Hello and welcome to the Unfiltered Vegan family!
My name is Georgiana and I'm the co-founder of this amazing brand!
Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself and why I am extremely passionate about our amazing and eco-friendly new brand. The best way to do that is to take you back to my childhood.
My childhood was a simple, happy place surrounded by nature and an abundance of home grown organic fruit and veg. Autumn was one of my favourite seasons because it was the time of year when my Grandparents would take me to harvest fruit and vegetables and forage for sea-buckthorn, rosehip and other medicinal plants. Every morning my Grandma would give us honey mixed with ground sea-buckthorn to help our immune system fight off colds and flus and for the normal function of our bones and skin.
Unfortunately, my childhood lifestyle changed when I started college. Like most youngsters I wanted to have a great time with my friends and alcohol, fast foods and coffee became my new lifestyle. I had completely forgotten to feed my body with much needed vitamins and minerals like I used to.
As a result I put on a lot of weight, unhappy with myself and lacked energy and motivation. I was stuck in a cycle of trying out dangerous diets, counting calories and very often starving myself just so I could lose a few pounds.
In November 2018 I become vegan and was the best decision I've ever made. I incorporated my old friend sea-buckthorn powder into my plant based diet and what a difference it's made to my skin, hair and overall health. I have also learned about and introduced natural organic products such as Camu-Camu, Maca and Baobab powder which are nutrient dense to help boost my digestive system and overall health and I am absolutely amazed by the enormous benefits all these superfoods have provided.
My life is so much healthier now, but most importantly HAPPIER. Loving yourself and taking great care of yourself is the best thing you can ever learn to do. It takes effort but I’ve learnt to value my myself enough to put my health first and you can do it too! So, my partner and I created Unfiltered Vegan with a single goal – to help you transition into a healthier lifestyle and discover the amazing benefits nature has to offer. Essential nutrients and micronutrients are extremely important for our bodies, whether you are vegan, vegetarian or meat eater.
We invest huge amounts of money in face and body creams, serums and everything else. But what most people don’t know is that the secret to looking good on the outside is to take great care of yourself on the inside.
We live in a hectic world, we all have busy lives and time is very precious but with Unfiltered Vegan products you can get all the goodness the body needs at home, at work or on the go.
