How we got started
Becoming a mother was a great time in my life, it changed everything including my skin. It had always been sensitive yet now, the things that used to work were no longer effective. As I searched for a solution I had two main criteria, first it had to be completely chemical free. The combination of sensitive skin and new motherhood meant anything with harsh chemicals or synthetic ingredients were a definite no. The second criteria was it had to be affordable, after all baby’s are expensive. After months of trying brand after brand, I decided the best thing to do would be start from scratch.
Once I had a formula that worked for me it didnt take long for family and friends to notice. Thats when I decided to take my personal journey public. Today I am proud to have created something that can work for everyone.
Ingredients Chosen with Care
It all started with a bar of African black soap. It was the first thing that I had found that didn’t irritate my skin. Although it worked on its own I was curious to see if it could be improved upon. That’s when I got to mixing it with a variety of herbs and flowers until we arrived at the blends we offer today. After much trial and error, we have found these blends to be the most effective for you most common skin issues.
As we deliberated on which herbs, flowers and plant oils to use we focused on two criteria. First it must be sustainable. There is no need in building a brand with ingredients that will destroy the environment. It’s actually counter intuitive. Second, it must be gentle to the skin. Let’s face it (pun intended), not everything in nature is kind to the skin and when you have sensitive skin, even popular ingredients can cause a problem. Our goal is to create products that are gentle and effective no matter who uses them.
Simplicity at its Finest
We could fill our jars with a whole bunch of ingredients, half of which you will never remember, but why? We believe you should not need a Phd or an hour of free time to read our ingredients list. For that reason, we keep it simple. A few key ingredients that are capable of doing all of the heavy lifting which we spent a lot of time testing to make sure they work. (Dont wory we do all of our testing on humans, mostly friends and family)
We also believe that your skin care routine should be equally as simple. A few products, carefully designed to give you the results you desire. In the end, we just want to make being beautiful a little bit easier.
This is who we are. This is why we are. This is skincare, simplified.
