My greatest desire is to help you restore and maintain your most radiant complexion with next-generation proven anti-aging actives and ancient beauty rituals from the World’s longevity regions. 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”
"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
A HOLISTIC APPROACH
Mary has always been an advocate for natural and clean beauty ingredients and first became aware of a more holistic lifestyle while living on Vancouver Island during her college years.
Having access to the purest most advanced ingredients Mary considers the skin in its entirety, with the objective to preserve and enhance the skin’s own natural microbiome and 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 believe holistic beauty is "conscious beauty" and includes all aspects of production from ingredient sourcing to the wellbeing of people, animals and our planet.''

MARY'S EARLY YEARS
Mary's experience in the skin care industry spans over two decades primarily working for Women run companies. Mary got her start managing one of Anita Roddick’s family run Body Shops where she learned first hand from Anitia about ethical ingredient sourcing and fair trade ingredients, which at the time was unheard of in the skin care industry.

Mary was surrounded by many mentors at Jurlique and spent five years learning about organic and biodynamic farming principles. From Jurlique Mary oversaw global education for the International Dermal Institute before leaving to strike out on her own. Mary is formally trained in botanical skin care formulation, holistic aromatherapy and advanced esthetics. Prior to founding her own company, Mary held a series of senior executive positions with some of the world’s leading skincare companies including Vice President of Global Education for The International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica, Vice President of Jurlique USA Retail Group.
