Ziggy, our first born, the inspiration behind our brand, was plagued with recurrent diaper rashes, cradle cap, baby acne and later, eczema. I tried several lotions, creams, and ointments on the market, but found they were ineffective. I needed a fast, non-toxic, truly natural solution that actually worked without all the harsh chemicals, skin deteriorating and clogging additives. With lots of research, further education and trial and error, Ziggy’s Pudding: Baby Body Butter, our signature product was born. With approval from our family pediatrician, we started our company to help as many people as we can with our handmade, safe, non-toxic and effective skincare solutions.
Founder & CEO
Hi and welcome. I am the master "mixtress", compounder, and alchemist of our brand.
My journey into non-toxic skincare began with my hair, actually. When I stopped chemically processing my hair, I started looking into the many scary chemicals put into hair products. With that knowledge, I started creating DIY treatments for my hair and using the most non-toxic hair care products I could find on the market, which was not many back then. A year after I cut my hair off and started wearing it as it grows naturally, I discovered a lump in my right breast, I was 19 yrs old. The fear of what it could mean did not hit home at the time and it was promptly removed and diagnosed as a benign growth, thank goodness. While healing from the surgery, I started looking into deodorants and what's in them, stopped using antiperspirants all together and spent the next few years getting ultrasounds on my breasts every six months.
A few years later, my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, this was the true eye opener into clean living, and a plant based lifestyle. I was an intensive care registered nurse at the time and I knew that all the medications they proposed to give to him would cripple him and cause major organ failure that he would not be able to recover from. After seeing the top MS specialist in New York City, we decided to try a different way, the plant based way. It was a two year recovery journey to get him to the point where he was symptom free and thriving. With that experience, I learned that food is truly medicine and natural health was the best way to optimal health.
Years later, when my first son was born, and started immediately experiencing all these skin issues like cradle cap, baby acne, and diaper rashes that lasted for the first three months of his life, as well as eczema, I was overwhelmed to say the least. As a first time mom, my confidence went out the window and I used all the ointments, and creams even steroid creams to no avail. His skin was damaged, irritated, and in terrible shape. I was well versed on using plant based nutrition to heal the body from within but I had to learn how to use plant based ingredients to heal his damaged skin. With the knowledge that food is medicine, I started educating myself on plant based skin formulations to heal, restore and repair his skin. When my second child started experiencing eczema, I had my arsenal ready. Every visit to our pediatrician was full of compliments regarding his skin. One day the pediatrician asked me for the recipe to my concoction for his skin and a light bulb went off, which was the birth of my company Ziggy's Pudding®-Plant based skin nutrition.
I am a former critical care registered nurse with over 12 years of experience. I look at the body from a holistic approach, and utilize my knowledge, skills and passion in formulating our products. Our skin is our largest organ, and is constantly impacted by our environment, what we ingest and ultimately what we put on it. Choose non-toxic, effective, nourishing products for healthy and radiant skin.
