THE ILLNESS (AND HEALING) THAT INSPIRED BORN AGAIN
I am so excited that you found us, and I’m looking forward to sharing a vulnerable part of my life that has led me to creating the Born Again line. In 2016, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder known as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
My first ever symptom occurred when I was on a trip to Idaho visiting some good friends. One morning I had woken up and realized that my white bed sheets had turned blue. Confused, I got up and walked to the bathroom and rinsed off my face. The moment my hands touched my skin, my face began to turn that same blue pigment. Hours later, I began feeling nauseous, short of breath, and fatigued. I was taken to the ER which would soon unravel into the story that put me on my journey to Born Again Skin Care.
Days later, after arriving at home, I went to the hospital to have some test run to see if they could figure out the cause of my bizarre symptoms. Turns out, due to my bodies lack of oxygen, my bodies' defense was giving off some sort of blue pigment. While the “blueness” subsided other symptoms such as irregular heart rate, fatigue, new allergies, sensitivities, lack of feeling in my hands and feet, began to become more frequent. I was constantly breaking out in hives and rashes and nothing would make the pain go away, much less make the hives go away.
I felt like I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. After trying every product under the sun, I was left with no other choice than to take matters into my own hands. After years of scientific research and meeting with naturopathic specialist I created products that were good for the planet and healing for my skin.
Fast forward to a year later, the idea of helping people achieve their dream skin naturally became my motivation. I have done countless hours of research by myself and with teams of professionals creating the perfect products to cater to all skin types. It was my goal to design products for people who have skin like mine, to have peace of mind when using my products.
Sourcing out nature’s prime ingredients changed my life, and I want you to experience the same transformation that I did. At Born Again we will always dot the i’s and cross the t’s to ensure you quality natural products that deliver results, without compromise.
With Love, Marissa
