LISA NOTO, a woman who inspires well-being
The story of LISA NOTO, founder of LISA NOTO NATURAL COSMETICS, is at once fascinating and inspiring. It arouses the interest of anyone who is drawn by the worlds of modelling, fashion, wellness and entrepreneurship. Her involvement is mainly in projects that aim to protect the environment, including increasing accessibility to urban agriculture that everyone can feel connected to and be inspired by her work.
Partly Italian of origin, Lisa landed her first modeling contract in Italy at the age of 18. This career, which she fell into by chance, allowed her to among other things spend long periods in Japan and New York. Although she never felt that she belonged to the world of fashion, she made connections with makeup artists and through them she discovered an interest in skin care, makeup and natural skincare products.
Physical activity and health have always been a main priority for her, while meditation helped her find balance and led her to study naturopathy. She then learned all she could about anatomy, chemistry, aromatherapy, perfumerie, homeopathy and Ayurveda, a traditional Indian holistic health practice.
Coming from a family of self-taught entrepreneurs with extremely diverse interests, she has launched two businesses over the past 10 years: LISA NOTO NATURAL COSMETICS and TUKUAN, the maker of an eco-responsible overskirt.
In 2013, LISA NOTO had a soft launch that drew attention from the world of fashion and media and by 2014, her official fashion launch show was a standing room only event!
The company which is now expanding into the rest of Canada, the United States and Europe, promotes simplicity, diversity, inclusion and well-being for all.
LISA NOTO's mission is to promote & inspire simplicity and well-being as a lifestyle choice. Through her work, she is trying to raise awareness among women as to the importance of taking care of their health using natural products that are better for your skin and for the environment.

Soldiers of Creation (SOC), born out of necessity, is a socially-conscious social enterprise founded by Amy in 2016. She saw a gap in affordable, customizable, and inclusive services that were available for survivors, and wanted to provide a gender-inclusive, judgment-free space for others to share about their experience, and ultimately gain support and learn about resources to eliminate the feeling of powerlessness.
LISA NOTO is involved with SOC in different ways, through blog posts about self-care, empowerment, meditation, and by devoting herself to different workshops. Visit their website to learn more about the programs and services they offer: soldiersofcreation.ca
