Our Story

I wanted to create a skincare brand that was efficacious, without compromising on sustainability, aesthetics or price.


After spending a lot of time researching ingredients and designing packaging myself (from a spare room), I teamed up with a group of experienced formulators to engineer a set of products that utilised modern advancements in beauty science whilst going back to basics with circular glass and aluminium packaging.

After a few (substantial) setbacks, I’m proud to say we've managed to achieve 100% fragrance-free / vegan formulations, without silicones or potentially irritating preservatives whilst delivering results and maintaining the reliability of our circular packaging.

This is a self-funded start-up - no seed investments or big cosmetic crop backing. I'd like to thank my family and friends for helping make it a reality... and doing the odd spot of modelling.

We’re a tiny brand but as we grow we aspire to innovate, disrupt and provide more products I’m proud to put my name to. Watch this space.
