CASSY BURNSIDE, FOUNDER
For years, Cassy practiced the philosophy that a health-conscious diet can improve your life, one meal at a time. This connection between food and well-being led her on a quest to find skincare products developed for the same benefits. To her, feeding your skin is just as important as feeding your appetite — it’s all about healthy, nutritious choices.
When she couldn’t find exactly what she was searching for, Cassy decided to take matters into her own hands by crafting good-for-you products from her own home; and FATCO was born!
Through the company, Cassy brings awareness and education about how small changes in your life can improve your skin as well as your overall health. Tallow and other naturally occurring ingredients are the basis for FATCO’s products — upholding the idea that just like clean dieting, clean hygiene is a sound approach to living well.
An East Coast native, Cassy attended Northeastern University in Boston where she earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She then worked and lived in San Diego for ten years as a Manufacturing Engineer at Autosplice, an automotive manufacturing company. A new opportunity brought her to South Lake Tahoe where she lives and operates FATCO.
“It’s time for us as a people to start makin’ some changes. Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live and let’s change the way we treat each other.” — Tupac Shakur
