NATURAL EARTH COSMETICS
Michaela Hald is a master soap maker, international entrepreneur and founder of Natural Earth Cosmetics. Michaela took her first soap making class two decades ago, and since has developed a life-long interest in herbs, dried flowers, healing plants, health and beauty products. Michaela was living in Germany working real estate at the time and came to Las Vegas, Nevada to visit friends. Inspired to follow her dreams, she left Germany in 2012 and opened her first business in Las Vegas. What began as a hobby has turned into a successful eco-friendly business. Natural Earth Cosmetics is inspired by nature to create high quality, uniquely handcrafted bath and body products.
I met Micha in 2015 when I stopped into her retail location at Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas. When I walked in, I quickly admired all of the lovely products. I commented on the packaging as you could see that someone really took pride in the appearance of the products. Working in the retail industry for many years, I appreciate that. From that day on, Micha and I built a partnership and I have had the opportunity to represent Natural Earth the last few years. I admire Micha’s dedication to her brand, and for following her dreams to come to the U.S to pursue them. Natural Earth just launched in Francesca’s Boutiques, and will be launching in Kirkland’s Home in May. For more information on Michaela’s journey, read the full interview below!
