Latest act of kindness: I drove my boyfriend to work at 4:45am this morning so that he wouldn't have to take an Uber. 

My story: It all started while I was living in a women's shelter at 21. It was the impact of peoples' kindness that allowed me to dream big and build this company based on kind values to encourage everyone to do the right thing even when no one is looking. 

Originally launched in 2014 in Vancouver, Canada as Evelyn Iona, a small batch, organic collection of natural and organic makeup. Evelyn Iona had a focus of empowering women while being good for our skin, planet and community. The name came from two women who live these ethos, Melanie Evelyn Tremblay and me, Brandi Iona Leifso, which then got shortened to Evio when we launched our second and third collections in 2019, Evio Beauty & Evio Skin and spanned to empower EVERYONE.
