Irene Falcone is the founder and CEO of Nourished Life. A store that provides sustainable, eco-friendly, and natural personal care, beauty & lifestyle products — all backed by substantiated information. Winner of the 2016 Telstra Business Women’s NSW Entrepreneur Award, Irene leads the toxin-free beauty and eco-friendly space.
After spending 18 years in advertising, with 10 of those years in senior marketing roles for the world’s largest brands, Irene took a leap of faith and swapped the glamour of the movie industry for a warehouse, a forklift and team of local mums. Irene created Nourished Life with just $100 in October 2012 and grew it to a $20m+ business in just 4 years. As a 100% owner, she is responsible for all management decisions from creative direction to financial planning.
Nourished Life springs from Irene’s passion to help women shop with confidence for healthier beauty and lifestyle products. Nourished life closes the gap between ‘health’ and ‘beauty’ by sifting through the mixed messages on labels and confusion in the marketplace. Nourished Life brings together an extensive range of comprehensively researched, affordable, eco-friendly products that are good for us and good for our planet.
Irene’s sound reputation as a trusted natural beauty trail-blazer is supported by advisory positions with several industry bodies and her role as the exclusive Australian distributor for 100% Pure, one of the most sustainable and innovative personal care brands in the world.
