The Practical Herbalist team’s interview with Christina Sanchez – cosmetologist, herbalist, and founder of Every Leaf Speaks prompted them to create more skin care products.

So much has changed in world of skin products over the last few decades. The range of natural and cruelty-free products is expanding as the general public refines their standards for what is attractive and healthy both personally and globally.
