We had the good fortune of connecting with Karla Coppel and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Karla, how does your business help the community?
Women all over are buying makeup without knowing that some of the ingredients are harsh chemicals that can cause from short term to long term health problems, from a skin rash to even cancer. So that is why we wanted to bring a line of cosmetics that focuses on bringing sustainability and awareness to women making them hypoallergenic, clean, non toxic safe and healthy products, made with the best quality ingredients. That not only are safe but also act as skin care, It is very important that just like we make healthy choices when it comes to eating, we should also make healthy choices on what products we decide to put on our faces since our skin will absorb everything into our system, just like when you eat. We continuously educate women all over about the dangers a makeup product can cause and advise them to self care by consuming only safe clean products. We also like to encourage women to become Virtuous by giving them advise and information on how to develop their God giving talents, learning what a virtuous women is all about for the greater good of our society and environment. Teaching them that A virtuous woman is a woman of worth and beauty. Though an inner beauty has a priority in the Bible, the Proverbs 31 does not neglect the appearance of a woman. Our motto: “A Virtuous Woman is hard to find. Live to be the Exception!”
What should our readers know about your business?
Well what I love most about the business is that I am able to help, and inspire women to self care and self love, I make sure that the experience they have when they purchase a product from Karemi Cosmetics it is superb, offering each individual the attention they deserve. I am always available for any questions, comments or concerns giving personal customer service, and always going the extra mile. With the help of my husband and my abiding faith, perseverance, determination, and focus. No it is definitely not easy whoever tells you they a have a secret formula for quick success is lying it is not easy and requires much work, endurance and true commitment to continue. Well like I said before abiding faith, prayer for comfort and wisdom, with a constant reminder that there is a greater purpose behind it all. I believe I’ve learned many lessons so far, like developing patience, and learning how to go at my own pace, overcoming fears, and off course believing in myself more. Always maintaining humble to learning more from others also. I want people to know that with God by your side yes you can do whatever it is you put your mind to, even though is not easy God gives you the strength and wisdom to continue. In Karemi Cosmetics It’s a mission about love. We love God, and we demonstrate our love and live out our faith by extending care to others. Because “A Virtuous Woman is hard to find. Live to be the Exception!”
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well I love this city sooo much we would go on a tour to Balboa, La Jolla, Downtown, Coronado Island, restaurants of choice would be eating in Little Italy, trying a little bit of middle eastern places, Mexican authentic food in south SD, some Asian bistros for sure. We definitely be looking into the different historical and cultural places to hang out. Definitely check out: SD zoo, Sea World, Legoland and perhaps.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am a person of great faith and I always recognize God in my achievements, it is through abiding faith and His grace that I am able to accomplish anything I decide to do, also the amazing husband that I have Luis Coppel, whom is very supportive and always helping me and going out of his way to learn new things in order to help me with the business without his love and support, there are many things including this business I know I wouldn’t have been able to do. Me being a single mom for 8yrs before I met my husband, migrated from Tijuana BC MX and needless to say I’ve struggle a lot trying to better my opportunities in the work force for a better quality of life for me and my son whom was little at the time, I must say there was a time when I felt so lonely, without any family here in the US, that I shelter in alcohol, hitting rock bottom, losing everything I worked so hard for. And that is when I came to God, humbling and knowing that I was not gonna be able to do it anymore on my own, and then I met Luis now my husband. The husband I asked God to give me! We have been through a lot of hardship in every area of ours lives, but we have been able to over come with Gods love, being perseverant, not giving up fighting for what we believe in and off course hard work and determination! If we can do it so can YOU…..
