A Mother’s Homemade Skin Remedy For Her Infant Turns Into A Thriving Skincare Company!
Heather Rosencrantz is the Founder of Dirty Girl Farm based in Royal Oak, MI and is an early innovator of “clean beauty” – skincare made with only natural, plant-based ingredients.
She started her business over two decades ago, in 1994, as a botanical grower selling plants at a local farmers market and then introduced a DIY plant-based skincare product she had made at home to help remedy her then infant daughter’s skin rash.
The homemade prodcut, called “Boo Boo Balm” was developed to relieve her daughter’s itchy and irritated skin. It worked wonders for her baby girl and when she brought Boo Boo Balm to her farm stand where she sold botanicals, at the encouragement of friends and family, it sold out instantly and Dirty Girl Farm skincare was born!
Dirty Girl Farm now has hundreds of skincare products and a flagship store in Royal Oak, MI with online sales across the U.S.
What makes this local Detroit Michigan area company so special is that the founder, Heather, draws inspiration from her own journey developing organic eco-friendly skincare for her own child. She taps into plant life and her extensive knowledge of botanicals to mindfully make healthy, plant-based skincare remedies for kids, parents, and the entire family.
