Tracy Rookard created The NakedFace in 2019. It took her a year to develop the line that includes hair/body crèmes and body scrubs that are vegan and organic – no testing of her products was done on animals! She wanted to use body scrubs and crèmes that were "naked" with nothing extra added to them – no GMO (genetically modified organism) and perfume added.
Currently, Tracy is the Chief of Staff, and Strategic Project Officer for Cyber Security, WMATA. In addition, she runs three companies: Baxter Alexander, LLC (The NakedFace and the Chewzy Mask) and Sandy Cooper, Medical Equipment (the Tusk Mask).
