I’m the founder of Cashmere Moon. I create all our formulas and am currently (mostly) a one (wo)man show. I was born in Hawaii, but I call Georgia home. DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.I first research! If I’m developing a new formula or product, I research to see what natural ingredients can help whatever skin issue I want to solve. Once the research phase is over, I start to experiment with ingredients to see what works together based on textures and consistency. Once I have a few that I like, I test them on my family and I. If the products are effective, they continue on for labeling and marketing so it can be sold to customers. WHAT INSPIRES YOU?So much! Earth, my family, my pure excitement to create something from scratch and watch the progress FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.Hmmm, I love traveling and taking pictures (even though I’m not that great at it) FAVORITE THING ABOUT DOWNTOWN AUGUSTA.I LOVE the small, local shops that are everywhere.

MODERN FORESTRY​

MODERN FORESTRY​ hand-poured soy candles and wax melts theforestrystudio.com/ etsy.com/shop/ModernForestry @modernforestrycandles @modernforestry Meet The Artist WHO ARE YOU, WHERE ARE YOU FROM, & WHAT DO YOU DO?We’re John and Sarah Collins, passionate candle entrepreneurs from Greenville, SC. Although Sarah is originally from Oregon, John is a native to South Carolina. DESCRIBE YOUR PROCESS.Modern Forestry was born, in 2015, out of a passion to find a cleaner, healthier burning candle. At the time, Sarah was struggling with severe migraines, and her doctor traced her migraine triggers back to traditional paraffin wax candles. Not wanting to give up candles, she set out on a mission to find a better quality candle. After much research, she began making 100% pure soy candles with high-quality fragrance oils infused with essential oils. Her dedication sparked an interest with friends who encouraged her to begin selling the candles she had created. Since then, her hobby turned into a small business, which has now become a thriving candle company. Every Modern Forestry all-natural soy candle is hand-poured near Greenville, SC in the Blue Ridge foothills. WHAT INSPIRES YOU?Our mission statement/inspiration is “to make the love of Christ known through Modern Forestry candles.” And this passion is what truly drives us to make the best soy candle possible. FUN FACT ABOUT YOU.Our branding was actually inspired from our wedding invitation! We also love exploring waterfalls and all things outdoors with our three kids, Peter, Selah, and Glory.
