Kingston’s CLN+DRTY skincare takes an all-natural approach


KINGSTON — Paula Hoss’s life is all about balance. 

On any given day she is a mom to 6-year-old Juniper and 4-year-old Rowan; an owner of chickens, an entrepreneur helping women feel good in their skin; and the leader of a 12,000-plus online community celebrating mental health, natural wellness and authenticity. 

Hoss, 37, is five years into owning and operating a Kingston-based business that produces all-natural skin care like oils, face masks and spot treatments.

She supports finding alternatives to chemically-enhanced products and is vocal about her desire to clean up her life — from what she puts in her body to the products in her home. But she’s also treated chronic migraines with cosmetic Botox, tried every over-the-counter acne remedy under the sun and isn’t afraid to use a little bleach and Lysol when nothing else will do. 

It’s in that kind of balance that Hoss, owner of the CLN + DRTY, says she’s found her sweet spot.

Paula Hoss, founder and CEO of the CLN+DRTY line of organic skincare.

“It’s all about figuring out what works for you and your family,” Hoss said. “I think there is a lot of pressure out there saying ‘If you’re going to do natural — do it all the way.’ I did feel a lot of pressure, and I kind of had to come to my own realization that I can have a natural skin care line and also use conventional diapers instead of cloth on my children.”
