Where did the inspiration to start Sans [ceuticals] come from and how has the company evolved since?
I started developing Sans [ceuticals] in 2007 out of frustration of not being able to find pure, natural, results-driven products that were also thoughtfully designed and sustainable. I wanted products that would have a noticeable effect on skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis, so I started working closely with a couple of dermatologists and got to understand skin at a fundamental level. Because of my background as a hairstylist, I also wanted to create high-performance hair care that had the ability to repair damaged hair. Doing this naturally has been something of a challenge with hair care, but I believe we have achieved it.
The company has evolved but the fundamentals are still the same! We are still very results-focused, using high-dose actives, suspended in clean and natural bases. This allows our products to be used top-to-toe, avoiding the wastage of multiple products expiring in the bathroom cupboard.
