The idea of Star Card Self-Care was born during Libra season in September 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. It evolved during a time when many searched for work/life balance, broad improvement, and self-care. A metaphysically-themed brand, Star Card Self-Care was created to inspire people to embark on their individual Fool’s Journey to self-actualization, self-care, and self-love with effective and suitably named products. Star Card is a feel-good brand that strives to make the world a better place by helping our consumers feel their best both internally and externally, producing simple and non-harmful formulas, promoting knowledge of spirituality and tarot, and reducing our environmental impact with sustainable packaging. Our products are vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate and paraben-free, precisely chosen, effective, and aim to provide a luxurious, spa-like experience.
I am a free-spirit, Speech-Language Pathologist, lover of learning and an Aquarius, the astrological sign which Star Card Self-Care is named after, as the Star Card in the traditional Rider-Waite tarot deck represents the sign of Aquarius. I carry long-standing passions for tarot, astrology, numerology, healing crystals, and animal symbolism. While living in Louisiana for college, I experienced an exposure to spirituality that influenced my interest in learning tarot. As my spirituality deepened, my passion for understanding tarot became an integral part of my life and blossomed into what is now the root of Star Card Self-Care. Star Card Self-Care was created through the guidance of the cards—in fact, several aspects of the Star Card brand have been inspired by the cards’ directions. Not only did working as a healthcare provider in hospitals and nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic greatly impact my mental and emotional health, wearing face masks significantly affected the health of my skin and contributed to ongoing breakouts I suffered from for years. I wanted to provide skincare and other self-soothing products that pamper both the skin and one’s inner being through simple and effective products. I fundamentally believe in the importance of reminding people to pamper themselves inside and out and to indulge in self-care through the messages on the bottles.
At Star Card Self-Care, both our brand and packaging send a powerful message of love and care for both the environment and humanity.
