Our founder Denise Doherty, a Licensed Master Esthetician, started her skincare journey in the Ayurvedic tradition when training for her initial esthetic license. With a curious mindset, Denise continued her studies with a plastic surgeon to help complete her Master Esthetics courses successfully. During that time, she worked in local spas, where she excelled, trained new estheticians, and educated clients on skin care routines. 

While working for a wellness nonprofit, Lipstick Angels, Denise found a passion for innovative, non-toxic ingredients. Like many, Denise decided to pivot during the pandemic and combine her passion for the environment, skincare and giving back. Denise enjoys the outdoors in the PNW and spending time with her husband and two dogs.
