Growing up in Kenya, Evelyne Nyairo was immersed in a culture of stark gender inequality that conditioned young women to believe that expectation and privilege differed between men and women. Despite this, she developed an admiration for the resilience and grace of the women within her community. Their quiet strength coupled with their beautiful, healthy skin became a foundation of beauty for Evelyne that she knew she wanted to share.
Inspired by her daughter, Eliana, her rich heritage, and her passion for the environment, natural beauty and healthy living, Evelyne set out to help create a world where every woman has the opportunity to embrace and own her strength and beauty inside and out.
Ellie Bianca is a proudly Canadian, all-natural, environmentally sustainable, socially conscious skin care line that recognizes beauty in all forms and supports the empowerment of women through business and education. Ellie Bianca is the embodiment of Evelyne’s life’s work as an Environmental Scientist / Chemist, African-Canadian woman, and proud mother, and was established as a means to make an important difference that is powerful and sustainable.
