Episode 3 with Julie Longyear, founder of Blissoma


My guest today is Julie, founder of Blissoma - raw, herbal, revolutionary skincare line.

Julie is an herbal chemist and a student of life as she describes herself, “organic beauty expert, artist, free spirit, gardener and always evolving, as you would hear during our conversation.

As a purist and perfectionist by nature, Julie has chosen to work with a much stricter ingredient palette than even most "natural" brands. And that should be no surprise since Blissoma is a brand we offer at Reina Organics.

The result is a sophisticated, unique, and potent collection of products that proactively heal skin and enhance health.

Talking to Julie is always a pleasure - she's ingredient and skincare savvy and I always learn something from her.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Being a “student of life”
  • The radical act of being comfortable in your own skin
  • The use of the term “anti-ageing” in the beauty industry
  • And so much more

    What was the most useful thing you learned from my conversation with Julie?
