Ctrl.Alt.Delete Skincare & Soaperie

All-Natural Bath & Body Products

Our journey in life takes us many places as well as through both the good moments and the not-so-good. When my journey brought me the huge challenge of an auto-immune disorder attacking my joints as well as my skin, I had to do everything I could to fight back.

For me, eliminating as many unhealthy chemicals out of my life as I could was a saving grace, but a sad loss in the skincare department. But then, finding I could still have those special little luxuries by hand crafting them, AND lessen the impact the auto-immune disorder had on my system…hello joy!!  And the best part is that not only do they make my skin feel sensational and nourished, but being able to now share them with others is an absolute blessing. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be part of your journey.

Constantly learning about the wide variety of potential natural components for each handcrafted soap, skincare, or haircare product, and choosing those ingredients with thoughtful care gives me the opportunity to really understand and consider what I’m putting on my skin and embedding into my life. And subsequently what we are able to offer to you!

At Ctrl.Alt.Delete, you’ll find phthalate and paraben free natural products designed with heart-filled intent to be deeply luxurious enrichments for not just your skin, but your life.  Elevate the senses, and enhance your natural gorgeous YOU.

Let’s take this life’s journey together…I want to hear your story, too. Whether your challenge is great or small, a moment, or a constant. Start with something as simple as loving your skin again, and #rebootyourself today.

I get asked why I do what I do just about every day.  My answer is: my daughters. Simple as that.  

As a single mother for 13 years, I learned there is no example out there for my children that could be better than the example I have the opportunity to set for them to experience.  Some days it’s incredibly hard to even get out of bed with the ups and downs of my auto-immune disorder. Some days it’s hard to focus. But being their mom is my primary job AND joy in life…and being the best mom I can be.

I will never be perfect nor always have the right answer…but to offer them the lessons of grace, unconditional love, strength, courage, tenacity, forgiveness, stretching one’s boundaries and paradigm, and just simply “doing it, even when it’s hard” is something for which I will always strive.

Today’s world is incredibly tech driven and isolating, even while it purports to reach out and embrace more.  I hope to encourage my girls to choose differently, to choose better. To get back to basics, to choose the simple yet incredibly important things in life.  To “reboot themselves” from the inside out and be the voice of beauty and calm inside all the chaos. It takes just one choice, just one moment, to plant a mustard seed.
