Holistic Whole-face Nutrition

Raffaele Ruberto founded Mod.Skin Labs, LLC in 2006. Two years is not long ago, yet seemingly perfect timing for a rather new awareness of conventional personal care product hazards. After all, the certification journey of organic foods was a battle in itself. The debate over whether skin care formulations could hold shelf-life with organic and natural ingredients followed.

Raffaele first studied biochemistry in New York City which led to his fascination over the cosmetic industries’ reliance on synthetic ingredients. He later became a makeup artist where he witnessed the difference in working with healthy and deteriorated skin. As he grew interested in product development, so did his admirers from northeast to south Miami. While his repertoire was wonderful and expanded to celebrities, there was a jolt in his life with illness. Thus, the shift to an organic lifestyle that landed him in Connecticut to develop Mod.Skin™ Labs.

Raffaele proves chemicals are not necessary to preserve formulations. You’ll not find paraben preservatives, phthalates, synthetic detergents, dyes, or fragrances in any of his skin care products. His creations for both men and women are animal cruelty-free and there’s no superfluous packaging. Such an attractive and simple label!

Now about reading ingredient labels, do manufacturers believe the average consumer knows what all of those foreign-sounding potions are? Does the public know how to draw the line between natural and synthetic? It’s a challenge that can make one feel down right stupid, but the Mod.Skin site includes a page titled Ingredient Knowledge. The truth of dangers are revealed there and when you select a Mod.Skin product to view, notice how nice those listed ingredients read in comparison! The daunting task and fear to become a chemist in order to understand components is eased here.

Know that Raffaele supports the Center for Ecosystem Survival (CES), which is dedicated to creating global partnerships for the preservation of biological diversity through global ecosystem protection. He is also passionate about campaigning on behalf of the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA), which is a collaborative and independent not-for-profit organization that conducts a comprehensive HIV health literacy program.

No doubt there is more to admire about Raffaele, but first try his products. Show your thumbs up with a comment. All genders of eco-conscious humans everywhere will appreciate it!

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
