the Team

Rebecca Story, MA
Founder & CEO

Rebecca graduated from UC Berkeley with a major she created, Women’s Health & Sexuality and completed her Master’s in Sexuality Studies where she studied women’s sexual health. For 10 years after that, she consulted with start-ups to develop products and lead clinical trials for indications including: sexual arousal and desire, sexual satisfaction, infertility, cervical cancer and breast cancer. 

However, after researching the links between toxic ingredients and women’s health for so many years, she decided it was time to do something to promote healthy products and hold companies accountable for the ingredients they put in intimate care products.  She started the Bloomi to empower women to only use products that are healthy for their vulvas and vaginas. The company provides research-based #sexhealth articles and a platform to shop for 100% nontoxic products.
