I created products for myself due to a breast cancer diagnosis in 2005 right after giving birth to my daughter. I am a young survivor who due to treatment had major hair and skin/scarring issues. I did research and discovered that there weren't 100% natural products out there that included all of the ingredients I needed to get my pretty hair and skin back. I received some products from my friend but was scared to use them because of chemicals and known carcinogens. That's when I decided to help myself. After much trial and error, I made my own leave-in hair and scalp revival serum and decollete and underarm massage cream for scarring and skin renewal. In early 2007 my husband mentioned that my hair and skin were looking really good and thought the products might be able to help other people. He was right. I am confident my products can help others so I started my own company Pristine Recovery, Inc. I have collaborated with a team of professional chemists to create effective 100% natural, carcinogen free solutions for people like me who are looking in a new and healthy direction.
My goal was to make these products look as special on the outside as they are on the inside, which is my hope for the consumer who chooses to buy them. These products not only provide an elegant solution, but support charity as well -- Pristine Recovery will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Young Survival Coalition and the Cancer Prevention Coalition.
