Mary is the founder of Mary Allan Skincare, a highly curated collection of premium skin care products. An expert on skin care, Mary's career spans over two decades working for some of the most iconic brands in the beauty industry. In 2018 Mary launched her namesake collection and has quickly gained a reputation amongst discerning customers who share the same approach and philosophy towards skin care as Mary.
''I believe holistic beauty is "conscious beauty" and includes all aspects of production from global ingredient sourcing to the wellbeing of people, animals and our planet.''
"Mary's namesake skincare collection marries the very best of science and nature. Her core belief which I completely stand by as well is this: “I don’t feel the end user should have to pick one over the other” - Katie Chang
Having access to the purest ingredients from around the world, Mary considers each ingredient in relation to the skin, with the objective to enhance the skin’s own natural youthfulness. Mary remains close to the world of botanicals traveling to the regions where she hand selects the precious botanicals specific to each product.
“I have spent over two decades traveling the world in search of the very best ingredients to help restore skin radiance. My greatest desire is to help you achieve your optimal complexion with cutting edge actives and ancient beauty rituals. It is my wish for all of us to feel truly beautiful as we are and that each day can be filled with a sense of wellbeing”
