Reason No. 58 to Spend Sunday Out: Farm to Girl Skincare Launch

Dr. Kim Warren-Rhodes and Nurse Kristen Pokky are announcing the launch of Farm to Girl skin care today, November 3, with a special event at Santa Rita Cantina from 3-6pm.

Warren-Rhodes, a NASA scientist born in Austin, set out along with Pokky to create fresh skin care made for women by women; using fairly traded, organic and sustainably grown ingredients sourced from women and small-scale farmers internationally. 20% of profits are donated back to women’s health and education in developing communities. Right now, a rural women’s health clinic in the Solomon Islands is already underway.

After receiving her bachelor’s degree from UT Austin, Warren-Rhodes went on to get her Ph.D. in environmental engineering at Stanford. While teaching a class in Environmental Biology at the University of San Francisco, she and her students discovered that most skin and baby care contain chemicals that disrupt hormones and break down into toxic and cancer-causing substances. In her travels she became inspired by the simplicity of indigenous women’s beauty routines and skin care using local ingredients and anti-aging African oils. Launched in 2013, Farm to Girl was created "by two Texas women dedicated to empowering, uplifting and supporting women farmers, villagers, entrepreneurs and small sustainable farms globally and locally. Farm to Girl handcrafts premium skin and baby care from fresh, healthy ingredients made in villages with traditional processes free of synthetic and harmful chemicals."
