Welcome to “Ideal Finds” at World Wise Beauty where beauty, health & wellness connoisseurs can learn about products and brands that are authentic and true to the ideals they are inspired by. Sometimes we label people by their professions such as business man/woman, or entrepreneur. Other broader labels we throw around are words like “capitalist” and “socialist”. We sometimes forget we are human beings first and often driven by ourcultural and social values. I hope at “Ideal Finds” you discover social values and capitalism can both be celebrated. There are many hard-working entrepreneurs out there infusing social ideals into their business concepts and attempting to make our world a better place. Perfect introduction to our featured Ideal Find “SpaRitual”. ~Truly Herself, Lauroly
