About Babo Botanicals
My father, a beekeeper, shared his skill and love for bees early on. My passion for beekeeping and sustainable agriculture only strengthened as I got older, and after graduating from Harvard, I joined the Peace Corps, where I had the opportunity to share my knowledge of beekeeping with women in rural Paraguay as a means of financial and nutritional support for their families. Besides teaching families how to harvest and sell their delicious product, I also explained the value of nutrition. I taught them how to grow new kinds of vegetables in their own garden patches. The young women learned to cook recipes incorporating vegetables they had never tasted before like zucchini and spinach, rich in iron and vitamins. Educating children and teenagers about nutrition linked to the satisfaction of gardening became my prime focus, and this passion has continued to grow.
On returning to the US, I embarked on a career as a hair and skincare product developer for brands including L’Oreal, LVMH, Avon, and Redken. When I got pregnant with my first child, I went in search of a line of products that both stood up to my professional standards and felt safe and natural enough for my new baby. I found that most baby and children’s products did not address particular hair and skin problems like adult products do. Also, more children today have allergies so I wanted to create a line formulated with very clean, natural ingredients. My entrepreneurial spirit took over, and Babo Botanicals began.
