Allow me to introduce myself and this brand.
I am a certified organic skincare formulator, a passionate researcher, a holistic health approach ambassador, and a long time rosacea and eczema sufferer.
I started making skincare naturally, after years of looking for a solution for my own skin problems and recently trying to help my son’s acne prone skin.
Ten years ago I desperately needed to find out why my face was so inflamed, hot and dry all the time, constantly breaking out and flushing intensely. The doctors diagnosed me but were of no help as to what causes rosacea and adult acne breakouts and what is the long-term solution. This is when I started researching skincare ingredients, nutrition and lifestyle changes and began a personal and professional transformation that ultimately resulted in the creation of The Other Skincare Company.
Working with herbs and plant based ingredients is very important to me and it is in the core of The Other Skincare Company's values but as I was experimenting and testing different formulas for problem skin I felt that there was something still missing. That was addressing the overall immunity of the skin and its ability to self-repair and self-protect instead of only trying to treat different symptoms.
My research showed that the most powerful skin barrier boosting ingredients are also naturally part of our skin. These “skin identical” ingredients make the skin stronger, more resilient and resistant to bacteria overgrowth and external irritants without compromising its integrity, changing its natural pH levels or disturbing its healthy microbiome balance.
So this is how it all began, I started formulating products for my son combining anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory plant actives with immunity boosting "skin-identical" ingredients and the results were amazing. Later, after realizing how many women are actually suffering from adult acne and looking for natural solutions, I evolved the formulas to specifically cater to the needs of a more mature skin suffering from breakouts and also needing to address ageing, hydration, skin tone and firmness.
My goal for this brand is to always offer problem solving skincare that is also completely natural, elegant and luxurious. We are working on a full line for rosacea prone skin and hope to be able to offer it soon.
