Palermo Body is a collection of truly natural skin care products made by hand in small batches by founder Jessica Morelli. Each product is consciously formulated by choosing every ingredient with purpose, and mindfulness of its benefits to your skin and effect on the environment. Each product is made and packaged with attention and style in Brooklyn, New York.
The philosophy behind Palermo Body began with Jessica's Nonna Vincenza. She lived her entire life based on the foundation of natural holistic living while ingraining this value and tradition on Jessica. She taught Jessica the importance of cooking with the freshest ingredients, how to garden, and how to use natural remedies for bumps, burns and beauty.
Years later, Jessica began creating products inspired by her Nonna; each product would be truly natural without exception. It only seemed fitting to tribute the business to her Nonna by naming it Palermo Body, after the city where her grandmother was born.
Palermo Body is the culmination of all things Jessica lives and loves. From creating unique formulas, beautifully designed packaging, to being environmentally conscious of where ingredients are scoured. Palermo Body celebrates the vibrancy, color and purity in the life around us.
Jessica is originally a west coast native but has been living in New York City for the past five years. She began making her products in December of 2008 and knew she was on to something special. A crafty hands on person by nature, her interests range far and wide but at the center of it all is natural skin care.
