ALICIA READ, FOUNDER  Beauty has literally saved my life. Professionally it has been a space where I could carve out both an income and a solid reputation, saving me from the clutches of poverty and depression when I was a single mom nearly crippled by very dark days. Personally, choosing to look for beauty in everyone and everything has saved my heart, affording me a strength I didn't know I had to never give up on myself, on my dreams, on others. KALOSOPHIE was created to help others bring more beauty into our world; today I stand beside  stunning women who I call my friends and colleagues. We are a team, united in a mission to make life beautiful. I am so grateful.

 AGATA BIENIAS, CO-FOUNDER  I have been obsessed with beauty since I can remember. When I was 10 I would take the long way to school just so I could stop at our local pharmacy to apply forbidden eyeliner with testers; in the 5th grade my parents discovered my stash of makeup samples and tried everything to redirect me. It didn't work! Beauty has always been a part of my core, whether taking care of my skin and my body or wearing colours to enhance my natural beauty and express my creativity. I am entranced with textures and formulations, scents and ingredients. I love the way beauty makes me feel: powerful, vibrant, blissful. This is why I love working in beauty: we're here to help others feel good. Beauty rules.
