Yesterday, I walked into the most magnificent apartment overlooking the grounds of the American Museum of Natural History and was greeted by a vision of loveliness, Tata Harper. Tata has launched a 100% natural skincare line. If she could bottle her own essence and sell it, she would make a fortune. She just had a baby three months ago and looks more stunning than Gisele did postpartum. Besides being green-eyed and blonde, she is also brainy; she was an industrial engineer in her native Colombia. Tata conceived of and started the line five years ago after being unable to find products that she wanted to use. She wanted potions that were luxurious and 100% natural. She was “tired of putting cancer juice” on her skin. Now, while that is mildly sensationalistic, I'm totally on board with her concept of non-synthetic, plant-derived, almost entirely organic ingredients.
