Hi, I'm Angela. Lover of emojis and exclamation points! 😊

After a life of traveling, getting married, more traveling, raising two great kids as well as rescue pugs and cats, I decided in March of 2010 it was time to fulfill my dream of running my own business and so I took the plunge into the entrepreneurial world. Having creative interests in a lot of different areas and wanting a business name that reflected that, I came up with the name farragio. It's a play on the word farrago, which means "a mix of things."

My business started out as a sewing business making custom totes and personalized embroidered toiletry bags that were very popular as bridal party gifts, and I was even featured in St. Louis publications where I was living at the time.

As rewarding as it all was, around 2017 I found that I was getting burned out and wanted to take farragio in a different direction. For a number of years while running my sewing business I had been making an all-natural face moisturizer for me and my daughter and when, on a whim, I shared it with family and friends Christmas of 2017, the response was so enthusiastic I knew right away what direction I wanted to go and my line of farragio all-natural skincare products was off and running.

As I've listened to my customers' skincare needs and continually done research, I have expanded from my original face moisturizer into a line of skincare products that are made with superior formulas that are low-to-none on the comedogenic scale. It is my goal to create skincare that is compatible with multiple skin types.
But the most important part of my business is the personal connections I've made with my customers that have made taking that plunge into the entrepreneurial world so much more rewarding.
