OUR ROOTS

Hawaiian jungle

My name is Erin Elizabeth, Founder & CEO.  I ventured to the Huelo jungle on Maui from the Pacific Northwest with a B.A. Degree in Radio/TV/Digital Media Productions and a minor in Costume Design from University of Idaho, Moscow.

Rainbows, whales, waterfalls, oh my!  As a Pisces who is passionate about saving marine life, I readily dove into studying alternative organic skin ingredients, essential oils, and plant-based products that could be utilized to save the ocean.  In 2014 ONE LOVE BODY SOUL was born due to aspiring healthy and happy armpits!  Our natural mango butter deodorant has taken quite the journey; from tubes to jars to now proudly, compostable packaging!  The amazing recipe has been loved and improved to the tee by friends and Ohana for many years.

A love for yoga has been a deep influence, not to mention a big self-care savior to running a business.  I continue to study with a 300 Hour RYS yoga certification in the jungle at Maya Yoga, under the amazing Nicki Doane.

Our second product originated from the heart of the Black Rock City Desert, home of Burning Man.  I’ve assisted in building stages, vast geodesic domes, and spent thousands of hours scattered over a decade with exquisite humans tromping around in the dust, appreciating art, the land, and getting to know ourselves better.  Let me tell you, shit get’s dry and rugged out there–extreme weather conditions people!  Especially your lips.  We had to create a lip butter.  Well, we did, and it’s been tested and approved by Burners of all regions for many sunrise surprises.

In 2015 NPR announced oxybenzone is a hamful chemical to coral reproduction. The Environmental Working Group and Consumer Reports have both come out with additional ingredients being harmful. These products typically include a combination of two to six of the following active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate.  Mineral sunscreens use zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide as their main active ingredient.  Our mineral sunscreen recipe gives the body both UVA and UVB protection without harming delicate life and coral reproduction under the sea.

In spare time I find pleasure in backpacking, moon bathing, snorkeling, crafting organic cold-pressed juices, flow arts, yoga, camping, travel, and dance.

There is no way one body could make this engine go on their own.  I have an amazing love warrior team, and life partner, Dani.  Check out the Ohana page to meet some incredible souls who have assisted in constructing this brand.
