Colombian born Beauty Innovator, Tata Harper walks in a room and stuns with her presence. She is a breath of fresh air. Beautiful blonde hair and perfect dewy skin, greets us with a warm smile and begins her beauty workshop.
For over 5 years, she searched high and low for the perfect ingredients for her natural skincare line. An idea drawn up after her father was treated for cancer and the entire family switched to an organic, non GMO diet and lifestyle. She thought to herself, “If what we ingest matters, why couldn’t we extend to what goes on our skin?” You see, Tata is an Industrial Engineer by trade, but has been invested in her skincare since she was very young, as it is common in Latin America, I would know. My mother, too, taught me at a very young age, about the importance of a good skincare regimen. I’d also watch my aunts carefully apply their moisturizers, in a perfected technique that I now use (you’ll watch in the video above), after realizing that they have barely aged in the last 25 years.
So, Tata took her idea and ran with it. She set off to create a skincare line that was 100% natural, organic and effective. She consulted with experts all over the world, gathering insights as to what is necessary to keep her line chemical free. The Tata Harper motto is “Beauty without compromise”. She was able to develop an amazing natural skincare and anti aging product that harnesses the internal components of all natural ingredients in her farm straight to the lab in Vermont. This is where her background as an Industrial Engineer comes into play. She runs the lab herself in order to cut out the middle man and ensure that the quality of the product is completely her vision. The company has an Open Lab policy and Traceability Program, which means that we as consumers are privy to the entire process and know where all the ingredients come from. This gives us so much confidence in the product that we would gladly pay a higher price for the highest quality product.
During the workshop, she taught us the importance of skincare that is natural, what each ingredient does for our skin and how to use the products. We all left with beautiful dewy skin and a wake up call that natural ingredients do matter. We had a chance to meet with her and chat, as well. So, Tata shared her Top 10 Beauty Trends of 2016!
