The New Year is always a time to recharge and set goals for the year ahead. Personal and Professional goals can be hard to stick to without a plan but one goal that should always be on top of the list is Wellness! We caught up with one of our favorite wellness beauty Founders; Inna Los of Soprano Labs in Queens, New York. Inna has created an incredible organic line of soaps, lotions, and sprays that are not only good for you but good for the earth. Soprano Labs soaps make amazing gifts and the charcoal & rose soaps are two of our best selling gifts at Send Ribbon! They are the perfect gift for that friend who needs a pick me up or a Get Well Soon gift for a co-worker who is on the mend.
Thanks for joining us Inna and being a part of the Send Ribbon journey. Please tell us more about your background.
SopranoLabs was founded out of sheer personal desperation to find truly gentle skin care products that actually work. As a performer (opera singer) I had to deal with constant stress and inflammation of my skin (heavy stage makeup, frequent flying to perform all over the world, etc.). I couldn’t find any product that offered relief for my skin issues. In a fit frustration I decided to take matters into my own hands and started research...I "fell in love" with Aromatherapy, Organic Chemistry and Cosmetic formulation. It took me years to feel confident to finally concoct my own skincare solutions. Those solutions worked and SopranoLabs was born. I formulate and am involved in every step of the production process.
