Ingredient #9: Parabens. A common preservative molecule with four ester (*sigh* chemistry, ester = acid + alcohol) variations -- methlyparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben butylparaben.

Our Skin, Our Culture

We were unsatisfied with the culture around beauty and skincare. So we carved out a space in response to what we’ve all been having “conversations” about. 

Culture is best defined by the people who claim it.

Our newsletter is

... nerdy
We’re scientists who get turned on by citations, fall into research rabbit holes and write about what we find. Beware, nerdiness is contagious.
... ingredient-focused
Our content focuses on the  ingredients in products we use. We let you be the jury. We’re not into gavels, but a frilly collar can elevate.
... loud-mouthed
Our voice can’t be muted; we speak without compromise and with lots of exclamation marks!!! Sugar coating is not our strong suit, but we do love glitter.
… collaborative
We don’t claim to know everything, so we bring in experts to fill in the gaps. Besides, who doesn’t love talking to cool people?

Hyaluronic Acid

What it is: Chemically speaking, it is a polysaccharide (a.k.a. sugar) that attracts water. It’s a natural component of the bone fluid that your body makes — the lubricant that allows you to bend your elbows and do squats on leg day.

What it does: Topical Hyaluronic acid creates layer above your skin that allows it to trap moisture. Research shows that it has the ability to protect against oxygen-free radicals (think UVs), giving it anti-aging properties. It is also good for treating burns, healing wounds, treating osteoarthritis and more.

Lactobacillus

What it is: A commensal (hey girlfriend!) group of rod-shaped bacteria that naturally occur in the gut and on the skin.

What it does: Reduces the appearance of acne lesions, as well as sebum production which leads to acne eruptions.

We’re formulating products with your skin in mind.

We are a community of skincare junkies, nerds, diverse spirits and energies, but most importantly believers. Our belief is that there is no one-size fits all solution for taking care of yourself and your skin.

Our two founders Mandi and Lanya have both dealt with navigating a beauty industry that wasn’t made with their skin in mind. They’re two women, just trying to find that inner glow. One needed a clean slate with her skin and found it in the science of skincare. The other’s been looking for a creative outlet for her passion for beauty. This brand (their love child) is built on skintimacy, the radical power of knowledge and the audacity of self-acceptance.
