ABOUT M&S SKIN CARE

Skincare can be a real hassle. You need to find something that works while also not spending a boatload of money. We were going everywhere from the internet to department stores, and even wholesalers when we realized it - there's a sea of overpriced all-natural products that don't work. In fact, these products have so many ingredients that you can't even pronounce them! We tried just about every single one of them looking for the magic solution but it just wasn't happening.

It wasn’t till our daughter came to us crying because even the perception of acne cream that burned when she put it on wasn't working. Parents can understand how heartbreaking it is to see your child in pain, and those of you who have been dealing with their own skin issues can understand how frustrating it can be to go through. I know they say pain is beauty, but we aren’t so sold on that idea. This was what started us on our mission. We thought a great place to start was the “all-natural” products we had spent so much money on. Our thinking was while those products didn't work maybe if we could combine them into a new product we could get them to work. 

Us frustrated about other skin care

After researching those “all-natural” ingredients that weren’t pronounceable, we found things like formaldehyde, phthalate, and silicons, not all natural at all and likely making our skin issues worse. We also found that ingredients that could help were actually removed and sold as a different product, doubling the profit of the manufacture and stripping your wallet and skin. 

That’s not the practice we believe in here at M&S Skincare. Instead, we believe that skincare should be affordable and work. That’s why when our search came to an end after years of research and development in labs around the world (okay, maybe not really - but it sounded really good!), we came up with starting our own product lines. We don’t want to see another person go through that same painful process. We also think skincare can be a bit too serious, so you will also find we add a bit of our nerdiness

Living Our Values Everyday

OUR VALUES

Wholeness- We are a family business, and without family, we are nothing. We believe in the goal of wholeness, which is a life in which individuals, families, and communities are emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually healthy. We also believe that when we focus on the whole person, we can live a meaningful and full of a happy life.

Simplicity-As grandma always says, "KISS" it (keep in simple stupid). Skincare has gotten way too crazy with all the complexity and "advancements" it's made over the years. However, at M&S Skin Care, we believe that the older ways of making soap and other products are still the best for lasting results.

Playfulness- Laughter is the best medicine. Our family has made it through many dark days with laughter, so it's no big surprise that the same value is brought into our company. The beauty of it is that laughter needs no time or place, and a smile is the best makeover you can have.

Love- With everything we do, we do with love. Our products are made to help people, that's why we started, and that's why we still do what we do. We want to create products that make people's lives easier and better. We also love our fur babies, so we have never and will never test our products animals. Besides... we aren't really sure that pigs would look better with lipstick.
