A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER, TARA FOLEY
“Over a decade ago, I came up with the Follain concept after noticing a lack of transparency in my beloved beauty products, during my own journey to personal health and wellness. I was inspired to create a space where people could find products that not only worked incredibly well, without disrupting environmental health. This idea led naturally to the name Follain, which is Gaelic for ‘all that is wholesome, healthy and natural’ – a symbol of my belief that clean beauty should feel welcoming, happy and inclusive for all.
Making impact is a personal process. Everyone is in a different stage. While we were the first exclusively clean beauty retailer in the US with a restricted substances list and consider ourselves far ahead of the curve when it comes to environmental health and justice, we also recognize there’s always so much more we can do. Let’s talk about it. We’re in this together – and we’ll be here to share clean, compassionate products and education with as many people as possible.” – Tara
