Kindergarten Photo Re-Do

Kindergarten picture day was the first time my skin broke out. My mother covered up my first pimple with a band-aid and promptly asked for a re-do a few days later. What five year old has acne? Well I did, and my skin has been acting up ever since: allergies, acne, rosacea, and now signs of aging.


     I started this line for skin health to address my own acne rosacea (including scars from continual breakouts) as well as my own skin allergies to almost everything (fragrance, artificial colors, the sun, saltwater, even my own tears!). My goal was to make peels accessible to everyone, since that treatment is really effective on a lot of skin issues like acne, fine lines, scars, etc. Creating the [re]fresh line became my personal quest: to find products that really work for even the most sensitive skin types without compromising our values. I worked with some of the best labs in the country, testing countless formulations until we came up with “this is the one!” for ever single product.


Not only do our products deliver beautiful skin, they are also vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, and made in the USA. I hope you love our products as much as we do.



Best Wishes,
