While many of us are just waking up to the importance of non-toxic skincare—that what we put on our bodies is just as consequential as what we put in them—Tata Harper was at the forefront of the clean beauty movement. She launched her eponymous line of luxury serums, lotions, and cleansers nearly 15 years ago, and has since inspired a whole new industry of farm-to-face skincare. The beating heart of her clean beauty empire is a 1,200-acre farm in Vermont, where she grows and harvests the organic ingredients used in her Tata Harper products, and where she lives and is raising her three young children: Hunter, Grace, and Tata Mia. The Colombian native invited us onto her magical property to talk inspiration (it’s everywhere), organization (it’s essential), and the entrepreneurial spirit passed down by the women who came before her.
