Local boss babe Nadine Joseph created Peak and Valley after working at a lab studying the neuroscience of stress. After incorporating several adaptogens like reishi mushroom and ashwagandha into daily smoothies and tonics, she realized it was helping her stress and anxiety levels. She now incorporates the adaptogens into products that provide inclusive, science-backed, and honest developments to the world of wellness.

French Girl

French Girl is shockingly not a French company. The Seattle-based beauty brand focuses on face, hair, bath and body, and lip products. The female-made company believes in the power of self-care and conscious consumption while offering quality products at a reasonable price range. Their products can be found at major stores like Anthropologie, as well as at smaller local shops. Products can be purchased online or in-store at select retailers.
