"MY DREAM BECAME A REALITY THROUGH REALLY HARD MOMENTS."
BLESSED: BRINGING PLEASURE, CONTENTMENT, AND GOOD FORTUNE
Researching ingredients is an obsession of Nadine Ramos, Founder and CEO of Lasio Professional Products and Blessed Bananas. Especially basic everyday ones that are readily available in our homes.
One day, while her two beloved sons were devouring one of their favorite snacks, bananas, she was prompted with the thought: What could bananas do for one’s hair? Throughout her research, Nadine discovered that bananas are rich in vitamins A, D & E. Enlightened on the variety of nutrients and benefits contained within bananas outside of regular consumption, she found herself officially swayed on how banana oil could be utilized to achieve healthy, shiny, frizz-free hair. It was at this moment that she felt making pure banana oil a staple in her hair care routine would be a game changer.
However, she hit a roadblock. To her surprise, Nadine found that the market was completely barren of banana oil. She then entertained the thought of purchasing it as a raw material, but even that was not available to her, or anyone for that matter. Nadine being the determined entrepreneur she is, made it her mission from that moment onward to overcome this obstacle. She worked diligently to create a pure, proprietary banana oil blend that passed strict regulatory standards. Her goal was to create a simple an effective product line that was safe for the entire family, and that everyone of all ages and hair types could benefit from. As a result, Blessed Bananas Mommy & Me, Daddy & Me, and Single & Free masks were birthed.
