Natasha has come a long way from being the only girl in heels in the chemistry labs in college to redefining the science of beauty.

With degrees in Kinesiology & science, Natasha originally planned to go into midwifery and spent three years on call for births as a birth doula & lactation specialist, working in hospitals in Canada & Africa. Always having a passion for both the sciences and all things beauty, it wasn’t until she combined the two that she was hooked!
