BC: Can you tell us a little about your process? What goes into the creation of each product, from the initial idea all the way to the finished version?

HBA: I wish I had a process! Basically, I wake up in the middle of the night and think something like, “sunflower oil and camellia oil combined!” The next thing you know, I’ve got a new product. I try and go with my intuition, and it usually works. I start with the formula and ingredients; then I make the label design; and finally I photograph the product and market it. The entire process takes a longer than one might expect. Coming up with the product is the easy part—the hard part is packaging and marketing.

BC: Have you ever had any disasters happen while working on a new product?

HBA: Yes! When I first started making the Grits and Honey Scrub, I didn’t realize I had to use tupelo honey, as that is the only honey that won’t crystallize.

BC: Have you ever created something and ended up not liking it?

HBA: Yes… and it didn’t make it to market.

BC: Fair enough! Do you have a favorite material or ingredient you like to work with?

HBA: Camellia oil, because it is non-clogging and is full of antioxidants, fatty acids, and UV properties.

BC: If you could only use one skincare product for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

HBA: Eye cream, because it’s a multi-tasker—you can use it all over!

BC: Where do you find your inspiration?

HBA: My backyard and nature. All that grows is a possible inspiration for my creations.

BC: If you could have any celebrity, living or dead, use your stuff, who would it be?

HBA: Great question! I think Catherine Deneuve—she is just stunning!

  1. I have been using HollyBeths Rose Geranium facial products in the Rose Geranium scent and they are refreshing, balancing and make me feel like I’ve been to a spa. The face moisturizer is thick and protects against the elements, now that it’s cold, without harmful ingredients.
