In life, we will each go through trials and circumstances that test us. We then have opportunities to better ourselves and share what we had learned with others. The founding of 4phive was the result of a passion that grew from one of these challenges.
After a long battle, a diagnosis finally came– a dysautonomia disease, effecting the peripheral and autonomic central nervous system. In such a case the first thing doctors do is prescribe drugs to mask the symptoms, none of which helped and made matters worse. After a detox from prescribed drugs and going through a DNA/drug study called pharmocogenonics, it was discovered that my body did not react favorably toward many drugs in the way they had been developed to work. They were not safe, for me. I had to medicate and eat clean. I had to detox my body in an effort to gain health and healing to remedy this disease. I began that process by becoming a medical cannabis patient through the support of my neurologists. The launch of a clean skincare product line was soon to follow.
Early on, I discovered that the cannabis cream I had been using to ease pain associated with scalp dysesthesia– one of the many associated symptoms of this disease– worked wonders! However, it contained menthol which burned, and left behind a grittiness. It simply wasn't scalp/hair friendly. So, I set out to develop my own product, which turned out to be luxuriously potent, complex and gentle. Not only did it ease the neuropathy pain quickly, it also began to restore follicle and hair health. I knew I had to share it. From there we developed 4phive, which led to many additional products in the vein of toxin-free, and infused CBD.
Just as important as the foods we fuel our body with, are the products we put on our skin. For this reason, we focus on using a host of effective and wonderful all-natural ingredients, and as organically grown as possible. We are transparent in that we will always list the percentage of organic, as well, we will always let you know the milligrams of CBD in any given product.
Our Mission: To promote health and wellness in every stage of beauty by providing pure products that fortify inner wellness and enhance outer radiance.
Thank you for spending time getting to know 4phive and our story! While it's a personal story, I know I'm not alone, in that we should all be intentional about the products we use on a daily basis.
