In 2016, our founder, Maurice, had an accident that left him physically and emotionally scarred. As he embarked on a journey to heal, he discovered kintsugi, the Japanese art in which broken pottery is joined back together using gold. He slowly learned to accept his physical marks, and spent months nourishing his skin using raw African shea butter. He tested out different ways of perfecting his formula, and later had the idea of creating a product for anyone on a journey to fully accept, love and care for their skin.
Like mended pottery that is brought back using precious material, imperfections or even differences should be valued and serve as reminders of our unique history and identity.
