About the Craftswoman

I always wanted to be in the medical field growing up. I have always wanted to help people using science. Studying Anthropology/Biology/Chemistry was one of the best things that happened to me. Not only was I interested in learning about the human body and how our system works but the Anthropology classes I took opened a whole new world for me. I am definitely an observer. I wonder about why people act/react in certain situations and the mentality and thought processes behind their actions. I also wonder about how one’s culture can influence those decisions.

After graduating with a integrated Bachelors in Anthropology/Biology/Chemistry I got to work with DNA. I made copies of thousands of peoples' DNA for HLA typing. In short, I sequenced DNA in order to match patients and donors for bone marrow or cord blood transplants. The experience was unlike anything I experienced before and I appreciate having the opportunity to do so. After that I worked for a fertility laboratory and got to be a big part of getting women from all walks of life pregnant by the process of Intrauterine Insemination.

With my background in science and my passion for beauty I slowly but surely noticed that we are using way too many chemicals that are not at all good for the skin. I also noticed the amount of people suffering from eczema and psoriasis. I also know people with these skin conditions and I know how hard it can be to treat these skin types on a daily basis. I, myself, was also tired of always having a blackhead or pimple on my face and knew there was a natural solution to these skin problems.

Skincare is not a new thing. The first archaeological evidence of cosmetics usage is from Ancient Egypt about 6,000 years ago. Today we see influential ads exposing us to the thought of needing these chemically based products and in turn we are not only hurting our skin but our pockets as well (pockets are important too). When it comes to skincare there is no money in the world that can compare to having natural solutions to skin problems. It took me almost ten years to realize this (I started wearing makeup at 16) and there is no going back when you realize you don't need those costly products that do nothing but poison your skin.

In a time when being and staying healthy is a phenomenon, skincare is being overlooked and branding is what most people look at when buying a product. Keep in mind that the skin is the biggest organ of the body and it is important to treat it like so. Join the natural skincare community and see the changes that your skin will go through for the best.

I have received so much good feedback on the SlayGoddessCosmetics products. In turn, your comments inspire and motivate me to create and make good quality skincare products free of any harsh chemicals. I am so glad to be helping people in need of a natural solution to their skincare problems and I am happy to be providing natural, organic and safe skincare products.

Love, peace and happiness Gods and Goddesses,
-Carol Velasquez
