BEAUTY THROUGH INNOVATION
The family business, founded in the mid-1950s, is pharmaceuticals, with an emphasis on nutritional supplements and probiotics. Rose and her daughters, Linda and Allison, have had a lifelong commitment to well-being and overall health. Living in the sunny South, all three understand that proper skin care is an essential aspect of everyday life. In 2013 they became business partners creating the groundbreaking probiotic-based skincare company – BeBe & Bella, LLC.
Research is still uncovering the full potential of probiotics. For centuries, Japanese and other cultures have consumed yogurt for its beneficial effects; essentially, it contains these microorganisms that we call probiotics. It is well established that they balance intestinal flora and improve digestive health. There is evidence that probiotics enhance the quality of the skin and brain function. Allison, in her role as CEO of the pharmaceutical company, was auditing the growing and harvesting of the patented probiotic strain. Allison, an innovator at heart, was curious to have the probiotic components tested to see if they possessed any hidden benefits for new applications. Based on in-vivo testing, her hunch was proven correct as the probiotics were identified as having remarkable skin restorative attributes.
The idea was sparked to harness the full potential of the probiotics and their components as the basis of a skincare regimen…and BeBe & Bella was born! As a crucial element, BeBe & Bella includes probiotic supplements as part of its skincare regimen. Beauty truly does start from within, and the balanced internal health of a person will be reflected in a luminous complexion.
The merging of Allison’s two young daughters’ names, BeBe and Isabella, was the inspiration for creating the brand name BeBe & Bella skincare.
