Episode 14: Marie Doctorchik, And the Color Green: The Intersection of Intuition and Science in Green Beauty Blogging

Today I’m in conversation with my Maui-based beauty blogging colleague and friend, Marie from And the Color Green. An RN by training and an intrepid advocate for green beauty, Marie and I start to unpack some of the dynamics surrounding the aggressive backlash against the alternative (organic/eco/green) beauty movement. Marie also discusses her beauty blogging origin story, the face mask subscription box she ran for several years, and how her multidimensional interests guide her content creation.
