They talked with skin care company owners but weren’t always impressed with their ingredients or results. They then spoke with formulators about developing their own skin care line but were dismayed by how many said the way to make products cleaner and greener was just to not list any toxic ingredients on the label if they were present in amounts too small to be covered by federal labeling regulations. That wasn’t what Annmarie and Kevin wanted either. Their products would have to be free of toxic chemicals.
They had just about given up the quest when Annmarie walked into a small spa in Patagonia, Arizona. The esthetician there introduced her to a line of skin care unlike anything Annmarie had ever known. The products felt so different—alive, with a palpable energetic vibration—and the scent was like nothing she had experienced before. When Annmarie applied the face oil, she saw immediate results. After more than six months of searching, here at last was a product line they could recommend.
Annmarie contacted Bunnie, the owner of the skin care line. An herbalist and a chemist, Bunnie has been formulating products made with organic ingredients for over 30 years, using herbs and extracts straight from nature—in their finest and purest form. Unfortunately, her products are sold only in spas. But after finding a line so closely aligned with their values, Annmarie and Kevin couldn’t just let it go. Back they went to Bunnie, to see if she would help them bring a skin care made with natural ingredients line to the wider public. Happily, she agreed.
In 2009, Annmarie Skin Care was launched. Each product is made with intention, using our 3-step, Wild. Beautiful. proprietary process. All ingredients are hand-selected, then infused in base oils and aloe juice, and then crafted using additional plant extracts and ingredients to make them as effective as possible. The result is beautiful, glowing skin.
