Episode 41. What Goes on Your Skin Goes Into Your Body

This experience led Hillary to find her purpose, educating people on the impacts of toxins in skincare and providing superior skincare products without sacrificing efficacy. Hillary shares with Alex the moment she connected that what goes on your skin goes into your body and about her eight years studying botanicals and their healing powers that eventually led to the launch of her skincare company True Botanicals. True Botanics has banned 5,000 beauty ingredients in their products, compared to 11 banned by the U.S. and 1,328 banned by Europe.

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her son and two rescue dogs.
