"Our purposes are manifested when our desires become so big that we can no longer sit idly by."
My purpose did not come about easily—or happily, for that matter. I lost my mother to an environmental cancer and consequently had to deal with that loss. During her treatment, the only thing we found to show progress (BOTANICAL MEDICINE) was the only thing we were unable to continue to pursue, for many reasons. After she passed, I started blaming myself for not acting soon enough. What eventually helped me to transition that blame was gaining an understanding, a consciousness, of how these opposing industries (med, pharma, products) unknowingly worked against our favor. NONE of them supported the only thing giving us hope. Once I realized the enormous gaps that existed, it wasn't enough for me to just know...I had to DO something. That was my moment of clarity, an awareness that our purposes are manifested when our desires become so big that we can no longer sit idly by.
In skincare, the root cause is what builds and protects our skin's natural defense mechanism, the microbiome. So my approach to "fixing the industry" had to start there. Make products that balance the microbiome and unlock our bodies potential for healthy, beautiful skin
I believe our bodies...nature...the universe...all tell us stories everyday if we just listen. We already know how to solve the problems—the solutions are already there—we just need to tap into our consciousness to recognize them. And that, my dear friends, is the promise of CONCUR.
When I started this mission, I captured my thoughts in a blog to always remind myself of the greater task at hand: to ensure our loved ones are with us longer. As our brand may ebb and flow, the story and drive behind CONCUR will never change. Read more, from the very beginning.
