Gaelle Organic is an organic and luxurious skincare brand created by the charismatic Gaelle Kennedy at the age of 64. Alongside a career as a model and hence as a make-up artist at a renowned Beverly Hills salon, Gaelle was making her own natural and organic skincare at home. Her daughter encouraged her to follow her dream and from this Gaelle Organic was born. Gaelle Organic does not chase eternal youth but believes that beauty is ageless. The skincare line is certified organic and every product is made from supreme and natural ingredients that will pamper your skin and give a luminous glow.
MEET THE FOUNDER - GAELLE ORGANIC
HOW DID IT ALL START?
After an enriching experience as an international model in my twenties, I embarked on a journey into the world of skincare. I became a certified esthetician and worked for the renowned make-up artist and Beverly Hills salon owner, Aida Grey, who understood that beauty was ageless, if you learned how to care for yourself and enjoy the process. In 2009 my daughter encouraged me to start my own skincare line, and after numerous reviews of outstanding results, it started to grow and evolve into a business.
WHAT IS THE PHILOSOPHY OF YOUR BRAND?
Gaelle Organic is all about honoring the timeless beauty within us all. Our mission is to provide immediate results and nurture skin that becomes more and more radiant with time. All of our products are designed to utilize the
divine properties of nature for luminous skin in the most organic and effective way possible.
WHAT DOES BEAUTY MEANS TO YOU?
In my opinion, true beauty is a feeling, an allure that radiates from within. Everyone can have beautiful skin and look great at any age when we honor and enjoy being ourselves. Authentic beauty and charm are ageless and their effects are eternal.
WHAT IS YOUR PASSION / OBSESSION?
My passion is helping others see immediate results and long-term improvement in their skin. In this line of work, there is nothing as rewarding as providing a service that produces results for those who struggle with skin confidence, all while staying true to our commitment to organic and healthy living. Every time we receive positive feedback from customers who have significant improvement from our products, I’m reminded of this passion to keep moving forward with the line.
WHO INSPIRES YOU?
John O’Donahue is at the very core of my inspiration. When he refers to “landscape as presence” he speaks to a dimension in the world I have always felt but is rarely spoken of. And his “beauty is the illumination at the heart of the soul” just takes my breath away. I read a few pages of John O’Donahue every night before going to sleep.
WHAT LESSONS HAVE YOU LEARNED (THE HARD WAY)?
When you leave out fillers, stabilizers and other chemicals that are convenient for manufacturers, but not beneficial to the skin, you definitely encounter issues that take some getting around. You can think you got them all sorted out, and then something as simple as increasing the sizes of the batches you manufacture can make you revisit them. Nature is amazingly complex – not at all as neat and tidy as a laboratory – and that is a huge blessing that comes with the need to pay a special kind of attention.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU WANT THE CONSUMER TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND?
The most important thing I want consumers to know about Gaelle Organic is that you don’t need perfumes, alcohols, synthetic chemicals or countless products to achieve your most radiant skin. Having beautiful, luminous skin is possible with just a couple of minutes of easy, daily care using all organic products. It really can be that simple.
WHAT ARE YOUR BEST BEAUTY TRICKS?
My favorite beauty tricks include wearing a hat for sun protection, staying active, incorporating healthy ingredients in my diet, practicing quality skincare and using minimal makeup. I truly believe that beauty is a light that shines from within, so letting your skin breath and naturally glow with clean, organic skincare is essential. Just a bit of shadow on the eyes and a touch of color on the lips are my favorite ways to accentuate my features and let my skin speak for itself.
