For many years, Rose had worked in the chemical industry as a Sr. Chemical Engineer. For a long time, she noticed that many black cultures depended heavily on the use of harsh chemicals in the beauty care industry.
Rose - CEO/ Midori Family
Her parents being serial entrepreneurs and even with their corporate professional jobs still added ownership of a salon as one of their business ventures. The use of harsh relaxers, and harsh chemical hair products were the norm. It was an issue where no one looked at the impact of these chemicals on scalp and hair care for long term use. Additionally, the act of toning skin with harsh chemicals was rampant in the African culture. She had seen family members, friends, suffer from severe skin and hair issues only to repeat the same pattern of using harsh toxic chemicals. Even with having several doctors in the family who made her aware of lifestyle and health at an early age, the impact of chemical products on health was not vastly discussed. It was almost treated like a secondary situation that had no impact on health. All due to lack of awareness.
Craig always had very sensitive skin. His mother, a former nurse, tried to manage his reactions when he was little. After growing and starting his family, he had come to accept it as a way of life.
