Its been quite a journey so far - Julie and I met over seven years ago and after she discovered I loved making formulations and facecreams, a plan was hatched to launch our own company - Dr Julie's medical qualifications in anti-aging integrative medicine, coupled with my Chemistry PHD - we're quite a team.
People are really interested in ingredient source stories and knowing that we wade through the thousands of ingredients out there to select only the most potent and natural bioactives for our facemasks. I'm a Cosmetic Chemist so its easy for me to easily understand what each ingredient means.
I also have a teenage daughter who suffers from acne, so I'm very lucky I can work on products which keep her face as clear as possible - its hard because she doesn't use them every day even when I go on about how important it is, but the charcoal mask and glycolic cleanser have cleared up her skin a great deal. She just did an eight week detox facemask challenge and the results are amazing!!
I'm planning a trip to Tasmania next to year to check out where our superstar ingredient, Fucoidan extract is sourced - keep an eye out for our blogs its an amazing ingredient.
We've launched two products and my focus is already on the next products - we have a 20% glycolic cleanser ready to go as well as a 20% zinc daywear - this acts as a primer under makeup, provides protection from the sun and is a moisuriser all in one - its very exciting. These will be manufactured on the Gold Coast so I'll be travelling there as well - I'd love to show you the process of how we source and manufacture our products.
I'm super keen to keep everything local - our products are designed and manufactured in Australia - using local suppliers for our packaging and ingredients - something I'm quite passionate about.
