upcycled coffee in body care?

"I can’t recommend this place enough! The employees are so knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about helping you find the best products for you. I went in when I was really struggling with my eczema. And the girls showed me the company Graydon. I have been using their products for almost a year now and they have been my holy grail. Since then I make special trips to Kelowna just to shop here and have yet to find a product I don’t love. Practice self care and go to Portia-Ella you won’t regret it."
"This was by far the best time I have ever had shopping for health and beauty products:) Such an incredible demonstration of kindness and knowledge interwoven into a fun and uplifting shopping experience. YOU MUST visit Portia-Ella if you are looking for ethical, healthy and beautiful skin and body care. I would give 6 stars plus if possible."

From her mother: "I am an advocate for natural health products and so grateful to be able to have my kids free from toxins and chemicals. From a parents view, setting up my kids health for success is #1."
"I love supporting Canadian owned businesses, and the women here are so knowledgeable and supportive. It's completely a judgement free zone, and after receiving some samples a couple weeks ago I returned this weekend and picked up some products that have made my skin feel fantastic. Once I establish a routine I plan on returning to add a few things to my skin care. 💜thank you!"
