DollyMoo is a natural beauty brand located in the heart of Northern New Jersey. It was created by two fabulous ladies Nicole (Nicci) and Amy. Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Nicole Silva about this amazingly underrated beauty brand and here is what she had to say…
(Q) Tell me a little more about the DollyMoo brand…
DollyMoo is handmade skincare products made by sister and I. We carefully select the finest ingredients. Everything is hand blended in small batches with lots of and good energy!
(Q) When you created this brand, what influenced you to do so?
I had always worked in the restaurant business. I worked as a high end bartender and was constantly surrounded by talented chefs. At the time, I was working at a little organic restaurant. I started to become more aware of what I was putting in and on my body. There is a great art in marrying taste, touch, and aesthetics-to taste good, look good, smell good and most importantly make people feel good. This inspired me to make my first lavender body scrub.
(Q) What are your most popular products? Tell me a little more about your best sellers…
This is a tough one! The rosehip facial serum is a popular one! Our coconut body scrub seem to be a favorite and the body oils are extremely popular. At first, some people are weirded out about using oil on their skin. We’re trying to educate people about the benefits of using oil. It’s pure nutrients and truly hydrates. Once people try it, they are hooked!
(Q) The rosehip facial serum seems like quite the serum. Tell me a little more about this product…
Ahhhh, the beauty of rosehip. I first started making this serum for myself. I was so scared to start making products for the face. My sister and experimented and experimented and finally came up with a blend of oils we love. Rosehip is extremely hydrating. It’s high in vitamin C & E. It’s known to help with age spots, fine lines, rosacea and dry damaged skin. We love it! I personally use it everyday as my moisturizer. So far, the response has been amazing and we couldn’t be happier about it!
(Q) Aside from the official website, where can one purchase Dolly Moo cosmetics?
Right now we have a few local boutiques and yoga studios in the Montclair, New Jersey area that carry us. A yoga studio in Beaumont, Texas and an awesome boutique in Tennessee. Little by little we are growing and it seems to be going at the perfect pace for us.
(Q) Since you are a cruelty-free company and embrace the concept, I have to ask, what is your stance on animal cruelty?
For our company, we test on loving, (yet brutally) honest friends and family. We use such simple ingredients and we’d never want to hurt a poor innocent animal. I’d rather burn my own skin and find out that way!
(Q) Tell me a little more about your blog…
Right now our blog is used more for current events and happenings. In the future we hope to add more to it. Health tips, recipes and more! Besides Facebook and Twitter, we are very active on Instagram. We’re a very visual company so we just find instagram to be so fun!
(Q) For those women who are interested in natural cosmetics or those who are looking to use natural cosmetics, what advice do you have for them?
Less is more. We promise. xo
