Meet the Founder
Founder, Beauty Heroes
Longtime spa director and healthy beauty expert, Jeannie Jarnot, is on a mission to deliver beauty you can trust, one Hero product at a time. After uncovering the prevalence of toxic ingredients in the spa industry – and how they might have contributed to her own infertility – Jeannie began her quest to make clean beauty the rule rather than the exception. The complexity of navigating cosmetic ingredients only fueled her passion to make it simple to discover safe, effective and luxurious skincare. By working only with brands who have an unwavering commitment to ethical sourcing, ingredient purity and unparalleled quality, she has instituted a new standard of excellence and transparency in the industry, establishing her company as the most trusted source for healthy beauty.
Through her Inspired Curation process, Jeannie works directly with brand founders to hand select, test and approve each product featured by Beauty Heroes. Inspired by the belief that ‘quality over quantity’ is the new way to shop, Beauty Heroes’ monthly delivery service slows down the discovery process and introduces clean beauty through an intentional and educational approach, inviting us all to ‘Use less. Love more.’
Jeannie recently published her first e-Book, Be Your Own Beauty Hero, and is working on her second book. Her love and respect for nature stems from her native home of Honolulu, Hawaii. Today, she lives in Northern California with her husband and young son.
It’s not uncommon for beauty brand founders to be influenced by their ancestors and the recipes and remedies of days of yore. But for OSEA Founder, Jenefer Palmer, the inspiration behind her seaweed-based skincare line was more like a birthright, passed down from her tenacious grandmother, Elsa Reuschle, one of the first female chiropractors in the US.
Being a green beauty brand is about more than healthy, good for you, ingredients. The green beauty movement is also leading the way in sustainable packaging and business practices that support the health of our environment. While Vapour Organic Beauty’s green beauty packaging is secondary to the formula inside the bottle, it is still an important part of our experience with a brand, and any brand founder will tell you that it’s one of the most challenging parts of creating and sustaining a compelling beauty brand. Not only does packaging need to be functional, it must also be beautiful, adequately protect the product inside from the air and elements, and be as sustainable as possible. This month we celebrate the launch of Vapour Organic Beauty’s transition from plastic to glass packaging with our Limited Edition Discovery (that’s selling out in record time). I asked Kristine Keheley and Kyrsia Boinis to share with us just what is involved in a packaging update and more ways Vapour is leading the way in sustainable beauty.
