When I began my journey as a radio host I put considerable thought it what message I wanted to share on this platform. Hidden Secrets to Health became an opportunity to share the power of the things we put in our bodies, on our skin, and in our minds. These all play a role in how we feel, how we grow, and how we process the information coming at us at a rapid pace.

I was incredibly fortunate to meet Renee Tavoularis and Lynne Florio, the founders of Planted In Beauty and the Well Within Skincare Line. This dynamic duo have worked together for many years, and brought their passion for quality products, environmentally friendly and sustainable to their skincare line. Here’s an excerpt for our interview.


First of all, it’s important to understand the current landscape of the U.S. beauty industry standards. Briefly,

  • 1938 was the last time a law was passed addressing the chemicals in our personal care products.
  • In the U.S. there are over 11 banned ingredients in our products. In the European Union, there are more than 1,300 ingredients
  • There are over 10,000 chemicals being used in our personal care products
  • The incidence of cancer in the US has increased from 1 in 20 to 1 in 8; and, 1 out of 5 personal care products have ingredients that are linked to cancer.
