Several years ago, Rose-Marie began to experience some health issues that were causing many problems physically, mentally and emotionally. After an extensive series of tests, she learned that her blood contained toxic levels of heavy metals including aluminum, barium, cadmium, lead and mercury as well as high levels of pesticides and other chemicals.
Rose-Marie was surprised when the technician asked if she worked in the cosmetics industry. Until then she had no idea that cosmetics could contribute to serious health issues. After years of rebuilding her own health, Rose-Marie realized that she wanted to help other women claim their right to healthy beauty. To achieve this goal she created RMS Beauty, her acclaimed line of organic color cosmetics.
Rose-Marie is an outspoken advocate for women protecting themselves from the toxic chemicals found in products they use on their bodies daily. She created the website www.beautytruth.com to dispel beauty myths and expose some of the dangers of personal care products. Rose-Marie's story and her product line have both been included in No More Dirty Looks by Siobhan O'Connor and Alexandra Spunt and Eco-Sex by Stephanie Iris Weiss. She also contributed natural beauty tips and insight to the book Living Beauty: Feel Great, Look Fabulous & Live Well by Lisa Petty. She is frequently interviewed for health and beauty publications and is quickly becoming a popular guest on radio and television programs. Rose-Marie continues to work in the fashion industry and using RMS Beauty products on some of the world's most famous faces.
