Sapodilla Skin Care was officially started by Tessa Alexander in 2015. Although her products were a hit long before that. Her early childhood was set in the beautiful Island of Grenada. There she lived in an orphanage named, "The sapodilla home". This was the beginning of beautiful memories & the need to help others. This was also the meaning behind the naming of this brand.
Tessa says, "giving back comes naturally when you were always given. I'm always looking for a way to be kind to my friends or to help a stranger." Her goal is to be able to help children and mothers in need, all over the globe. Her memories at the orphanage gave her a reason to give back.
A flight attendant, as well as an entrepreneur. Tessa is a mother of boys. Tessa began making natural products to protect her family from unnessary chemicals. Also with asthma being an issue at home she wanted products that wouldn't induce asthma attacks or irritate her children's breathing. Her all vegan line consist of only natural Ingredients and essential oils. No chemically made fragrances are used. This is to maintain a safe breathing environment while using her products.
