Our Founders Story

“I fell in love with skincare as a makeup artist. I loved how I could totally transform skin from looking tired, stressed and dull to healthy & glowing and also how it impacted a person's confidence. Models would love sitting in my chair because they knew they would be taken care of not only with their skin but also emotionally as I love making people feel good and nurtured. It's from my love of the combination of helping someone feel confident, wanting skincare that helped stressed out skin and that would work on my sensitive skin, that I launched the brand.

It was only when I trained as a make-up artist and then started beauty blogging that I really started to learn about skin. I learnt how good skin meant more confidence but also I have learnt that fully accepting yourself and loving the skin you are in is so important.”

Why is CBD so great for skincare?

Anti-Acne – CBD has been shown to minimize sebum production and normalize an overactive sebaceous gland, resulting in less oily skin and reduced clogged pores. Anti-inflammatory – CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties are great for reducing puffiness, redness, and calming the skin. Moisturizing - The fatty acids found in CBD (that’s still in an oil form) include omega-6 and gamma-linolenic acid which facilitate moisturization. Antioxidant - CBD’s antioxidant properties can help protect against free radicals in the environment, which is great for preventing fine lines and wrinkles. * These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
