Mineral Makeup US: Gourmet Body Treats


Gourmet Body Treats was founded in 1998 by Waleska Agosto for one very simple reason. She had a sensitive skin condition called Rosacea and was unable to use any kind of beauty product. Frustrated and tired of skin irritations and complications caused by chemical-filled beauty products, she began making her own. Using her knowledge of herbs gained from her parents and grandmother.

Today Gourmet Body Treats has grown quite a bit. We’re still a family owned business that continues to make products the old fashion way – one small batch at a time. To ensure the highest quality possible Gourmet Body Treats only uses wildcrafted or organically grown raw materials. Every product is made by hand from start to finish including the packaging and labeling of each product.

Every product is 100% vegan, never tested on animals, and has no negative environmental impact. Gourmet Body Treats has one simple goal – create effective skincare and cosmetics without harming the environment and helping your skin. Our Mission is to use our business to effect positive change in this world.

Their mission:

  1. Always be natural and organic.
  2. Always source ingredients from local farmers whenever possible.
  3. Always remain Vegan, and never test on animals.
  4. Always consider the Earth. From our manufacturing facility to our retail locations. Green is good!
  5. Always treat our customers like family, because we’re a family owned business.
