After suffering from an undiagnosable illness and being bedridden for six months with daily panic attacks and depression, Sarah Biggers looked to naturopathic medicine for relief.

She made LIFESTYLE changes (EP seriously supports lifestyle changes!) with her diet and by using holistic medicine. Sarah quickly improved and “realized if what she put in her body was so impactful, what she put on her body was equally important”.

With this knowledge and her professional makeup background, Sarah created CLOVE + HALLOW.

With CLOVE + HALLOW, I knew I could fill an important void in the market and change the perception that clean cosmetics can’t compete with their conventional counterparts. Running a product-based business comes with many challenges, but each day that I am able to empower women with access to safer, better beauty products is a good one in my book.
