Founder and Herbal Chemist, Julie Longyear
Blissoma is the elegant marriage of herbal form and function, created by the explorative mind of a scientific artist. When right brain meets left the result is botanical innovations that really work. I am proud to bring you the result of nearly a decade of my life's work exploring the healing and enhancing possibilities of plants.
I am formally educated in art and chemistry and have had a voracious appetite for self-education and creation. I now have more than 10 years of experience working with herbs and essential oils. I began this path at age 23 when I graduated from college and had to take care of myself while dealing with debilitating migraines that made it nearly impossible to retain a regular job. I have slowly and steadily retooled my own lifestyle using botanicals to fortify and rebalance myself. I have ingested and applied all manner of plant remedies in my quest for overall wellness. To make the cut into my routines it has to work, and work well. I bring that same mentality to the skincare and botanical products we make.
I have spent hours poring over research and breaking new ground in order to defy contract manufacturer's stock formulations. I am by nature a purist and perfectionist, which has helped create a sophisticated and unique collection of products that proactively heal and enhance your health.
Blissoma is different because our ingredients and our formulas are different. We have chosen to work with a much stricter ingredient palette than even most "natural" brands. An initial feel of our products demonstrates the difference as the texture, color, and smell all distinctly tell the story of the nutritive ingredients contained therein.
The entire line eliminates petrochemical ingredients, parabens, and synthetic colors and fragrances while maintaining a sophisticated feel. We do not use "vegetable emulsifying wax", pthalates, neuropeptides, or other artificial "beauty" chemicals.
Instead we choose active, potent ingredients that are based on nutrients, antioxidants, and advanced phytochemistry. Generally our ingredients are just 1 step away from the original plant material from which they came. We carefully research each of our botanicals to determine their most active principles and then each is extracted and added to our formulas in a way that preserves its most effective medicinal components. All products are 100% natural and almost our entire line is Certified Vegan, packed with certified organic botanicals, bioavailable vitamins, essential fatty acids, and skin-soothing seed oils.
In addition to whole herb extracts some of the products also contain cosmeceutical grade botanical actives like Resveratrol, Grape Seed Proanthocyanidins, and Carbon Dioxide extracts from plants like German Chamomile and Carrot. These ingredients demonstrate Blissoma's dedication to groundbreaking, pure actives from natural sources. New technologies have made it possible to create totally clean, solvent-free extractions and science has proven the efficacy of the nutrient, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory compounds they contain.
You can trust our line because we control all production for all Blissoma products. This ensures the uniqueness of our recipes and the absolute purity of the final product. All ingredients are declared on our labels and nothing is hidden. We manufacture our own herb extracts and even juice fresh organic produce directly from local fields. Everything is made by myself and production manager Frank Wilderspin.
Blissoma products enhance total body wellness, energy, and pleasure in convenient, unique ways that are accessible and sensible to the lifestyles of conscious consumers.
