My mother and grandmother taught me first to look to my spiritual wellbeing for beauty. I was raised with holistic, naturopathic, and aromatherapy from as early as I can remember. After a few years of living in London, Hong Kong and a lot of traveling to a lot of countries along the way, I returned back to Manhattan feeling exhausted and disconnected from the creative career path I had started on. I began focusing on my inner and outer wellbeing and began to research what I was using my skin. It was a wake up call for me to live more mindfully and explore my personal wellness from a different perspective. I began to explore beauty products made with greener ingredients. Through this process, I discovered that beauty is more than simply what you put on your skin, but rather a way of life, how you feel, the choices that you make to live gracefully on this earth. As life evolves, MM is evolving too and has made a new turn towards organic haircare and lifestyle beauty. with a focus on being environmentally conscious. We’re focused on reducing the carbon footprint on our packaging with glass and metal containers as we continue to evolve this collection we call Mo Mi. I’m so over the moon and incredibly grateful to all of you who have joined me and our little MM family along this journey.
