About Us

We’re no Mother Theresa. But we are kind to the pore.

We are real people with real skin (and everything that comes with it!) And we know that real people want products that work. Botanicals proven to soften lines and protect the skin from all the unkindness the world throws at it. That’s why every aspect of our products has been thoughtfully, intentionally formulated. No nonsense here. Just ingredients that get you glowing. How do we know? Because they’ve worked on us.

After years of trying to do it all, we’ve learned that self-care makes us better mothers, partners, colleagues, and friends. We’ve learned that kindness must first start within. So we’re out to make that kind of self-care accessible to all, with a product that is kind to the skin, the senses, and the soul. Effective, luxurious ingredients that are available and accessible for real people.

A sweet reminder for us all to be a little kinder to ourselves.

Our vision is clear.

In our vision the world looks a whole lot more kind. Not saccharine sweet. But authentic and generous. We want to share with people the remarkable benefits of CBD skin care— redefining what it means to glow. We aim to create a community that supports one another with a little kindness and a whole lot of sass. And even beyond that, we want to be part of a world that finds more kindness through authenticity, thoughtfulness, and that glorious butterfly effect the begins, first… with loving ourselves.

Our Promise is Real.

There are so many misconceptions around CBD. But the benefits to our skin and our health are just too profound to be kept off limits any longer. In fact, no one should be barred from experiencing this powerful plant extract. We believe it can truly help the masses. So we believe in doing everything we can to make CBD accessible to all.

We also believe in being straight with you, and bringing CBD into the light with real facts and science. So if you’re curious about this powerful ingredient, then come with us. Because we will always be transparent about the quality of our CBD. And we will never make claims that are unsubstantiated.

Yes, kindness starts inward. But once we’ve been kind to ourselves, we believe in looking around to see where else we can help. That means living Sweet and Kind to the environment. So our ingredients are ethically sourced, and our packaging is recyclable. And we’re perpetually looking for more sustainable ways to make our process Kind to Mama Earth.

Cofounders, Mary Katherine Schenkel and Suzanne Zelov, are a couple of G.R.I.T.s (Girls Raised in the South), who met over fifteen years ago at a church just outside of Philadelphia. They bonded over their shared Southern roots, young children, fashion and—you guessed it — obsession with skincare. Trading product tips and beauty hacks quickly became a mandatory during get togethers and phone calls. These exchanges often centered around the ingredients they loved and the ones they didn’t. Working with chemists with more than 20 years in the beauty industry, those discussions shaped the formulas they are thrilled to share with you today.
