The Boston WIN Lab has four Beauty and Home entrepreneurs entering the program in 2017, all with the goal of incorporating organic and all-natural ingredients into our makeup, fashion, and cleaning products. This should come as no surprise, as the all-natural and billion dollar beauty market is still on the rise. People have been buying organic foods for long enough, concerned about what goes into their bodies, it seems only natural to start worrying about what goes on our bodies and is used in our homes as well. One WINner founded her company after discovering for herself how chemicals in beauty products can have serious physical impact, while other WINners are looking at natural solutions ranging from cinnamon-inspired footwear fashion to fresh-smelling laundry and home cleaning. This year’s Beauty and Home WINners are:
Krysta Lewis of Aisling Organic Cosmetics
Aisling Organic Cosmetics is a revolutionary line of high-performance and all natural/organic makeup. The line was established after the founder had been sick for years and discovered one of the culprits was her makeup. Finding no options that were all natural and high performance led her to create Aisling Organic Cosmetics.
