Natalia Zatarian joins the ranks of Los Altos business owners with the opening of EarthBeauty Apothecary at 271 State St. An esthetician by trade, Zatarian sells several lines of organic, cruelty-free wellness and beauty products.

For the past two years, Natalia Zatarian dreamed of opening a natural wellness and beauty store. She didn’t think, however, that it would happen so soon – as in last week.

Zatarian, a 26-year-old esthetician and makeup artist, opened EarthBeauty Apothecary at 271 State St. Friday, offering body, hair care and lifestyle products she said are organic, cruelty-free and “as chemical-free as possible.”
