Meet Carla and Monsi of VitaVibe in Coral Gables

Today we’d like to introduce you to VitaVibe. Carla & Monsi share their story below.

We are a mother and daughter who changed our lifestyle and created VitaVie as a new alternative to natural skin care. We started with a few private events and now we are honored to have our own VitaVie facial available at “The Beauty Fairie”, a licensed aesthetician in Coconut Grove. We are also being featured in Markets for Makers and West Elm Local. We look forward to the future as over the next few months we will also be available at a wellness spa in Steamboat Springs, CO and a boutique hotel in South Carolina.

Monsi:
I started my search for a better well being in England over 30 years ago, where I was introduced to essential oils and fell madly in love with them. That’s when I began my holistic journey. It’s been an inspiration and passion in my life. The best part is now being able to experience this with my daughter. When she started changing her lifestyle and we started working together, we realized we found a way to share what we love with others.

Carla:
When I started looking for natural alternatives, I went to my mother who is an expert on healthy living. She handcrafted skin care products for me and I was so impressed with the way they made me feel and the improvement in my skin that we wanted to share this with more people and began creating. Together we launched VitaVie for the people like us who are looking for natural, sustainable, cruelty-free, organic, nontoxic products that work.

Has it been a smooth road?
The trial and error were a little challenging. It was definitely fun! We spent almost a year testing different ingredients before creating our final products for sale. It took a lot of time to find the correct carrier oils and essential oils and building relationships with companies we trust. Not all essential oils are created equal and a lot of thought went into the process of finding the right companies and the best ingredients that are organic, cruelty-free, sustainable and natural. We care about our ingredients, consumers, the environment and the products we create here at VitaVie.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the VitaVie story. Tell us more about the business.
At VitaVie, we specialize in high quality, natural, organic, and vegan skin care products. The essential oils we use are carefully selected to uplift and calm you. We love our positive messages which are made to inspire self-care and self-love.

It’s great to be part of this natural lifestyle. We are so proud to offer the natural skin care products that we had been looking for. The outcome of positive feedback and praise from consumers has been overwhelming in the best way.

We care about the environment and use sustainable packaging. We have been fortunate enough to be able to donate proceeds to Common Threads, Lotus House and soon, to the Avela Foundation.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We are excited about the change we are already seeing in the world of skincare and beauty products. Every day, there are more options for natural alternatives. We vote with our wallets every time we make a purchase and we are looking forward to seeing the change that we can all make together.
