My obsession with botanicals stems from my childhood in northern Russia, a region abundant with powerfully therapeutic plants and herbs. One of my earliest memories was that of my grandmother applying natural remedies to the skin – and whilst I believed she had magical healing powers, she was simply using what nature had provided to restore, heal and comfort the skin.
My passion for plants evolved as I grew up and started travelling internationally; I loved to learn how different cultures harness their native botanicals to benefit the skin and senses. I spent years researching and documenting the powerful effects of nature’s most precious actives and, from this, was inspired to create an authentic, synergistic and elevated skincare range that makes a difference.
I’m proud to present Essentialle – a luxe, entirely natural skincare range that has been masterfully curated to enhance the skin’s overall health, texture and tone. Made in Britain, the products are meticulously designed to care for all skin concerns, containing exquisite as well as surprising plant-actives from around the world. Whilst nourishing, nurturing and rejuvenating, the products also imbue sheer sensorial joy and sublime aromatic pleasure.
I have created Essentialle for the evolved, modern woman who believes in small rituals and big results. She embraces life, is curious and engaged with the world, and comes from a place of wholeness, striving to be the best she can be. She understands that inner and outer beauty coincide and, whilst she may have minimal time for a complex skincare regime, she seeks a brand that delivers meaningful rewards. Her essence is reflected in the heart of our packaging aesthetic – understated yet confident. The owl symbol, mirroring mythology, represents her wisdom and femininity.
I hope you adore using Essentialle products as much as much as I’ve loved creating them.
Live true, live well, have fun.
