Our journey began in 2015 when Rebecca faced the unimaginable diagnosis of two Stage 4 Lymphomas. While chemotherapy treatments wreaked havoc on her body, her skin became dry and sensitive, drastically different from her typical smooth, silky complexion. As Rebecca researched potential options, she discovered harmful ingredients existed in the skincare she used. Although these supposedly natural products came highly recommended, they failed to deliver the restorative, soothing results her damaged, irritated skin required. Fearful that these products might harm her further, she tossed everything out.
Rebecca desperately needed a simple skincare routine and solution that was delicate enough while still nourishing her sensitive skin. Fortunate to have a formulation expert as a trusted friend, Rebecca called on her for relief. Leveraging her extensive scientific background and formal training in skincare, together they developed gentle, safe, plant-based formulas to nurture Rebecca’s skin back to pristine health.
The products were too good to keep to herself. Literally overnight, the formulas revived and repaired Rebecca’s skin, and everyone noticed. Rebecca’s daughter, Amanda, also experienced a huge transformation as the products hydrated and refreshed her dry skin. She loved the simplicity and ease of using the formulas. People began asking for the secret to their smooth, glowing skin, and they began sharing their products with family and friends.
As the number of interested friends and family expanded, Rebecca and Amanda decided to learn how to start a skincare line using their original formulas. After several years of research and development, My Alchemy Skin Care was born on June 5, 2018.
