OUR STORY



Like many natural skincare brands, Enso Beauty was created in response to a frustration—that is, I couldn’t find high-performance skin care that guaranteed zero trace of toxins and zero irritation.

I struggled with painful skin sensitivity since the age of nine. During that time, I tried products from more than 20 skincare brands, but the allergies and rashes persisted. I was perplexed because I was investing in highly reputable products from health-food stores and green beauty shops.

I eventually learned the labels “organic,” “natural,” or “100% natural” aren’t regulated and, therefore, mean nothing. Even if a product truly does contain natural and organic ingredients, it doesn’t mean the entire formula is natural and organic. And if a product is natural, the rest of the line might not be.

At the same time, I discovered traces of ingredients that were natural but highly irritating (castor oil, tocopherol and wintergreen extract, to name a few) along with hints of non-natural substances buried in hefty ingredients lists.

Like many entrepreneurs, I saw a need that wasn’t being met. Then I created a solution myself.

Fortunately for me, my husband Philip, who was raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was already one step ahead! Passionate about organic ingredients for home cooking and his vegetable gardening projects, he had amassed knowledge on botanical specimens and extensively studied Earth-grown ingredients. I parlayed Philip’s wisdom, and together we created Enso Beauty.

Enso Beauty is a natural skincare collection that’s 100% USDA Certified Organic—every ingredient, every product, every package.

This guarantees that the ingredients and the processes with which they are handled meet strict quality controls. Our minimalist collection (comprising only the product you need and no frilly extras) guarantees this superior quality no matter which bottle you own.

My grandmother always told me, “Sometimes it’s best to go back to the basics.” Turns out she was right. The simple truth is that just a few superior-quality ingredients are the most effective. That’s why all our formulas include everything you need and nothing you don’t, including:

• GMOs
• parabens
• palm oil
• hydrogenation
• potassium sorbate
• potassium benzoate
• toxic preservatives

We hope you love Enso Beauty as much as we do!
