The newly re-launched collection will celebrate the elemental beauty of the company’s Santa Fe, New Mexico home with a proprietary blend of oils and minerals.

The new line will capture the best of both worlds to deliver unparalleled skincare benefits to women, marrying the best of nature with the latest scientific advancements for skin benefits at any age.
“Whether designing athletic shoes or skincare, I am passionate about giving women pure solutions to help them live their most beautiful, healthy life,” Poe added.
