Robbin Turner founded Violet Botanical Skincare in 2016 on the principles of honor, tradition, love, and simple ingredients that put Mother Earth first. Prior to the launch of her company, Robbin drew inspiration from her grandmother’s homemade remedies. She leaned on her master’s in education, immersing herself in African herbalism, ancient Egyptian aromatherapy, Southern folk herbalism, and modern-day herbalism. Her knowledge is awe-inspiring.
We love our skin. We spend every day with it. Our skin knows us and we take precious care of it. We love skin so much, we named ourselves after it. We didn’t pick our name nonchalantly. As with our soft sheets and pillowcases, there is purpose behind our brand. Nollapelli is derived from the Finnish word for “love” and pellis is the Latin word for “skin.”
It has been a full year of Beyond the Sheets in this series, we chatted with colleagues of our founder and CEO Allison Howard about sleep and skin. These experts are wellness industry innovators and trendsetters. We learned a lot, which is the understatement of the year.
