Vida Green Skincare
This is Tara. Tara is a local Mom and the proud founder of Vida Green Skincare. Tara started making handcrafted skincare products soon after her first child was born in 2005. Her daughter had eczema and sensitive skin and she was determined to make a product that would heal her daughter’s skin quickly and healthily.
After intensive research about ingredients, she came up with calendula oil and salve and thankfully, it worked incredibly well. Her skin was finally better and with the encouragement of family and friends, Tara’s handcrafted skincare business was born. She has been making and selling high quality handcrafted products since 2010.
