My spouse Mike found our building, located at 132 West Northwest Highway in 2017. At the time, the building had carpeting and offices. It needed some TLC. We fell in love with this building and the Arlington Heights community.
The picture above is from winter 2021 during our building’s renovation. The doors were one of the last things to go in.
Before us, the building served as law offices. Before that, it was a Kentucky Fried Chicken. Prior to that, it was a gas station.
Before we could begin renovations, our building needed to remediate the land upon which she stood. The gas station left tanks under the ground way back when and they were leaking. We worked with contractors, brokers and the Illinois EPA to remediate. It feels like our building went through a lot of healing from 2017-2021.
And now we have the privilege to share this space with you. Our mission here? To offer you clean beauty options and to invite you to trust yourself in choosing products that work best for your body.
How will we do this? By offering products with naturally derived, organic and/or wild crafted ingredients. Our vendors care about the integrity of their ingredients and formulas. Ultimately, what we put in and on our bodies affects not only us, but our local and global communities. That’s why we believe what we use is important for all living things.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
