CHESTERVILLE — Young business owner Olivia Salmon recently collected a $3,000 ‘Summer Company’ grant from the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.

The North Dundas District High School student and Chesterville resident operates Natural Beauty — offering a wide range of natural-ingredient skin-care products from bath bombs, to face masks, lotions and body scrubs.

“My products are environmentally friendly,” says the Grade 9 student.

“All of my packaging and containers are reusable so customers can return and have them refilled.”

Through the summer months, Salmon sells her line of products at the Morrisburg Farmers’ Market (Fridays), Chesterville Farmers’ Market (Saturdays), and the Winchester Farmer’s Market (Sundays).
