Caroline’s Dream

Caroline’s Dream is named for my paternal grandmother. She loved medicinal plants and simple home arts and Caroline is my inspiration for these natural, effective products. My grandmother’s affinity for herbal remedies and gardening inspired the company’s all-natural approach, Caroline’s Dream is dedicated to creating the highest-quality products with the purest ingredients available. This means the Caroline’s Dream works hard to source ingredients from sustainable suppliers and to create products in small batches to ensure each meets a standard of excellence.

I started making skincare products almost 20 years ago when I became tired of spreading chemicals into my dry, sensitive, acne prone skin. I researched ingredients and methods, eventually formulating a line of products that effectively addressed a variety of skin issues.

Caroline’s Dream products utilize the natural, healing powers of such ingredients as expeller-pressed sweet almond oil and cold-pressed coconut and extra virgin olive oils, in addition to unrefined shea and cocoa butters. Along with Vermont-local beeswax from Dancing Bee Gardens and homemade oil infusions made with organic herbs, the decadent salves and creams that emerge from the Caroline’s Dream headquarters are wholesome and gentle, but potent. Why? Because skin is the largest organ in the human body. The quality of what we apply to the surface of our skin is just as important as the quality of the food we consume. This philosophy is reflected in the ingredients used in Carolines Dream.

Everything I do with Caroline’s Dream is purposeful, including not charging customers hundreds of dollars per jar. It is simply not necessary and I want you to enjoy using these products as much as I enjoy making them for you!

Caroline’s Dream Products include:

Lavender + Sandlewood Cream, Deodorant, Lavender + Geranium Cream, Calendula Cream, Super Skin Salve, Relief Salve, Peppermint Forest Foot Cream, Peppermint Lip Balm, Sweet Orange Lip Balm

That pretty lady on the left is my grandmother, Caroline. Her love of medicinal plants and home arts inspired me to make my first moisture cream. My business model reflects my time at UVM, love of bicycling and years working in Vermont, especially when I managed a Ben & Jerry's.

The "Ben & Jerry's Effect" of Environmental and Social Responsibility are a big part of my daily operations. From carefully sourced packaging & ingredients to my small batch manufacturing practices to a new cargo bike company vehicle (Caroline's Cruiser) to engaging my community by partnering with others who share my mission of Health & Wellness

I started Caroline's Dream because I couldn't find any chemical-free products that worked on my sensitive, acne prone skin. So I mixed my love of science, herbal training and college degree to create an effective & delightful to use line of products. Skin is the largest organ in the human body, the quality of what we apply to the surface of our bodies is just as important as the quality of the food we consume.

I am an avid bicyclist, yogini and local elected official. I really enjoy empowering people (especially women) to see themselves as strong community participants and leaders of our world. Celebrate your strengths, but remember - health and wellness are key to living a joyful life!




carolines dream certified paleo skincare










About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
