Hi, my name is Aileen.
My skin wanted and needed something, but that something proved a challenge to find. This journey for "something" inspired me to keep moving forward and I've never looked back!
Here’s my story:
A couple of years ago, during the blustery winter months in New England, the skin on my abdomen started to itch. At first, it was a little annoying but then I started to lose sleep, counting sheep and scratches!
The pharmacy had shelves of lotions, creams, gels, bath additives and more; promising to soothe, calm, and relax. I tried several products and nothing worked.
During this time, I was frequently traveling to Europe and the effects of flying only exacerbated my condition, leaving me with dry, puffy and dull skin. Out of desperation, I decided to explore the local rituals such as traditional sea baths and the continental style thalassotherapy spas (thalassotherapy is the use of seaweed or seaweed extracts in health and beauty body treatments). Guess what? My skin improved!
Of course, wrapping wet seaweed on your skin isn’t that practical. I thought, let’s think of a better way.
Seaweed, it turns out, is a type of algae that has proven to help relieve certain skin conditions with excellent moisturizing and healing benefits. I experimented, and the winner for me was Atlantic seaweed. In fact, it worked so well, I decided to develop my own skin care products.
I wanted something pure, ethical, effective and safe. Without harmful ingredients like: phthalates (Google it – it’s a plastic additive that’s associated with a number of health issues), parabens, synthetic fragrances, detergents, Aluminum, Urea, Phenoxyethanol or Palm Oil (production is harmful to our environment).
This is how si SKIN Organics came to life.
Our products are Made Safe in an FDA approved, NSF-certified lab. Our “own proprietary formulas” (not private label) include highly concentrated extracts of seaweed, organic essential oils, botanicals and other natural actives.
The coveted “Leaping Bunny” certification confirms that we never test on animals. Our skin care line is “Vegan,” so you’ll never find animal by-products on the label or in the bottle!
I insisted on all of this because I wanted to create something to be proud of and to share with you, so you can look your best and feel your best too.
si SKIN Organics is the “something” that ignited a passion to find what my skin and spirit needed, and I hope it becomes your “something” too.
