Meet the women

Ayssa DiPietro


"I’ve always been passionate about ocean conservation and it’s why I became a marine scientist. Unfortunately for my skin, since I spent so much time in wetsuits, I kept getting folliculitis on my bum. Unable to find a natural and eco-friendly solution, I started using oregano mixed with aloe and my rashes would practically vanish overnight. After sharing the remedy with others, I found that it worked for a variety of skin issues. I saw an opportunity to still protect our oceans but from a different angle: by creating the most environmentally-responsible beauty collection ever. This idea resonated with many skincare enthusiasts that wanted minimal but effective formulas that prioritize the sensitive ecosystems of our skin and of our oceans at the same time."
