Shannon Vaughn, Pursoma founder, transitioned into wellness after suffering from a major health crisis, which led her down the path of self-care to heal her mind and body. Shannon started traveling the world studying the science of detox, Ayurvedic medicine and yogic philosophy at some of the most prestigious alternative medicine institutions in the world. Inspired, Shannon continued to explore the effects of detoxification via the skin, until she formulated the Pursoma beauty wellness treatments. Today, Shannon leads the beauty wellness movement behind “digital minimalism” and “digital detox,” and continues to seek out ingredients that advance the effectiveness of her products. She lives with her family in New York City and Maryland, where she owns a working farm on the Chesapeake Bay and runs Pursoma’s operations.
