Drawing inspiration from nature, Bishop Botanicals was founded by a mother-daughter duo, Susan and Nicole Bishop, who sought to create a certified cruelty-free beauty brand that leads with uncomplicated yet effective ingredients. They believe no one should have to compromise their health for the benefit of their skin. Their goal is to help transform skin and hair with plant-powered ingredients acquired from nature. Nourishing yourself with whole botanicals will make you feel good, from soul to skin.
“We sought to create a plant based botanical beauty brand that will help nourish, revitalize and transform your skin, hair and body with uncomplicated ingredients acquired from nature,” explains Susan. Founder and creator, Susan Bishop is a Certified Aromatherapist Holistic Practitioner, Formulator and two time Breast Cancer Survivor. She also served on the Board of The Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists.
Her knowledge and products have helped many people with all kinds of conditions. Her favourite word is ‘Balance’. You must; calm the mind, strengthen the body and empower the spirit.
Nicole Bishop is a Graduate of Concordia University in Montreal with a Fine Arts Degree where she majored in Art History. Following her graduation she has explored many different facets of the Arts. She has produced stage plays, music concerts and short video productions. Nicole grew up loving creativity, art and always felt a very deep connection to the spiritual realm. She firmly believes that channelling creativity is a spiritual experience which was a big part of what led her down her current path as Creative Director.
“New product development and refinement is something very exciting and important to us, we make everything ourselves and it’s critical that we listen to the feedback we get from our customers,” notes Nicole. “Our customers notice a difference when they start using our products and we’re proud to deliver a quality of skin care products that are effective,” she continues. At Bishop Botanicals, they do not add synthetic fragrances, artificial colourants, sulfates, parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, talc or dimethicone to any of their products and all of the products available at Bishops Botanicals are certified cruelty free by PETA and Leaping Bunny.
As far as doing business in Collingwood Downtown, the mother-daughter team couldn’t be more delighted. “It’s wonderful how supportive our small business community really is. Our fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners are our customers and we are theirs. It’s nice to be business owners in your own hometown,” says Nicole.
