And this is how it all began....
With a miscarriage. 3 in total in fact. If you've had a miscarriage, you'll know how devasting and emotional it can be. It was while I was researching ways to stay pregnant (hello Google!) that I discovered the world of natural and organic skincare. I wanted to give my body the best shot at conceiving and keeping, a healthy baby, so I began eating organically as much as possible and using only natural, organic skincare products.
Two healthy babes later, I was passionate about using only high quality, natural and organic products on my children’s skin AND my skin.
But the realities of balancing a family budget on maternity leave meant I was often forced to compromise. And when it came to choosing between that organic baby bum balm or spending $50 on a nourishing night cream for this tired Mum… well, I think you know who came last on the list!
So once again I got to researching and discovered you can actually make skincare - who knew! I started experimenting (sometimes more successfully than others!) and began creating skin care products from natural and organic ingredients. My beautiful family and friends soon jumped on the bandwagon and became my willing guinea pigs.
I realised there were other parents like me searching for affordable gentle, safe, natural, effective skincare products for their children and themselves. So I studied natural skincare and launched Miss Magoo’s Natural and Organic Skincare in 2014 - 6 months after the birth of Emily, fondly nicknamed Miss Magoo. And I'm still just as passionate about creating affordable gorgeous natural and organic skincare products for you.
