Meet our Founder

Cynthia Ransom, ND Traditional Naturopath

Our founder and potion master is Cynthia Ransom, a Traditional Naturopath from Minnesota. With an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Cynthia returned to school 17 yrs later to earn her Doctorate in Naturopathy and Masters degree at the Academy of Bio-Energetics. Her passion for holistic health was a catalyst in starting Good Karma Skincare. Understanding what goes ‘on’ your body also goes ‘in’ your body, she wanted to create a line of products that were targeted to Anti-Aging, being truly natural and non-toxic. “Too many companies use ‘natural’ as a marketing tool, it really has no legal meaning. We make products that are therapeutic in nature, unrefined oils that have not been stripped of their nutrients, vitamins, herbs and other natural ingredients to restore your skin the way nature intended.” 

As important as Good Karma’s products are, the business plan had to be equally holistic. Good Karma Skincare is following in the footsteps of Newman’s Own, using their business model to benefit charities with the profits made. Her heart goes out to the animals of the planet, thus GKS’s first charitable program, “Beauty feeds the Beast™” was born.

Cynthia has closed the doors to her private practice, however her passion for wellness lives on in her book, The Blue Sheep Movement, which hits the shelves November 2018. Using stories from her practice, Cynthia bridges the gap between traditional medicine and holistic healthcare, opening up a world of choices to create and maintain health. She is also a columnist for Her Voice magazine, a quarterly publication in Northern Minnesota.  Cynthia is happy to be back in her hometown of Brainerd, Minnesota with her husband Scott and three furry four legged children.
