Violets Are Blue Founder, Cynthia Besteman- “My Breast Cancer diagnosis, which came out of the blue, and made me realize it doesn't matter what you put in your body, if what you put on it is toxic! I made my own products during my treatment and then met women who didn't have the ability to make their own, or the energy to sit in drug stores and read the back of labels. That is when I realized I wanted to make a clean beauty brand that gave back to women with cancer.” Cynthia started the line in 2013 by searching out the best oils, butters, and herbs to solve for dry skin. The beautiful line is made up of natural products designed to alleviate skin concerns and bring lasting moisture to your skin.
Cynthia and the Violets are Blue team donates a set of products to each woman as they begin their treatment at New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital.
Cynthia’s everyday Credo: "Risk joy" which means, do whatever you can to create joy albeit jumping into the deep end, taking a trip, or starting a business!
