JTG#58 Aminah Sagoe Founder Emmaus
*Special announcement about the podcast*
Hi, I’m Caroline Dalia Kaliani, Functional Nutrition Practitioner, Herbal Medicine Mama & formulator of a botanical skincare line for rosacea.
A few years ago, I launched this free educational platform called Journey to Glow.
The goal? To explore natural, holistic and effective solutions for skin “issues”.
In my quest to share the effectiveness of natural medicine, I interviewed over 75+ holistic skin experts (Functional Medicine Practitioners, Naturopathic NDs, Holistic Nutritionists, Integrative Dermatologists, and Ayurvedic doctors…) as well as dozens of womxn who fully healed rosacea.
The Journey To Glow podcast reached over 100,000 listeners and received hundreds of 5 stars reviews in 30 different countries. But the best part? Were the weekly emails from listeners and readers who shared they have regained hope that they could heal their skin!
After years of making the episodes available for free on mainstream podcast platforms, we are now rethinking how we want this information to be accessed.
If you’d like to be notified of the next steps, sign up for the Glowletter at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for listening and for being on the journey with us!
JTG#58 Aminah Sagoe Founder Emmaus
Aminah was motivated to start her own skincare brand after struggling with various skin problems, mostly related to sensitivity, inflammation, oily T-zone, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, and acne breakouts.
With countless products available on the market, (many with high price tags) all claiming to work effectively, she found it expensive and tedious sifting through different products trying to find “the one”.
This is when she set out to start educating herself about the key ingredients used in skincare products – some active and beneficial, while others are straight out harmful. Her search led her to discover how each ingredient works on different skin types and concerns along with how to safely incorporate them into formulations to produce effective results and ensure their efficacy.
In this episode Aminah shares:
- The turning point in her skin’s “acting out” and finding a simple yet natural solution to her acne
- How her brand Emmaus came from trial and error (and the need to find high performance, natural products)
- The role of gut health and probiotics in healing a skin condition
- Fiding the right balance between natural and high performance ingredients that deliver results
If you’ve enjoyed this interview, you will love episode #31 with Katie Stewart on clearing cystic acne.
Side note, I have Amina to thank for discovering and adding Vitaminc C to my skincare regimen! I was initially hesitant to try, I thought it wouldn’t work with a rosacea-prone skin and it would aggravate the redness but it was the opposite actually… Just a few days using her serum, my skin was brighter and more luminous!
