Meet Samantha Dickey of Dirty Beauty in Woodstock

Today we’d like to introduce you to Samantha Dickey.

Samantha, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I love beauty products + makeup + spas so when I learned the term, NATURAL BEAUTY, I was immediately drawn to the fact that my grandparents grew some of the ingredients I learned were a part of natural skin care. I am inspired by my family’s rich history and farming. And with my skill set in Lab science + manufacturing, launching Dirty Beauty is a natural fit!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road has started as an unpaved path. A peeking through the trees. Seeing a destination of plant-based high-performance designer skin care and cosmetics is where we are constantly seeking become more and more a part of. Struggles include learning about the myriad of dynamic formula ingredients and how they interact with both each other and the surface of the skin.

Constant research and development coupled with sales and marketing. Package design and manufacturing and distribution. Bringing skill and art to every part of the supply chain is constant and constantly changing. The struggles and challenges required to persist and get ahead of the toil is what synthesizes innovation and positive impact!

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Dirty Beauty – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Our company draws inspiration from our history of family farming. And we have a love engineering, science, and technology. We develop skincare and cosmetics at the beautiful intersection of these two planes. We are known for ‘staying as close to the ground/farmer as possible.’ We thrive on using plant materials from our region and transforming them into high-performance skincare and cosmetics that is both backed by science and stunning to behold.

We are farm to face. However, we are really Farm to Lab/Science to Face. We check in with technology and prove our beauty methods of action. And we LOVE pretty packaging that treats the earth gently.

We are very proud of our commitment to enriching the futures of our youth with our STEM Beauty Camps and Curriculum. I am happy to say that I am a Discover E Girl Day Role Model. We suggest STEM fields as higher education and career path for both girls and boys.

On our STEM Beauty Camp website, we offer DIY Beauty Making Kits for individuals. We also have a site exclusively for Educators and Youth Group Leaders that offers tools to increase awareness of the possibilities in STEM to girls ages 7 to 17.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Our plans for the future include more research, more development, more innovative and groundbreaking beauty formulas produced with unexpected plant materials and cutting-edge lab created ingredients to achieve the amazing complexions we crave.

It is our continual goal to demonstrate the glamorous beauty that results at the union of farming and science!
