Grace Lee is the founder and CEO of Nine Naturals, a line of all-natural haircare and skincare for pregnancy and beyond. Grace believes personal care products should make you beautiful without harming you or your children. A devoted mother and wife, Grace was a vice president working on Wall Street when she learned about the health risk posed by chemicals contained in beauty products. Disappointed by "natural" products that were either not as pure as they claimed to be or simply didn't perform well, she founded Nine Naturals. She has since dedicated her life to creating chemical-free, high-performing products for women and educating mothers about the potential risks of environmental toxins. Grace lives in NYC with her husband, and her daughters, Charlotte, Frances, and Madeleine.
