Torrian Denise, CEO, Creator and Founder of DorNee’ Natural Body Luxuries was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. After attending Ohio and Shaw Universities, she fulfilled her dream of being an entrepreneur in 1993 by opening Polished Image Nail Studio in Cleveland Heights, as she served as Proprietor and Managing Nail Technician for over 10 years.
Always on a quest to find products that would moisturize her clients hands and feet, Torrian was introduced to raw shea butter and began to create recipes for foot butters for Christmas gifts. The gifts went over so well that the clients began to request to purchase them.
In 2004 Torrian’s mother was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. While going through chemotherapy, she began having extremely dry skin from the medicine and treatments. Torrian would have her use a raw shea butter concoction she made and it played a major role in restoring the lost moisture and elasticity in her skin. This allowed her to maintain a sense of normalcy, for her mother was known for her natural beauty.
Throughout Torrian’s mother’s illness, they began and continued to see the difference the natural products made on her skin, thus leading Torrian to further research natural ingredients and their benefits. “When my mother took her last breath, I felt like I took my first breath at a continued chance for blessing others with natural products.” With much prayer, DorNee’ (which is a combination of the word adore and my mother’s name Renee’) was born.
Torrian’s mission and commitment is to only use fairly traded and the finest of natural ingredients in the products on the DorNee’ Line. Torrian is also committed to being an advocate for Pancreatic Cancer Research. The DorNee’ Line contributes to the American Cancer Society in the name of Torrian’s mother, Renee’ Antionette.
