Last Fall at the Women’s Show in Toronto, our correspondent Nicole had a chance to talk to Clean Kiss Organics founder Jodie Pappas.
Jodie’s passion for wellness through clean living and her need to build a balanced lifestyle of yoga and fitness, led her to create her natural skincare product line, Clean Kiss Organics. She wants families to take charge of their health by reading labels and hopes that others adopt her number one mantra “What you put ON your body, goes IN your body”.
Jodie talks to Nicole about how only a few years ago she wasn’t able to find a natural deodorant that actually worked for her. So, she took it upon herself to create it. This all-natural deodorant is different from others because you apply it yourself with just your fingers. This is more hygienic and effective as you’re rubbing it in your skin yourself. The deodorant also works through the toughest sweats – hot yoga, gym sessions, an insane work day…and is suitable for men and women of all ages.
Best part of the ingredients she uses? They’re plant-based! She uses essential oils – which are anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-viral; shea butter, coconut oil (which helps moisturize); and clays and powders – which help absorb sweat but still allow body to sweat. No chemicals or synthetics are used in the process!
From the success of her deodorant, which won the Earth Day Beauty Award (2017), she decided to develop her skincare line, making something effective for skin, using plant-based ingredients such as red raspberry seed and rose hip. She’s gone on to develop serums, toner, day cream, night cream and so much more.
Ultimately, what sets Jodie apart from the others is her positive message she tries to infuse with each product she creates. She wants women to leave the worry behind and have fun with aging. We all age so why not embrace it? “We should be confident and happy and use products that are safe”.
