Simple. Healthy. Holsome.
Hi, I'm Shanika, Founder & CEO of Holsome Habits LLC. Living as naturally as possible has always been a part of who I am. I grew up in a family that always used organic and all-natural simple home remedies, heavily imbued with castor and olive oils to moisturize and heal the body from ailments.
This reliance on simple, natural, healing products carried over to my own family when I became a mom. Both my children have eczema, and I hated seeing how uncomfortable it made them. I wanted to make sure they had the best of what I knew and loved all my life - safe, all-natural products, specifically formulated for their sensitive, melanin skin.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything that worked as well or was affordable. So, I decided to go back to my roots of handmade remedies that nourished and replenished the skin. The antibiotics that were constantly prescribed for my son didn't stop his recurring ear infections, but essential oils did. The over-the-counter treatments for eczema were "okay" but overpriced and chocked full of ingredients I couldn't pronounce and honestly didn't trust.
It was time to take matters into my own hands. Knowing that 60-80% of what we put on our skin gets into our bloodstream, I started small with natural shea and cocoa butter, combined with natural and essential oils. My kids' skin loved it! I then introduced it to my family members who wanted to avoid harsh chemicals or unnatural ingredients in their skincare products as much as I did.
That's how my first all-natural, handmade body butter was born. One of the first things I learned in my research was how crucial using organic oils is to our health. I was even more convinced of the need to keep my ingredients as natural and organic as possible when I experienced the incredible health benefits of using all-natural products for myself and my kids. I knew that if I wanted to help moms like myself and other persons in need of a healthy skincare routine, I had to make my products affordable. So that's what I did.
Today, Holsome Habits produces only high-quality natural products that empower people to live healthier lives at a cost they love. We provide consumers with a safe and convenient online shopping space that embodies the love of family and healthy lifestyle practices in which I was raised. We are committed to selling only exceptional, all-natural, organic, and vegan products we feel comfortable using on ourselves and our loved ones.
I am so proud of the company I have created for my family, friends, and you. I promise to continue to develop products that give you a chemical-free alternative to the products you use daily.
Continue to live healthy, happy, and ‘holsome’.
