You know what they say: first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a thriving body and skincare company. Martha met Curt over two decades ago; they've been partners in one way or another ever since.
Martha grew up in Mexico, in a town where having shoes was a luxury and medicine was often unavailable. Some of her earliest and strongest memories are hanging onto her Grandmother’s apron, following her everywhere, as she began to learn how to make herbal salves and tinctures.
Martha would go into the hills to collect flowers with her Grandfather and into the garden to collect herbs with her Grandmother. Together, they’d make tinctures and medicine in the kitchen.
From the get-go, Martha was fascinated by the synergy of ingredients. She has become a product alchemist out of sheer practice and curiosity, fueled by the magic of helping others.
She also went through a wild child phase where she spent quite a bit of time on the back of motorcycles, but that’s for another day.
When Curt was 16-years old, he wrote letters to every bicycle publication in the US asking them to sponsor him and his best friend in the first-ever mountain bike descent of Pike’s Peak—a rugged summit standing at 14,115 feet high in the Rocky Mountains.
The proposition was to equip Curt and his best friend with gear and kickass bikes for the adventure. It worked! He and his pal bombed down unchartered territory, making history.
We could tell you all kinds of other things about Curt; his years at an explosive startup in Silicon Valley, all 22 times he moved before the age of 21, that he lived as the son of an Air Force dad, or his unwavering affinity for Martha's Mexican cooking. But—the bike story is still who Curt is today; kicking butt with his best friend. (Only now, his best friend is Martha.)

No one said growing up was easy; especially when it's amid hundreds of competitors who have monster corporate backing. That's okay; that's where we are different. Our small but growing business (thanks to you) prides itself on listening to our customers and maintaining the quality of our craft.
Our formulas are made of ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients (such as honey, tepezcohuite, and organically grown hemp). We believe in making a difference as real as our products, which is why we put everything to the test (with humans—not animals) before releasing anything to our customers.
You are what you feel. We make products that your skin will dance with and your body will thrive on. Our products will never contain harmful ingredients for you, the earth, or your dog (if he/she happens to chow down on everything on your bathroom vanity).
