Meet Graydon


Allow me to introduce myself, I am Graydon - the mind behind the brand. 

Before I feel comfortable purchasing a product, I certainly appreciate learning as much as I can about what I’m buying and if possible who I’m buying from… so I thought you’d also appreciate getting to know me and our products a little better.

People like to call me an ingredient anthropologist because I'm always on the lookout for incredible plant based ingredients that nourish and protect your skin. I am a 'real food' advocate, multi-tasking mother, a yoga inspired healthy skin educator - often seen walking my dog with a mug of green tea. You can be sure to find me foraging through local farmers markets searching for unusual products, reading glasses in hand, perusing the labels. I love what I do.

In creating this line of skincare, the focus of my work is to leverage the transformative power of pure plant-based ingredients to create products that are as effective and luxurious as any mainstream luxury brand.  

Should you be wondering, the connection I've had with therapeutic plants and foods is something that started many years ago when my family moved to France. I am truly blessed to have great memories sitting in farmers' fields engulfed in lavender and rosemary, enjoying fresh locally grown food as a young child. 

On a very personal note, the history and evolution of my product-line is also fuelled from my personal journey to create wellness in my life. Having battled a bevy of eating disorders, ongoing anxiety and panic attacks starting in my teens, it was only through the power of changing my diet to create health for myself that I began to transform my life from 'dis-ease' to 'ease'. When I finally committed to healing myself using the power of healing foods, everything started to shift. 

Many years later after loads of study and work in the fields of holistic health, yoga, art, marketing and the culinary world I count myself very lucky to have partnered with a small team of like-minded experts to create this line. Our strategy is to fuel the body through the skin using bio-available ingredients like you'd put in your breakfast bowl (think superfoods like broccoli, berries, chia and avocado) so you will not need a science degree to read our full disclosure ingredient lists.

Please note that even though our recipes originate from our kitchen when we send our formulas over to our chemist, they undergo tweaking and testing so that they're commercially viable while still maintaining their 'homemade' integrity. 

It goes without saying that we don't use stuff that your skin doesn't like to 'eat' including fillers, petrochemicals, nasty chemicals, phthalates, artificial fragrances or colours. 

Our simple modern packaging will also add a touch of elegance and grace to any home or handbag.

I hope you enjoy using our products as much as we have enjoyed developing them for you!
