Customer Feedback

"Aloha Linda,

 

I received my products in the mail and love them. I was ecstatic with the speedy delivery and low shipping fee! I will definitely be purchasing products from you again, and will recommend your products to anyone. Thanks again!"  

- Alex S., Hawaii

 

"Your make-up lets me be so creative! I have been buying your products for several years now, and can, literally, adjust the color of my eyeshadow for each outfit I wear, or adjust its intensity depending on where I am going. I love the mineral shadows and love that you offer minipinches in so many products. It's easier for me to make the commitment to try new products when initial purchases can be modest. With this April order I am trying new face creams and I can't wait for them to arrive. Thank you for your excellent products."

- Sandra L., Bloomington, IL

 

"Your Apple Orchard shampoo is amazing--cleans so well, the fragrance is fresh, and it's great to know it's healthy and environmentally safe!"  

- Joanne K., Richmond, VA

 

"This is more than just a passion for entrepreneurship for Linda.  Her mind and heart are led by her mission not only to celebrate the beauty of women, but to do so healthily for them and the planet.  She accomplishes all of this in a spirit of ease and joy.


Because of a rare opportunity of timing and circumstances for us both, I was once able to meet Linda personally.  She generously gave of her personal time and talent to research the correct foundatio

n color for my hard to match olive undertones.  I soon forgot about her background in law. Linda's approach even transcended the typical makeup artist.  Rather, in a spirit of playfulness tempered by expertise, she suggested colors that I would have never found on my own.  She has a very expansive color range, beginning from the sheerest natural shades to absolute rock-and-roll hues!  Because of her I see myself in a new light, and I like what I see.
 

Linda has proven through Zosimos Botanicals that it is possible to produce products that are healthy for people and healthy for the environment.  Linda's lab is outfitted wherever possible with recycled materials and what's more, her 'love walk' with the planet encompasses her entire life.


As this review on her fabulous line is being written, she is concurrently preparing to travel to support the preservation of white lions in South Africa.  Linda is so many things wrapped into one:  loving wife and mother, a powerful entrepreneur, artists, scientist, advocate for women and the planet, and all around super girly-girl!"
