Sisters Sarah Kelly and Leah Robert are the founders of SaltyGirl Boutique and a natural cosmetic line called SaltyGirl Beauty. At age 36 and 32 weeks pregnant, Sarah was diagnosed with stage three triple negative breast cancer, a cancer that is not hormone-driven or linked to her genetics. Following the diagnosis, Sarah and her sister Leah, an oncology nurse, started looking at the food they put into their mouths, as well as the products they put onto their skin. By opening a clean beauty boutique and launching their own cosmetic line, they are sharing clean beauty products, educating on the importance of clean beauty, and giving back to their communities. Through SaltyGirl, they also started a non-profit in which a percentage of everything purchased goes to Foundation4Love, which helps adults dealing with cancer.
