About Bodyceuticals' Founder
Angelique Macris Saffle is the president and founder of Bodyceuticals Calendula Skincare, Carnation, WA.
Angelique’s passion for organic bodycare began in the 80’s, when she and her mother co-founded Nature’s Marketplace Nutrition, a health food store in North Bend, Washington. “During the 20 years of experience in the Natural Products Industry, I studied herbs and nutrition. I was mentored by an aromatherapist and other amazing teachers including my father, an organic farmer who grew grapes in his homeland, Greece. Eventually I began formulating products I wanted to use on my own skin, because often times I just couldn’t find the nutrient-dense ingredients in bodycare that I was personally looking for. That’s how bodyceuticals was born.”
Angelique originally founded bodyceuticals with a focus on using the calendula flower in bodycare products. She grew the business organically, making products for herself and sharing them with friends and family. She successfully expanded her business to achieve nationwide distribution, with happy repeat health food retailers, spas and individual followers throughout the United States. The bodyceuticals team now includes herbalists and formulators along with an education and customer service team to support retailers on a national level.
Bodyceuticals now has their own organic calendula fields at the base of a beautiful mountain in the pristine Snoqualmie Valley. Here they grow and harvest the antioxidant-rich calendula flowers that they put in their products. “Getting back to my family’s farming roots is personally rewarding and something we are very proud of. It’s a blessing to offer these amazing flowers in some way to our customers. Through the years, I have personally witnessed some incredible experiences from “flower power”! We are grateful for the bodyceuticals family and it’s an honor every time someone shares a success story with us about our products. With God’s grace, we’ll continue to help make a difference in people’s lives as well as help our planet.”
Angelique is a Pacific Northwest native, and currently resides in Washington with her husband Mark and family.
