Karim Orange, aka That Girl Orange, is a nationally known natural cosmetics expert, celebrity personal care products artist and two-time Emmy Award nominee. Karim’s work has graced the faces of countless stars in television, music, movies and theater. However what makes Karim Orange a unique force in the cosmetics arena is her role as a make-up activist. Hailed by ELLE magazine as a "Green Star," she is currently an video host for About.com. She has also earned a substantial following for her Huffington Post lifestyle blog, her work for Organic Spa Magazine and Your Beauty Advisor.
One of the most respected pioneers in the beauty industry, she is leading the charge for increasing transparency in personal care product ingredients. She advocates more choices for real women who presently sacrifice beauty for fear of harmful chemicals and additives. It was Karim’s own experience that spurred her quest: Shocked by a violent reaction to an everyday product, she began learning about cosmetic ingredients in order to fully understand the dangerous effects that chemicals and unnecessary additives can have on our bodies.
By explaining ingredients, determining what’s safe and what’s not, Karim assists women in keeping healthy products in their beauty routine as she suggests non-toxic and natural alternatives in cosmetic products as well as lifestyle choices. She lives what she teaches studying urban farming and growing many of her own favorite natural ingredients.
Check out my new adventure to How I Tri'd. This is virtual scrapbook, about a very typical in and out of shape 40-year-old woman (me) who is repurposing, reevaluating and recharging her life while training for The New York City Triathlon. The site is not just about me training for this journey (how boring that would be for the next seven months). Some weeks I will interview fitness professionals, and some weeks athletes. Other weeks I will discuss nutrition, and how to prevent injuries. Some weeks I will share enlightenment, and other weeks I will just bitch! All around I will make this a real-life experience while sharing information. Please visit: www.howitrid.com
