SALLY'S STORY: From Cancer To Skin Care
Sally B’s Skin Yummies is a labor of love, founded by Atlanta-native and self-confessed “product girl” Sally Larsen. A healthy, active, and conscious woman, Sally embarked upon her 30’s as a successful businesswoman, a mother of two young boys, and, like most 30-somethings, without too many cares in the world. But at the age of 37, doctors discovered a cancerous bone tumor growing out of her pelvis. After a year of operations, radiation, and plenty of stress while bedridden with two curly-haired toddlers at her side, Sally was cancer-free. However, her remission presented a surprising new challenge: a diagnosis of Lymphedema. During her cancer treatments the lymph nodes in her right leg were removed. This resulted in that area of her body unable to regulate fluid or filter out bacteria. A chronic condition, Sally would endure weight gain, infections, and a larger than normal leg. But through it all, there was a silver lining. She learned about inflammation and the negative impacts it can have on the entire body system, including the immune system.
This was the 1990s when there was little mainstream conversation about the benefits of an organic lifestyle. However, armed with first-hand knowledge of inflammation, she replaced processed foods with organic, healthy options. The results were inspiring, which led Sally to have another ah-ha moment. What about the products she was putting directly on her skin? What if she started feeding her skin with organic products?
Sally was on to something, but the organic personal care market was in its infancy and the products available were not effective. It was then that she let her entrepreneurial spirit take over and set out to transform her seasonal hobby of lotion making into her life’s calling. Under the guidance of a nutritionist and a chemist, Sally built a solid foundation of skin care principles and formulations. Then, armed with countless hours of ingredient and cosmetic research, Sally began creating products void of chemicals and toxins on her own. In 2005, armed with a raved-about Shea Butter Bar and a must-have Healing Hand Butter, she launched Sally B’s Skin Yummies.
WHY ORGANIC SKIN CARE?
All too often healthy people are being diagnosed with life altering illnesses like asthma, autism, cancer, or allergies. And often times, for unknown reasons. Most of us are convinced that diet is the most important factor to improve our health, but research has linked chemical ingredients in our products and chemicals in our environment to our health. Whether you are healthy and hoping to stay that way or on a journey to health and wellness, it is important to pay attention to the products you put on your skin.
