Welcome and thank you so much for being here! My name is Shirley and my heart is filled with happiness and gratitude for being able to do what I love. Let me first thank my parents for exposing me to the world of plants and herbs. Since I was a wee kid, I’ve always seen them gardening or mixing up herbs for skincare or medicine. In retrospect, all things herbal has always been something I loved, but it was buried in the depths of my mind until a few years ago. The desire to know more increased and it felt like I was discovering a part of myself that has been dormant for years.
The increasing love for herbs, and their medicinal properties, served as a catalyst for a dream I had for a long time, which is having my own skincare brand. It was then when I took a step of faith and launched Ineffable Botanical Skincare.
When I was brainstorming about names, my focus was to describe nature’s and humanity’s balance, complexity, self sufficiency, strength and beauty. It doesn’t matter how much words I think I know, words always seem to fail when trying to describe it. Then the name Ineffable made its entrance. Ineffable means: “too great to be expressed in words”. That is exactly what I think about nature, humanity and their relationship. Truly Ineffable!
Ineffable: (Adj) Too great to be expressed or described in words
