Hi, My name is Cara Phillips and I am the founder of Carmajé (carma-jay) - pure botanical skincare.
I have a passion for living as ethically and naturally as we can in this relatively un-natural and often crazy world that we live in today!
I am a passionate crusader for de-bunking the myths and the marketing hype surrounding many of the ingredients we put into and onto our bodies!

Essentially, I am a Mum and a Person who is passionate about making the most out of what I have been given in life - with my skin, my body and my mind!
