Interview with Lydia Spencer about tattoo skin-aftercare

Interview with Lydia Spencer about tattoo skin-aftercare

Lydia Spencer always searched for the purest and the best in skin-care and hair-care. It was hard to find any products (that didn’t cost a fortune) that were completely free of chemicals. Because of this, She started making her own products. Here is a short interview with her:

 

Hello Lydia. Who are you and why did you start to make your own skin-products?

 
I’ve always been interested in natural health. Ever since I was a teenager I would experiment with natural products and always look for new ways of treating my skin with products that were chemical-free. I’ve had persistent skin issues since puberty and I tried many acne products but they never made any difference for me. I turned to using only the most natural and nourishing products and I experimented with making my own – they worked much better than anything I had purchased from the store. I never thought I would make a business out of it, but after going to art school and managing a business for someone else, I realized that I had all the tools to start my own business. My job was very high-stress and it had taken a toll on my health. I needed to get back to my creativity and do something I loved. So, that’s how Nature Goddess was created.

Are the commercial products so bad for the skin?

There are actually plenty of products out there that are good for your skin. The problem is, they cost a fortune! I wanted to create something that was simple, nourishing, and affordable for everyone. I also wanted to create a product that would stand for something, and empower women to care for themselves with completely natural products; and I wanted them to be beautiful. 
 

What is the diffence in your goddess-boxes? 

 
A unique thing about my products is that I don’t use any water is my lotions.
Which means that I don’t have to use any preservatives. All my products are pure, concentrated nourishment for your skin. 
 

Do you develop these products yourself? 

 
Yes, I develop them completely by myself. From recipe to label design. It is a total creative process for me to come up with a product idea and a goddess, then bring them together to create a product. 
 

Do you need to do dermatological tests?

 
There is no requirement for dermatologist testing when your business is under a certain size. There are certain approved ingredients and unnapproved ones. But, because I am using completely safe and holistic ingredients that are safe, there would be no need for testing. 
 

Why is tattoo after-care important? How do you reommend to treat the tattoos?

 
Tattoo aftercare is important because a tattoo is basically an open-wound and it can get infected very easily.
Having something that will not only protect but encourage quick healing is important. A lot of tattoo aftercare salves that you buy have ingredients that are irritating to the skin, like mineral oil and dyes. 
 

Do you ship Worldwide?

 
Yes, I do offer worldwide shipping on my website: https://www.naturegoddessskincare.com/
 

What is your next product good for?

 
My newest product is for dry skin. I live in a cold climate and dry skin is a big issue in the winter. So I created Winter Goddess to help sooth and heal dry winter skin. 

 

Do you support any charity-organisation?

 
Not yet, but I hope to do something in the future with women’s organizations that help victims of abuse. Women, in particular are subjected to abuse because of their lack of power. I would love to help women who have been victimized regain their power and independence. That’s a part of what Nature Goddess is about. But as it is my first year in business, I haven’t gotten that far yet. 
 

Do you know www.newTree.org?

Trees for Life – A way out of the vicious circle of poverty and desertification Since 2003 newTree has been working in Burkina Faso and other Sahelian countries. In cooperation with its local partner tiipaalga, newTree contributes to mitigate desertification through the promotion of assisted natural regeneration. Degraded land is protected by solid fences that keep young plants safe from animal browsing as well as from illegal tree cutting. Farming techniques that are adapted to climate change ensure sustainable harvests in the long run. Thanks to efficient mud made cook stoves, a household is able to save up to two tons of firewood per year. For newTree training of farmer families and women’s groups is of utmost importance. Regeneration of natural resources, long-term improvement of crop yields and generation of additional income – a precious valuable commitment to a lasting improvement of living conditions of the Sahelian people.

 

I do now! 
 

Do you hug trees? (It’s good for your health!)

 
I do! And I live in the woods of Maine so I am surrounded by trees.
I love being able to grow my own food and be surrounded by nature. 

Thank you Lydia, for your time to answer these questions!

 

Here is a journey through Henry David Thoreau’s Maine woods:
