My name is Shannon Buck, and I love all things natural, organic, and eco-friendly. If our skin is our largest organ, we better be picky about what we slather and lather it with. Just like I enjoy being able to read the ingredients in my food quickly, I am quite the stickler about what goes into my skincare and beauty products. Nowadays, it is simple to find plant-based beauty and skincare products that offer attractive benefits without harmful ingredients and dreadful preservatives. Plant-based natural products work and smell better than the synthetic and chemical-laden products that many people use.

I am happy to announce that my first book, 200 Tips, Techniques, and Recipes for Natural Beauty, is available for purchase!!!
