Founder Andrea Carter is a stickler for quality, so much so that when she was having trouble finding all-natural beauty products, she used an old maxim – “if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself.” With this in mind, she set out to find the best ingredients the world has to offer and developing them into premium products of the highest quality.
Andrea and Larry's mission is to elevate and empower others thru their work with other organizations in the community. We're all able to achieve great things with a mindset of "anything is possible with determination and perseverance", even when things look gloomy there is always sunshine on the other side. Surrounding yourself with positive people who lift you up and vice versa is the key to unlocking your potential.
LaDrea stands for teamwork, tenacity, strength, and community – all of which has inspired the brand’s mission, and also stands for the encouraging message of celebrating life and living every day - “Inspire, Empower, and Elevate.” Take a look at our products or stop into our store at Bridge Park!
The LaDrea Story
For 26 years of marriage, LaDrea founder Andrea Carter and her husband Larry have celebrated every day together like it was their wedding day. The couple is proud to be able to offer you an amazing line of spa quality all-natural bath & body products free from harmful chemicals and ingredients. Growing up, Andrea was driven to make sure she was not going to be a statistic – and despite her many challenges during childhood, she had her eye toward bigger things on the horizon. She graduated from high school at the age of 16, and went on to earn her Bachelors’ Degree in Fashion Technology. After graduating at 16 Andrea set out to accomplish her list of goals: Get her drivers license, get a car, graduate from college, get married, and build a house, all of which led to the creation of LaDrea.
Even after her childhood there were obstacles to overcome for Andrea and her family, particularly when she was diagnosed with sepsis in 2015, right as her business was getting off the ground. She and Larry worked together to get her back on her feet, and she now has her beautiful new store in Bridge Park.
“LaDrea” speaks to her commitment to her marriage ‘La’ is Larry and ‘Drea’ is Andrea, together making their dream come true by bringing you a wonderful line of spa quality all natural products.
