Marie Chantal ~ Seeing the world through rose colored glasses

Today, I'm taking a break from fragrance reviews to smell the roses and to introduce you to Marie Chantal who lives in Toronto, Canada. We became friends when she stopped by to read a post on Noteworthy Fragrances several weeks ago. I've found a wonderful, delightful and inspirational new friend! She will be quite surprised to read this editorial on Noteworthy Fragrances, but sometimes there are people out there in the world that are just too nice to keep all to myself. She is an avid blogger as "Wild Rose" and has posted some of the most beautiful photos I've ever seen online.

Marie has followed her heart and has put her soul into creating a natural skincare product line that is rose based and formulated using organic ingredients whenever possible. Where it is not possible to source organic ingredients, she has carefully selected the gentlest ingredients currently available, resulting in products which are kind to sensitive skin. Starting a new business of skin care products is not the easiest thing to do, nor will it in all honesty make Marie independently wealthy. But when you believe in a philosophy and care about others like she does...with patience and a huge dose of Wild Rose determination, I know she will be ultimately successful.

Marie Chantal developed from an interest in handmade skin care products and the enjoyment of creating wonderful creams and lotions at home. After much research into raw ingredients and recipe formulation, she decided to launch her own product range. The philosophy behind the company grew from concerns about the ingredients commonly found in mass-produced creams and lotions and a desire to produce a purer alternative.

All products are handmade in small batches to ensure quality control and each of the products in our range has been microbiologically tested for safety, in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Standards for Cosmetic Products. Marie Chantal would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about herself and her products so please feel free to contact her with any questions you have on her products or just drop her a note of encouragement, especially those who've experienced the 'joys' of starting your own business! Thanks!
