Who are the founders of Food for Skin?
Two sisters from completely different backgrounds. Cathy is a natural skin specialist and Angela brand builder.
After a failed personal quest for honest, 100% natural skincare, they decided to take matters into their own hands to develop a Clean & Green skin care brand based on the goodness of (residuals of) vegetables.
They were brought up with this by their mother, who they jokingly call 'Green Teen'. Mother Tiny was ahead of her time: she has been doing organic gardening for 50 years, with her own vegetable garden and compost heap. The sisters know the feeling of fresh vegetables all too well.
Many know that it is good to eat a lot of organic vegetables, that your body feels good about it. But few know that your skin, your largest organ, also wants to be fed with all those vitamins and minerals. For two years, the sisters worked on the development of Food for Skin, together with a professional formulator and a laboratory, to bring well-functioning, no-nonsense, and beautiful products to the market. Launched in November '20, so still fresh!
Our mission is ambitious: we want to make the beauty industry 'clean', free of junk. Not just our products, but all skincare products. That starts with creating awareness, collecting good examples and then cleaning up the industry, together.
Let's go! Angela en Cathy
"Food for Skin is Food for Thought: do you know what you put on your skin? I wanted a 100% natural product that works well, is simple to use and looks good. There was none. So we simply made it!" And with succes, we are nominated for the Dutch Beauty Award!
"Food for Skin is build on the belief that it CAN be done, without microplastics or other nasties. That's why we are a proud partner of The Plastic Soup Foundation, donating 1% of our turnover to #Beatthemicrobeads"
"Food for Skin believes in the new business model where purpose and profit are balanced and we are proud to be a pending member of the B Corp community! "
Food for skin develops products that are safe, non-toxic and very effective. We believe in tangible results you can see and feel and we believe in the power of vegetables to achieve these results. Every ingredient we included in our products is there for a specific reason. We do not use any kind of fillers, which means that almost every ingredient in our products is an "active" ingredient. This results in pure, highly concentrated and effective formulas that are a rarity in the world of skincare and cosmetics nowadays. All our formulas are original, made by a professional formulator: Enjoy Divine Nature and tested by us, on real people - never on animals.
All our products emphasize organic, high-quality and food-related ingredients. Knowing that some of what we apply to our skin is quickly absorbed into our bodies, we search for the best natural resources the Earth has to offer, as close to home as possible to reduce our footprint. With circular and natural ingredients, we formulate substances that combine essential vitamins, minerals and botanicals to restore skin to optimal health and vitality. In addition to making products that deliver noticeable results, we also make our products with health and simplicity in mind.
We believe that your skincare routine should be easy and nutritious, just like prepping a healthy dinner.
