers and many other serious health conditions. Some of those ingredients are known carcinogens, neurological toxins, respiratory and immune toxins; yet the FDA still allows for them to be put into our products.
Switching out your daily products like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, and etcetera, for natural ones, tremendously reduces your exposure to these chemicals.
Indie Lee has so many amazing products in her line, that I wasn’t sure which to start with when I was interviewing her! So, I asked her to pick her personal favorites, and talk a little bit about them…
Body Balm – Perfect for healing super dry, or irritated skin. Ideal for areas prone to extra dryness such as hands, feet, knees and elbows!
Carrot French Clay Cleansing Bar – Indie says that this bar alone changed her skin. When she was experiencing some hormonal acne, this toning and revitalizing cleansing bar completely refreshed her skin! She says she never travels without it!
Squalane Facial Oil– This naturally occurring oil promotes elasticity in the skin, helps boost cell regeneration and oxidation, and leaves you with a glowing complexion that looks and feels radiant. Indie mixes the Squalane Oil with a teeny bit of her Anti-Aging Serum, for youthful and healthy skin!
Indie has a ton of other items in her line such as gentle baby care products, blemish/ acne treatments, luxurious hair care products, and much more! I am so excited to try her products and write some reviews! I know I am going to fall in love with any and everything I try, and I can’t wait to tell all of my clients about this line!
