The well&belle story
That's me, Lise, the owner and founder of well&belle
Just before being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I was sick for months and could barely get out of bed. I had numbness and tingling from head to toe and had the most debilitating fatigue. I went to every type of doctor and none of them really helped me. Mostly, I was told it was nothing, or that they just didn’t know. So I started reading about potential causes of these issues, and some suggested heavy metal toxicity might be one cause. Toxins in our environment might be another. Either way, it came down to toxins.
Although I was already eating mostly organic food and using natural cleaning products, I knew I could do better with my beauty products. I bought some of my skincare and beauty products locally, but ended up buying many others online. But I couldn’t always find the products I was looking for, or the products didn’t do what they promised. So, I took the plunge and decided to open my own online store and sell these products to women who've had their own health issues, and to others who want to prevent them.
All of our products are non-toxic, cruelty free, and most are gluten free as well. Many are organic or contain organic ingredients. I make sure I pick products that not only as healthy as possible, but also that are just as good, if not better, than conventional ones, because no one wants to compromise on quality. We also re-use packaging materials as much as possible to avoid creating new waste. Additionally, we support various charitable organizations such as children's hospitals, environmental organizations and other worthy causes.
