skin alchemists

Skin Alchemists is a luxurious, performance-driven skincare brand whose roots lay in St Lucia. The brand is passionate about the use of potent active botanicals for their transformative power. This brand is about ingredients, lovingly harvested fresh, organic plant ingredients, natural minerals and aromatherapy blended to have a transformative impact on skin and wellbeing…everything in the range is created to appeal to your senses and to ultimately boost your wellbeing. Be Inspired.

The story begins with founder Theresa. Born and raised on the Caribbean island of St Lucia, she comes from a family of herbalists. Harnessing the medicinal power of plants to treat ailments and skin conditions is in her DNA. After migrating to London, her skin and health fell victim to the negative effects of a fast-paced city life, air pollution and processed food.

A shift in consciousness came during a trip back to St Lucia after observing an almost immediate increase to her energy levels attributed to eating fresh, organic foods. Her skin became clear and glowing from swimming in the mineral salts of the ocean and masking with volcanic mud from the Sulphur Springs. Returning to London, she was inspired to replicate these natural benefits by creating a line of organic skincare formulated using ancient remedies and potent plant alchemy.

Theresa describes herself as “ Island girl, tree hugger, dreamer” and she is endlessly inspired by the sheer power of plants and natural minerals to transform us… mind, body and spirit.

Theresa was inspired to create this brand because of her personal experience with her own skin concerns and by the memory of her grand-aunt a herbalist known for her plant-based potions. Her aim is to encourage wellbeing not just through using these luxurious products but by incorporating Selfcare rituals when we do. Theresa says “As you unwrap your treat you begin an intention to live in the moment and allow yourself to connect and find inner balance.” Be Inspired.

Skin Alchemists is committed to honouring Mother nature and respecting the earth. Our formulations as 100% natural and made using certified organic and or wild crafted ingredients. Our skin treats are botted in recyclable Miron glass and our boxes are made using FSC approved card stock. Most of our products are multi-tasking and come in discovery sizes to offer a taste of the products before committing to a full size.

In keeping with our pledge to highlight the importance of sustainability and respecting the environment we are featuring the effects of pollution on marine life in the Caribbean islands, a place close to my heart.

What’s one of the highlights of being a fempreneur?

It has to be the support I’ve received from other fempreneurs. It’s like a sisterhood!

Why is organic skincare so important to you?

Being from the Caribbean, I have seen first-hand the damage commercial fertilizers had on the environment (flora and fauna) and also to the health of the farmers. I would not want any part of that toxicity in my food, on my body or that of our customers, neither do I want to participate in encouraging that practice.

What is your favourite product from the range?

Every product in the range was designed to be a favourite and mine is always on rotation. I’m currently favouring the Humble Warrior because it is so versatile. I use it as a cleanser, hair treatment, body oil, massage oil, cuticle oil, I even use a few drops on my body brush.

What are your wellbeing ‘must haves’?

Turmeric and garlic in everything I eat and going out in nature at least once a week.

What motivated you to create your fab brand?

In three words: Good quality food!

The brand was born from a desire to feed my skin the same high quality ingredients I was eating.

Through a health condition, I learnt about the benefits of using good quality food ingredients. Using food as medicine was reminiscent of childhood teachings from my herbalist grand aunt Mano. Whilst there was ‘clean skincare’ on the market it was a lot of greenwashing and none were formulated using the high quality, unrefined ingredients I wanted. If I found anything close, the packaging would look like something you may find at a farmers market. There was and still is a growing movement by farmers returning to traditional farming practices for a higher quality product. I saw a gap in the market to formulate skincare, using traditional methods which extracted the full spectrum of nutrients from the highest quality ingredients, packaged and delivered luxuriously.
