In 2015, Sarah was diagnosed with Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer, at 36 years old and
32weeks pregnant. When something like this happens it turns your world upside down. During this time she and her sister Leah, who is an oncology nurse, started diving into the food they ate and the products they put on their bodies. At the end of the day our skin is our largest organ, and everything we put onto our bodies get absorbed into our blood stream and organs so doing the research, understanding the ingredients we consume our bodies with daily is something Leah and Sarah feel very passionately about.
While going through chemo, Sarah lost all of her hair! When this happened, she felt like she lost something that made her feel beautiful and confident. Instead of spending this time feeling bad for herself, she found a bunch of beautiful scarves and some great colored lipsticks --- she got her groove, confidence and saltiness back!
And here is where the idea of SaltyGirl Beauty was born...
Sarah and Leah discussed how they wish there was a beauty brand that focused on organic, nourishing ingredients but also stood for something bigger than beauty! Our goal is when women wear our beauty line they feel Beautiful, Confident and a little Badass!!!
