Deborah Burnes represents the new face of green living—modern, multifaceted, and holistic. As the CEO and co-founder of sumbody, a skincare company dedicated to all-natural, eco-friendly products, Deborah has been profiled in Luxury Spa Finder magazine, which lauds her being “at the forefront of the natural-beauty product revolution”, and for her “commitment to purity” and “responsibly cultivated ‘clean’ ingredients.”
A Native New Yorker, Deborah brings a unique blend of business savvy and approachable warmth to her interactions with everyday consumers, high-powered executives and celebrities, and is considered one of the leading experts on natural skincare. Featured on television shows (such as the Tyra Banks Show, Access Hollywood and NBC’s Wine Country Living), in magazines (including In Style, Lucky, Organic Style, W, Shop Etc. and O, The Oprah Magazine), and in national newspapers and celebrity events like the Academy Awards’ and the Primetime EMMY Awards, Deborah and sumbody have developed thousands of devoted fans.
Deborah combines knowledge of chemistry and biology with a background in cosmetology, natural medicine and environmentalism, plus experience as a model, working mother and beauty-industry insider. She synthesizes a vast amount of knowledge and experience from both the eco-sensitive and conventional sides of the fence, making her not only someone consumers can trust, but with whom they can identify.
