My name is Paradise Rodriguez-Bordeaux, and I'm the founder and CEO of Artémis Beauty™ of The Artémis Collections™. I started the line while I am still studying at university not because I felt the world needed yet another cosmetics line, but as a necessity for a consistent skin problem.
I am an ovarian cancer warrior, who refuses to allow it to slow me down. I have earned a pageant title every year since 2014. I have been professionally modeling since I was 16, I am a stage/film actress and professional dancer. I sought out the most affordable to the most expensive brands. Still, my face would look like pizza. It never failed that after the day’s makeup was washed off, my skin was horribly suffering; it didn’t help that I had a terrible habit of nitpicking at every pimple that would arise. I realized that I was having a horrible reaction to the ingredients of the makeup. I decided that I really needed to research what I was putting on my face. It wasn’t long before videos of animal testing flooded my screen. You can only imagine the array of health issues that come with cancer, and now I had to deal with my makeup destroying my face and environment? ...I think not!
I tossed the lot and started my clean beauty journey but was very dissatisfied by the options on the market. I’ve yet to understand why we ever really needed to test on animals, but I digress. Since I’ve never been the type to just complain about a problem, I knew I needed to be the one that would create a luxury quality vegan line that was diverse, high-performance, sustainable, and still affordable.
My female-operated business is based in New York and Paris.
I am honored to be able to present these lines to you knowing that 1/3 of our profits are returned back into the communities to aid in the fights against domestic violence and human trafficking, but also to help fund our “Beauty, Brain, and Business” and “I Can Be Both” scholarships for women-owned small businesses.
