Natural beauty is Ryley’s passion. She graduated from a cosmetology school out of Atlanta in January of 2016 and quickly realized how toxic the products we use daily really are for our skin and hair. She has always been conscious about using organic or more natural products but it truly became a passion that strengthened through beauty school coupled with the arrival of her daughter the following year. Later in 2016, she started a skincare and beauty line (Thistle Organic Beauty) making products that were cruelty free, non toxic and plant based. Though Ryley loves creating, she recently decided to take a break from selling and start sharing her secrets + love for clean, cruelty free indie skincare and beauty through her blog, Thistle Beauty.
