I Am Woman
Tell us about Yourself
My name is Taiann (Tai for short). I am a Los Angeles native on a mission to spread the message of non-toxic living, and self-love through my natural skin care line --
Skin care has been the center of my world for over 10 years. I received my esthetician license in 2006 and have been continuing my education ever since.
In my free time I love hiking, being in nature, reading, trying new vegan restaurants and hanging with my girlfriends & dog, Isley.
When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
The Universe has shown me time and time again that everything, big or small, happens for a reason. The worst thing I can do about a negative situation is harp on it or complain. This usually creates a snowball effect of calling in more negative situations.
I try my best to be accepting of what is and find the most productive way to move through it.
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
I was inspired to create PurpL Goat through my struggle with severe cystic acne, which led to a lack of self-love. Nothing on the market worked for me. Once I saw instant healing from my formulations, I knew I had to put it out to the world.
Passion keeps me going. Every item in my line is created for myself, or a loved one dealing with an ailment.
I recently experienced a skin condition called, "perioral dermatitis". I believe my case was brought on by stress, and using topical steroids for inflammation throughout my life. My skin was extremely angry. The condition brought on a lot of gloom - but I felt inspired to create again! I have two new products in the works to help others suffering with this affliction. :)
