In 2014 Kaelen launched her line of passion since the early nineties has been seeking out truly natural products. As a result of this long time desire, in 2014 Kaelen’s vision came to fruition in the release of her own organic line, Kaelen Harwell. Her goal is to increase awareness of ecological responsibility and holistic approaches to health and well-being. This and the need for a quality Aesthetics school led her to open Pure Aesthetics.
