Letter From The Editrix

The Story of Editrix can be traced back to the summer of 1985. I walked into the periodical room of my local library and discovered the aspirational world of fashion magazines; an instant obsession was born. I was 10 years old and never looked back.

Fast forward many years, I found myself at the apex of my dreams: working as a Beauty Editor for W Magazine in New York City. I reported from the front lines of the wellness industry, I wrote articles on yogis and biohacking fasts, visited far-flung retreats and poured over a ceaseless parade of beauty products that landed on my desk each day. 

At that time, I was forging my own path to holistic wellness through a transformational healer I grew to know. I radically shifted ways of eating, ways of thinking and leaned into my Nepalese roots, rich with Vedic priests and Ayurvedic doctors. I gave away all the free beauty products that lined every inch of my Brooklyn apartment. Suddenly, women stopped me on the street asking me what made my skin glow.

It occurred to me that we are chasing beauty and vitality but ignoring how the ancient and invisible world of the body's microbiome facilitates this quest.

Then,
a moment of magical clarity. 

While visiting my sister at her research lab at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles where she is a pioneering microbiologist on the gut microbiome, it occurred to me that we are chasing beauty and vitality but ignoring how the ancient and invisible world of the body's microbiome facilitates this quest.

I ultimately left the world of editorial but I will forever be an Editrix—no longer reporting on runway trends but editing timeless ingredients and innovating new ways to connect the dots between science and wellness for our common good.

Editrix is the culmination of this philosophy and a knowing that real beauty is a reckoning of health, spirit and science colliding.
