Founded by Cynthia Besteman, Violets Are Blue is the essential skin care product that is both natural and safe for the body and the environment. Ms. Besteman was unfortunate to receive a devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. After learning about the way our bodies can manifest problems as a result of our lifestyles and the products we use, Cynthia cleared her household of any possible pollutants and switched to a purely organic lifestyle. In 2013 she created Violets are Blue, a company that operates under the philosophy that skincare does not have to be complicated and offers a consciously-produced line made of naturally-derived ingredients.

Violets Are Blue products are made with no chemicals or fragrances. The skincare line uses premium ingredients, such as rich butter-like Shea and Kokum, nourishing and essential oils – Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Argan, Rosehip Oil, Carrot Seed, Lavender, Avocado, Sesame and more.

Violets Are Blue Signature Line skin care

They carry many product choices; from Facial Scrub with sweet almond and oatmeal to Lip Balm with I use regularly; Facial Serum, Scar Repair, and Facial Cleanser, just to name a few. Also, all their Tea Tree and Lemongrass deodorants are aluminum-free, naturally scented, and meticulously formulated to achieve high effectiveness. The line focuses on mature/aging skin and helps retain the youthful glow using only the best natural ingredients.

As a breast cancer survivor myself, I had the opportunity to try some of Violets are Blue products, and I am more than a thrill to have them be a part of my life. With so many different choices in today’s market, it is hard to choose the right one; however, with Violets are Blue, you are sure to enjoy a lifetime of healthy and exceptional beauty.
