R. Miller


The attention to detail is amazing & I learned so much with my project. They really helped me broaden my target market.  They always make me feel like I'm part of my product's journey, part of their family.

R. Thompson

Brand Owner

My clients adore these products. The quality is unsurpassed. A company that goes above and beyond & Nancy is so down-to-earth. She truly 'gets' the business side of products, which makes it so much easier, knowing she speaks a language that I can understand.

M. Lewis

Franchise Owner

Compassionate. Accommodating. Wonderful Communication & Exceptional Quality. Not many companies give you access to who formulates and designs products. Usually, you deal with a sales person. Not here. I'm so grateful I chose to expand with this company.

C. Dubois

Medical Esthetician & Salon Owner

Love the diverse product library & the ability for rapid product development cycles. They can communicate with marketers or sales professionals and 'get' our needs. Great job.

In-House Brand

This is one of our newest brands. The pre-launch or soft launch has been in commerce for some time now. Yet, our official launch will be in late September. This brand features a different kind of clean beauty, with incredible cosmetic actives, along with a love for antioxidants like White Tea and the ever prestigious Black Rose. It also combines luxurious naturals and has an axis on green beauty.

Our ever changing world was one of the inspirations behind this line. The other you can read more about it here.

Nancy Gagnon


Nancy has been involved, internationally, with some aspect of manufacturing and product design since the early 2000s. She has worked with some of the most seasoned minds in the industry and is well regarded for her talents. Communication is always important for her. Therefore, she has the ability to translate complex technical concepts into Laymen's Terms and is extremely communicative and adaptive (catered to her audience).

She decided to open her own facility, which opened its doors in September 2015, to be part of the change that she wanted to see in the beauty industry, to have greater creative freedom and to allow patrons to have privacy, which is important to VIPs.

"I named my company based on what fuels my innovative spirit and creativity: my passions, which in turn, are also the passions that so many of us have, when it comes to what beauty is to us & this industry.

My creativity and the ability to engineer products and solutions around this, is one of the reasons that I am unique. While this industry is highly competitive, there will always be room for those of us who are diverse and beautifully different." You can learn more about her on her social media.
