The inspiration behind Thrive Natural Care was born and grown from two seeds.
The first “seed” was my need for better skincare. I was born with sensitive skin and (like many others) live an active life often filled with stress. What I wanted (but couldn’t find) was healthy, natural, affordable skincare that worked better than chemically-laden, conventional skincare, without the frequent irritation or side-effects.
The second "seed" was my belief that the world needed a better business model. One afternoon, after nearly a decade leading corporate and environmental sustainability teams, I stood in one of the biggest manufacturing plants in America. I watched millions of industrially-farmed, plastic-packaged consumer products zip off the lines and ship to stores. I considered the negative impacts, multiplied by the 213 million businesses around the world. We needed to leave our kids and grandkids a better legacy.
Soon after, during a family trip to Costa Rica, the vision of a regenerative skincare business came to life in my head. Unique superplants, chosen for their superior skincare benefits and restorative role in local ecosystems. Planted and grown in a special way–regenerative farming–that supercharged their skin benefits, while restoring health to degraded lands, and improving the livelihood of rural farmers. That was a business model I could get behind.
My team and I believe that regenerative is the future of skincare–and of business. And that, one day, you’ll be able to walk into your favorite store, where Thrive and every other product on the shelves will be made by a company whose regenerative impact leaves you and our planet better than we found it. Hope you love your Thrive as much as I do.
