FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - Lauren VanScoy started Essence One to get rid of harmful chemicals in personal care products, but she had a secondary purpose.
She started the company after experiencing post-partum anxiety and depression, and she wanted her business to raise awareness about mental health.
Essence One is a Susan G. Komen Minnseota partner and donates deodorant to that organization. They also choose a mental health organization to donate a portion of profits to.
The Essence One booth at the State Fair is in the West End Market, booth 103 and 104, across from the Nordic Waffle stand. More information can be found on the website.
