Hello from Barbara MacFarlane/SB Sentient Beauty LLC
I became a mother at the age of 47 and it was the most transformative experience of my life. The world around me was transformed and renewed and my vision for the future renewed. Motherhood took me out of myself and gave me to another. The other in this world to which I devote everything that I am. I know that she watches me, and captures the essence of who I am and what I do so I want her to receive only the best that I am. SB Sentient Beauty is my gift to my daughter showing her that through her own hard work, creativity, power and love she can build a life for herself that is her own, and that when shared with those she loves will show them too. For her and for me, I hope you'll join our journey and see how much even a little of your time will help cultivate this shop into a livelihood that we can love living.
My vision for my shop comes from my belief in living holistically with sentient beings, on our beautiful planet in ways that protect our world and it's inhabitants by using compassionate means for producing and delivering products to my customers. Our collections enable you to use cosmetics and skincare that are vegan and cruelty free with delivery options, such as Shop Pay, that help us to plant trees by that reduce your delivery impact. The trees we plant will capture enough CO₂ in their lifetime to offset Shop Pay deliveries.
I'm a native of New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment and have traveled way beyond there and back again. How SB Sentient Beauty LLC originated is a story about inspiration and resourcefulness. Motherhood is my biggest honor in life. Through my entrepreneurship I hope to teach my daughter that she can be anything she desires through her own vision, power, creativity and hard work.
My education is in Liberal Arts/Dance/Writing having performed in New York, throughout New Mexico and with the New Mexico Ballet Company. As a lover of fine and performing arts and in creating everyday I was honored to portray one of my favorite artists Georgia O'Keefe in the documentary Bone Wind Fire. NFB "This Emmy-nominated feature film is an intimate and evocative journey into the hearts, minds and eyes of Georgia O’Keeffe, Emily Carr and Frida Kahlo - 3 of the 20th century’s most remarkable artists. The film uses the women’s own words, taken from their letters and diaries, to reveal 3 individual creative processes in all their subtle and fascinating variety."
