When Lane Edwards was pregnant with her first child, she developed a sensitivity to the perfumes and beauty products she loved. A heightened sense of smell rendered their chemical components unbearable, so she began concocting natural alternatives for herself and her growing family.
After giving birth to her second child, Edwards decided to share her homemade recipes with a wider audience. Seeing the need for natural, non-toxic, cruelty-free beauty products, the self-taught perfumer and skin care formulator launched a small wellness collection from her basement.
Six years later, Pura Botanicals has evolved into an extensive skin care line with a global audience.
“Skin care really makes a difference,” Edwards says. “When a woman feels confident about her skin it’s so powerful. To be part of that woman’s daily routine and know we’re having a positive effect every single day is so rewarding.”
