ELAINE SAYS: If you have a business of your own, you know how much passion it takes to create something special and get it out there. If you're a working parent, you've fantasized about a flexible [and successful] career that affords you both creative challenges and time on the soccer field and if you're a dreamer, you believe that all those things are possible as long as you do what you love, do it with purpose and do it well. Enter Tata Harper
. Using her Industrial Engineering degree [yeah...that's right] to fuel her quest to find a pure approach to skin care,Tata has turned her 1200 acre farm in Middlebury, Vermont [where she lives with her husband, 3 kids and lots of fresh air] into the epicenter of Organic Skin Care....And in the process, has also turned herself into the secret weapon to beauty darlings like Gwyneth Paltrow and Julianne Moore. Combining organic ingredients she grows herself, with those she sources from around the world, Tata creates non-toxic, proprietary formulas...in other words, none of her base formulas are purchased [I honestly never even thought about that before] and all of her potions are natural. Curious? We thought you might be.

A Note From Tata...
"I love having the home base for my business and my life here in the Champlain Valley of Vermont - so many wonderful and unique cultural experiences to be had, whether on a day trip to the lake or going antiquing in neighboring towns. However, I'm often in New York or traveling around the country for work and I love picking up new ideas for lifestyle or wellness products, toys for the kids or just everyday handy items from the people I meet. Here's a list of some of my favorite recent finds, as well as some truly special Vermont places that everyone should try to see if they visit." Tata Harper
