About Adriana Green
After experiencing symptoms of malfunction of my endocrine system such as asthma, gluten intolerance, unexplained weight gain, lack of energy, digestive problems and a chronic cough, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease. In order to regain control of my body, I changed my life. I started to really look at what I was putting in my body which led to me finally looking closely at the ingredient lists of my beauty products.
All my life, I've been obsessed with beauty products and I realized that a large portion of toxins had accumulated in my body via cosmetics, skincare, hair color, and other beauty products. I felt a huge sense of betrayal by the beauty industry as I found harmful chemicals in even the high end stuff I had been using.
I started studying the amazing qualities of botanicals (getting certified) and began formulating products. These products were more effective than the products I had been using and that is how ESTELI BODY came to be.
Before I knew what the name of my brand would be, I knew that my mission was to formulate effective natural skincare using botanicals, clays and minerals that Earth provides.
When I thought of when my skin felt the most beautiful was when I made a trip to my mother's homeland of Nicaragua. The tropical air, the gorgeous greenery, the plentiful fruits, the warm sunshine and the relaxed persona of the people I met there seemed to have an amazing effect on my skin. It was the first time I felt comfortable without wearing makeup.
In Nicaragua, there is a town called Estelí where there is a nature preserve called, Miraflor, which literally translates to Look the flower, or Flower View. It is so fertile with plant life that there are 200 species of orchids in the reserve. This memory of gorgeous, healthy glowing skin and beautiful flowers and plants are the inspiration for ESTELI BODY.
