Interview With Tata Harper + Giveaway

Goddess Huntress | An Interview With Tata Harper & Giveaway

It is no secret. I love Tata Harper. There is nothing not to love.

Tata Harper Skincare has seamlessly married natural skincare and luxury skincare, formulations bonded in cutting edge technology. Her emphasis on natural technology, probably fueled by her engineering background, has led to the launch of her Supernatural Collection, three anti-aging serums delivering concentrated antioxidants. And guess, what…you see results.

She is shifting the skincare industry.

I had the pleasure to interview Tata and am thrilled to share her insight with you.

GH/ You really have set the benchmark for outstanding clean, luxury skincare.  What influenced you to create Tata Harper Skincare?


TH/ It was all born out of a personal mission to create high-performance, luxurious skincare products that were 100% natural and nontoxic for real. After my stepfather was diagnosed with cancer about ten years ago, my family and I made a decision to go natural and nontoxic wherever possible in our lives, so my search for completely safe replacements for my high-tech antiaging skincare began, and I came up empty handed. Everything I found during my search was a combination of natural and synthetic; no one had created an antiaging line that delivered results without a single synthetic chemical ingredient. I was sure it could be done, and I was sure there were other women like myself who were searching for beauty without compromise, so the journey began. The line took five years to formulate and a team of eight European chemists; we started from scratch instead of buying formula bases like most skincare companies. We stayed true to our goals of creating skincare that really works with zero synthetics, and now that the world is catching on to the importance of safety in skincare, labs around the world are discovering amazing new active ingredients. It’s an exciting world to be a part of!

GH/ You are also one of the first pioneers to fuse advanced science + technology with completely natural skincare formulations, I bet your chemists and biologists must have a ball in the labs. Any exciting/surprising discoveries you can share?

TH/ We’re discovering new things all the time! I always have a stack of scientific articles with me from labs around the world that are investing in natural technology. Our product creation process is a little different than that of most beauty companies; first, we start with a product function – like, what do we need this product to do? For what skintype? And then we look for the most amazing natural ingredient technology that can deliver the result we want, with research that proves that it works. We don’t start with a price point – we create the most efficacious product possible, and then see what we’ve got. It’s a fun process! As for exciting discoveries, those are top secret :) but we are working on a body lotion for the spring, as well as a new aromatherapy treatment!

Goddess Huntress | Tata Harper Vermont Farm

GH/ Also unique, is that a great amount of your ingredients are actually grown on your organic 1200 acre farm, Julius Kingdom Farm! Is it a breath of fresh air to have quality control of your ingredients in your backyard?

TH/ It’s definitely an amazing part of the business; it gives us a lot of control over the quality and also means there’s a little bit of our Vermont home in each bottle. It helps us keep the carbon footprint of the business lower, too, since we’re at least supplying fifteen ingredients from our own farm every year, so there’s less to ship around the world. Plus, we are certain we can trust that they’re grown sustainably, since our farm is certified Organic. If we could, we’d love to source everything locally, but the rest of our ingredients come from all around the world – Israel, Crete, the Amazon, Canada, Poland, etc. The ingredients are amazingly powerful and have incredible stories, so we love that our formulas are both global and local.

GH/ You grew up in Colombia and trained as an engineer there.  Were you the least bit interested about beauty as a little girl or did that develop later on?

TH/ I’ve been someone who loved to buy and experience new types of skincare and beauty products since I was a young girl, which is an interest that came from spending a lot of time with my grandmother, mother and sisters doing beauty rituals together on the weekends. Making exfoliating masks, creating creams and oils to use on our skin – we spent mostSaturday mornings together just beautifying. So I’ve always loved skincare, and it’s always been important to me to take care of my skin and have good preventative antiaging habits – but I had no plans on entering the beauty business until much later.

GH/ Lastly…we all have our naughty indulgences…mine are wine and french fries. What would you say is yours? (no worries, we won’t judge!)

TH/ I definitely indulge in sweet snacks throughout the day – mostly chocolate. I have a major sweet tooth!

And now Tata and I have a gift for you! We are giving away a bundle of my four favorite Tata Harper Skincare products to one lucky GH reader! Valued over $430
