LANSDALE, Pa. --A Montgomery County woman has created her own line of skin care that she says is both organic and healing.
Everyone knows Candy St. Martine-Pack simply as Chef Candy.
She is whipping up all these concoctions which are homemade, green, organic, good for you and of course made with a lot of love.
Candy calls her company Green Street Luxuries and it all began as a way to help her son.
"My youngest son, who's now 24, was born with all three forms of eczema. They wanted to start him on steroids and as soon as I read the complications of steroids, I wouldn't put it on myself let alone an infant," she said.
She thought there has to be a natural way to cure ezcema. That's how her first product After Shower Extra Moisturizing Cream was born.
"This is the cream that actually cured my son as well as changing his diet," said Candy.
In just two years, she transformed her business from a tiny 350 square foot location to her full service shop and spa.
And Chef Candy makes everything in-house at her Landsale location.
"This is my kitchen/lab where we make and label all of our products," she said.
She has products for everything from eczema, to psoriasis and anti-aging.
"People who've gone through modern medicine and come in here as their last resort, people who have no self-esteem - they've lost all hope and they've seen seven, eight, ten years of traditional medicine. And, in most cases, if they follow my protocol I can have them healed anywhere completely 4 to 8 weeks," said Candy.
She also makes body scrubs, soaps and lotions.
"So the coconut scrub, what I decided to make an exfoliating coconut oil so you're doing both you're exfoliating and using it as a moisturizer," she said.
