Deforestation and the Beauty Industry, from Madagascar to Ny'Ala Skin Care

  • The JCC 475 Victory Blvd Staten Island, NY 10301 (map)

Did you know that deforestation is directly linked to some of the ingredients we use in our cosmetics and skin care? We will discuss my journey in the rainforests of Madagascar, and what led me to pair beauty and business for a greater cause.

Madagascar is an incredible place, with over 90% of the plants and animals being endemic. That amazing fact is paired with over 85% of the original rainforest being destroyed. But, there are incredible people and projects that are working hard to fix the rainforests and bring back their vitality, while also creating sustainable business opportunities. Learn about why I started Ny'Ala Skin Care, and our current mission.
