What was the impetus for this?

I never felt totally confident in what I was recommending to clients or what I’d used on me. I needed to develop something that I was totally committed to. So when I tell you to use it, I know what’s in it, I believe in it and I like using it on you.

I got very excited when I started reading about your ingredients and saw all of the alpha hydroxy acids.

Yes and what’s nice about my line is that I didn’t use any fillers, parabens, sulfates, or preservatives. They’re loaded with peptides too. I wanted to create something so that when we put the ingredients in the bottle in their most powerful state, there would be nothing to dilute the potency. This was important to me. And these products work fast. People see a difference sometimes in two days. My products are made in a French lab in Canada. And they’re made to order in small batches.

Are they skin-type specific?
