Taking great pride in her craft, Sharon personally scrutinises every ingredient to ensure the purity and quality of every plant and essential oil meets her exacting standards. No product is bottled without her approval and the range is cruelty free and free from pesticides and many of the common cosmetic ‘nasties’ including petrochemicals, propylene glycol, silicones, phthalates (common hormone disruptors), sulfates, synthetic parabens, artificial fragrances and genetically modified ingredients.
Knowledge is power and MV advocates making better-informed decisions on what we feed our skin and, ultimately, our body.
Sharon says, “Our skin is a reflection of our inner health, so it makes perfect sense to me that we should nurture our largest and most absorbent organ - from the outside in - with ingredients that have a natural affinity with the skin and the body.”
Almost 20 years ago Sharon’s extensive research lead her to the realisation that the only way to achieve the results she believed were possible was to turn her back on the mainstream and challenge the status quo. Creating her own unique manufacture process and insisting on fewer ingredients in higher concentration to guarantee efficacy gained her the respect of holistic Aestheticians, Naturopaths and Nutritionists and attracted the attention of some of the world’s top make-up artists.
With minimal ingredients - and one of the world’s most precious essential oils as the star performer - our five-times award-winning Rose Plus Booster is testament to this.
Sharon’s impressive results focused capsule range also caught the attention of the Australian media and led to a nomination and win in the 2010 InStyle ‘Women of Style’ awards where Sharon’s passion and dedication earned her the respect of her peers.
Because time is valuable, our ‘Less is More’ philosophy extends to our daily skincare ritual and the number of products in the range. Achieving more with less is logical, honest and extremely rewarding. Disregarding advice to formulate many different versions of almost the same thing, Sharon focused on multi-purpose products that would take up far less shelf space but deliver so much more by respectfully caring for the skin, the mind and body all in the short space of 3 minutes.
With a no-compromise approach to her work and an insistence on openness and honesty in an industry where these traits are the exception rather than the rule, Sharon has gained the respect of her peers, being praised for sticking to her guns and not 'selling out'. Sharon insists there is no other way to be, saying “It's completely natural for me to be a disruptor as I believe wholeheartedly in what I do and in making a difference, no matter how small. My legacy is to advocate for change, to inspire women to embrace holistic skin health and to challenge the notion of anti-ageing by reaffirming natural beauty at any age".
