Eossi Beauty embraces the power of clean and pure botanicals. Derived from nature, our uniquely effective beauty products are created by two women driven by one purpose: To make life brighter— because we all deserve to feel as good as we look, naturally. Our affordable products are carefully formulated with sustainably sourced and thoroughly vetted ingredients, such as plant-based essential oils and broad-spectrum hemp cannabinoid oil that’s independently lab tested for quality and purity. Every day, our founders Shannon and Rochonne are living the Eossi Beauty ethos: Create your own dynamic energy, cultivate love, and let your beauty shine.

Her experience in cannabis and hemp industry compliance includes a management role in business development for Simplifya, a software firm that provides audit support to protect company licenses and investments.
