Ms. Evelyne Nyairo, M.Sc., P.Biol.

About the speaker

Growing up in Kenya, Evelyne was immersed in a culture of stark gender inequality that conditioned young women to believe that expectation and privilege differed between men and women. Despite this, she developed an admiration for the resilience and grace of the women within her community. Their quiet strength coupled with their beautiful, healthy skin became a foundation of beauty for Evelyne that she knew she wanted to share.

Inspired by her daughter, Eliana, her rich heritage, and her passion for the environment, natural beauty and healthy living, Evelyne set out to help create a world where every woman has the opportunity to embrace and own her strength and beauty inside and out.

Evelyne has personally developed authentic connections with producers through her 15+ years of working globally in Environmental and Social Sustainability, and Stakeholder Engagement. Spending much of her professional experience in Africa, Europe, and North America, has allowed her to develop key relationships for sourcing natural, sustainable, and ethical ingredients of the highest quality.

It was through these connections that Evelyne observed the process of harvesting raw shea from the land and recognized the opportunity for an eco-friendly, naturally nourishing ingredient that also supported the women who were manually harvesting and processing this resource.

Ellie Bianca is the embodiment of Evelyne’s life’s work as an Environmental Scientist / Chemist, African-Canadian woman, and proud mother, and was established as a means to make an important difference that is powerful and sustainable.

What do nearly every illness and ailment have in common? Answer: Abnormal gut bacteria.

Whether you are struggling to overcome illness or simply want to enjoy greater energy and immunity, balancing your microbiome is the foundation where it all begins. Join us at Nature’s Emporium and learn various approaches to optimize your good bacteria. Start your New Beginnings today!

Host: Kitty Cates For years Kitty’s immune and digestive problems had her in and out of hospitals and doctor’s offices. Her search for healing eventually led her to work with Canada’s largest natural health book publisher/distributor. Her experience in publishing and touring cross-country with authors and pioneers in alternative medicine enabled her to gain many insights into the foundations of wellness. Currently, she continues to empower people through education. She does lectures on the microbiome and is a product educator with Olie Naturals.
