My Story – Annabell Catania
Hello SIMPUREs beautiful readers! Well, my name is Annabell, and I am the founder of SIMPURE (formally known as Auntie & Me). I was just 26 years old when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer that started in my armpit, from daily use of antiperspirant, and ended up in my right breast. After six rounds of chemotherapy and five surgeries and still no sign of remission, I decided to put my faith in holistic medicine. Finally, after less than 9 months I went into remission from the help of Dr. Conway in Vancouver, WA.
After my journey and countless hours of research, I decided this needed to be shared with the world. The not-so-commonly known harmful risks of using a deodorant—and body products in general—that are slowly poisoning our bodies. We, by default, hand our children the same harmful chemicals when they hit puberty and need an underarm deodorant, among other beauty regiment products. Unfortunately, this leads to thousands of young adults with a whole range of health problems.
I decided that there is a need to advocate to people about the harmful effects of bad elements, as well as educate about the alternatives, especially since a whole range of those commonly used ingredients are outlawed in several countries around the world, but sadly still used in the United States.
This mission has snowballed into a full line of beauty and body products that are not only all-natural but work amazingly well. I try to educate people about their health, skin and overall damage done to their bodies with the day to day products used. My passion now is to educate and produce the best possible alternatives to your daily routines for an affordable price.
