What you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your body. Your skin is your largest organ and absorbs chemical into your bloodstream within seconds! Don’t fret, Denver-based, luxury, clean beauty boutique, AILLEA, has opened up in Raleigh, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina! With two locations based in Denver, Colorado and one in Atlanta, Georgia, AILLEA’s founder and owner, Kathryn Murray Dickinson, has made it her mission to bring clean beauty to cities throughout the country that currently do not have as many options as other locations do. AILLEA will have you changing the way you approach your beauty regimens with their clean, non-toxic beauty products, including skincare, makeup, supplements and bath & body. AILLEA strives to educate you on the importance of clean beauty and by housing a wide array of non-toxic brands, AILLEA takes all the guess work out of cleaning up your beauty routine. Every product that AILLEA offers has been tested by the owner personally and is free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals and endocrine disrupters.
Kathryn Murray Dickinson, a long-time executive in the beauty industry, has worked with some of the most successful beauty and fashion brands in the world. Driven to clean beauty when she developed severe allergies herself later in life, she was shocked to find the amount of poor performing products in the beauty industry. Determoned to become the industry expert in safe ingredients with effective and high performing products, Dickinson has now spent years doing extensive research on ingredients, regulations and brands. After thorough vetting, Dickinson finally found products that met her standards on all fronts and started AILLEA.
AILLEA’s Raleigh location in Cameron Village, was a natural choice when selecting one of the new locations because it currently does not have a tremendous amount of clean beauty options. Raleigh is also consistently being named as one of the best places to live (I just moved here)! The people are warm, friendly, progressive and actively engaged in their community. Located at 344 King Street, in the heart of the historic King Street district of Charleston, Charleston was also an obvious pick for an AILLEA location because the city is near and dear to Dickinson as she spent holidays in the city growing up.
With a clean, modern and bright aesthetic, AILLEA’s stores are absolutely beautiful. The experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly staff specialize in make-up artistry, clean beauty and skincare and all of AILLEA’s coveted clean, trusted beauty brands will be offered at the new Charleston and Raleigh locations, including Kjaer Weis, May Lindstrom, ILIA, Kypris, Indie Lee, Josh Rosebrook, Vintner’s Daughter, Agent Nateur, Vapour Beauty, Osmia Organics, Honest Hazel, Maya Chia, Battington Lashes, Moon Juice, Kosas, Evelyn Iona and more. In addition to offering the best of the best in clean beauty brands, the new AILLEA locations will also offer in-house beauty services, including facials and brow services. Dickinson is also curating a spa menu for both new locations and is excited to also bring these services in-house and to continue educating the public on the importance of clean, non-toxic beauty.
