Meet the Skincare Entrepreneur: Julie Longyear from Blissoma

Formula Botanica is currently interviewing beauty, skincare and wellness entrepreneurs all over the world to learn their secrets of running a successful brand. So far we’ve spoken to Anju Rupal, Founder of Abhati Suisse and Meryl Marshall of Hynt Beauty. In our latest episode, we speak to Julie Longyear from Blissoma to learn more about her journey of becoming a skincare entrepreneur.

Blissoma is the elegant marriage of herbal form and function: botanical innovations that really work. Julie is proud to bring you the result of nearly a decade of her life’s work exploring the power of plants. Julie began her path at age 23 when she graduated from college and found herself dealing with debilitating migraines that made it nearly impossible to retain a regular job. Slowly and steadily, she nursed herself back to health using botanicals to fortify and rebalance.

In applying this same persistence to skin care, Julie has spent hours poring over research, while breaking new ground to defy the limits set by stock formulations. A purist and perfectionist by nature, she has created a sophisticated, unique, and potent collection of products that proactively heal skin and enhance health.

At Blissoma, Julie has chosen to work with a much stricter ingredient palette than even most “natural” brands. The texture, colour, and smell of their products tell the story of raw nature, hand-blended to perfection, and delivered to you. All of Blissoma’s products harness the power of nature to create effective skin solution. Every product in the Blissoma collection is 100% natural, Certified Vegan, made in-house, and packed with certified organic botanicals, bioavailable vitamins, essential fatty acids, and skin-soothing seed oils. They are also 100% free of petrochemicals, parabens, synthetic colors, fragrances, vegetable emulsifying wax, pthalates, neuropeptides, or other artificial chemicals commonly found in beauty products.

In our exclusive interview, Julie tells us about her experiences in starting and growing her gorgeous skincare brand. Julie tells us what it takes to grow a strong brand, how to market your business and what she wishes she’d known before she got started. You don’t want to miss this interview!
