It's been 18 years in the making. In a small Connecticut town, we opened a spa with the goal of providing our clients with anti-aging treatments that successfully removed fine lines and unsightly sun damage. Over time, many of the women that we built relationships with have developed skin cancer, namely melanoma. Seeing our friends and family go through the surgery, treatment and terror that accompanies skin cancer was a watershed moment for us. We knew we needed to do more than just erase the signs of premature aging; we needed to give women a reminder when they were putting themselves at risk.
Our mission is to provide a subtle reminder of the risk of daily UV exposure and to encourage woman to protect themselves each day. Driving in the car or sitting close to a window, we all receive more sun than we realize. Our jewelry is designed to empower the woman we love and our skincare was created with the same passion and purpose.
We knew our greatest challenge was getting men and woman to wear sunscreen daily and so began our quest to offer a sunscreen that didn’t feel (or smell) like sunscreen! From there, we worked to add products to our collection that were focused on clinical results. Products that work to prevent and reverse signs of sun damage and aging. Our clinical line includes products with Retinoids, AHA’s, Peptides, Probiotics and Pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid. Each product is made with the highest quality ingredients and the most effective delivery systems available today and all of our skincare is proudly made in the USA!
