HELEKA's roots began decades ago, during my early teenage years, when I began smuggling groceries out of my mother’s kitchen to make homemade beauty products such as facial masques, deep conditioning hair treatments, and other natural indulgences. Even at a young age, I knew the best body care begins with nature. Once I went to college, my fascination with personal care products grew as I studied esthetics and began to understand the chemistry behind their formulas.
Today I apply the concepts I learned in college to develop products which contain luxurious and nutrient-rich ingredients from around the world. I carefully select suppliers which only source high quality, sustainably harvested, and ethically traded products. I also research my vendors to ensure none of the ingredients used in my products are ever tested on animals.
Outside of these practical considerations, my products are also inspired by my love of flowers and gardens.
I believe that peace truly grows in the garden.
I love all aspects of a garden - the feeling of the damp earth in the morning, the beauty of greenery illuminated by dazzling sunlight, and the scent of flowers releasing their intoxicating fragrance into the air. I love the movement of the gardens as Mother Nature choreographs a perfectly synchronized ballet of blossoms swaying in the gentle breeze.
I believe that wandering along a garden path can recharge your mind and your soul.
I believe that scent is the most evocative of the senses. A scent reminds you of the most intimate and treasured memories of your life.
I create body care products which will take you along your own garden path. I have countless childhood memories of picking Lily of the Valley and Violets, watching my mom tend her garden while I played nearby. These scents inspire different memories for everyone – which garden do they bring you back to?
My body care collection helps women who want to feel confident and attractive, but who also want to make intelligent choices which satisfy their desires for a vibrant, healthy, and cruelty-free lifestyle.
I handcraft my products in micro-batches using some of the finest botanicals,
plant-based oils, and artfully crafted scents. By making smaller batches, I am able to give my full attention to quality and detail, unlike giant retailers who produce mass quantities. When you choose HELEKA, you have the comfort and peace of mind knowing that each ingredient is specifically chosen for its quality and skincare benefits.
I believe what is left out of my products is equally as important as what I put into them. Here at HELEKA, you will not find any phthalates, parabens, or petroleums which can adversely affect your health, cause irritation, and speed up the effects of aging. When you choose products without these harmful ingredients, you can be confident in the choices you make for your body care without compromising your health.
