Maria Valentino is a cutting-edge formulator and leader of Green Beauty & Wellness for conscious consumers. Utilizing her platform of over 1 Million fans via social media, she empowers her audience through education centered around herbalism [plant-based healing] and the Endocannabinoid system – while creating a one-of-a-kind, luxury experience.
“I have set a new industry standard with products that help people become the best, healthiest version of themselves.”
After family members became very sick with life threatening injuries and illness,
Maria soon uncovered the many other phenomenal effects of Cannabinoids, and how they can be directly absorbed in targeted areas through transdermal delivery, thus benefiting the entire body.
Her Cannabis research continued into many focus group studies, and she has been involved in all steps of cultivation from seed to extraction. As a Pennsylvania native, the mushroom capital of the world, Maria fell in love with mycology very early on, and also incorporates key fungi into formulations, diet and her everyday life.
Maria spends more than half of the year living in the remote jungle of Costa Rica researching and growing natural healing plants, and her intimiate understanding is evident in each patent-protected formulation. Her goal as an advocate is to remove the stigma by spreading this incredible knowledge.
“Billions of people are unaware of the serious damage caused by harmful products they purchase and use every single day. The skin is the largest organ of the body, so it became clear to me that the world needed an alternative to not only look and feel amazing, but help to heal them from the outside-in.”
In late 2019, she expanded her line with ingestible products for Optimal Wellness Support.
Additionally, Maria has collaborated on international campaigns with industry leading luxury brands, studied opera and classical voice for ten years, she has walked the runway as the final look in both LA & NY Fashion Week shows, is a first degree black belt in karate, competed on the Women’s United States Dragon boat racing team, sponsored JetSurf athlete, and an accomplished artist.
