Hi! I'm Jess. Starting in my home kitchen, I opened Pronounce Skincare in February 2013 after my son was born with allergies to many commonplace things. I quickly became a label reader and took the health of my family into my own hands. In my home kitchen I began handcrafting skincare products from scratch (with ingredients you can...pronounce!) and shipping them around the globe.
Over 6 years later (and 4 shop location moves) through my family’s wellness journey I’ve learned that food, fitness, and skincare are intertwined, and that creating my life from scratch is a lifestyle I love to pass on to others.
While chatting with my husband one evening in early 2013 I told him that I wanted to start a blog and also sell the body butters I had been creating for friends and family. My goal was (and remains) to be the leading resource for those who want to DIY their own skincare goods, and also offer them for sale. I started the original Scratch Mommy blog and skincare line to share my exploration into health and natural skin treatments, and offer my handcrafted skincare goods to the masses. The overwhelmingly positive response, readership, and customer growth and loyalty encouraged me to keep learning, healing, and 'from-scratching', and led to the inception of my new brand...Pronounce Skincare...my natural skincare shop. Pronouncing the ingredients that I put in and on my body is hugely important to me. In each of my recipes I’ve eliminated the ingredients that I can’t pronounce - cheap, unnecessary, filler, often toxic ingredients.
I believe my business model is a win-win for wellness searchers: I’ve made DIY, handcrafted skincare readily available by providing free recipes on my blog and supplying raw recipe ingredients in my Herbal Boutique…or simply head over to the Pronounce Skincare Shop to purchase quality handcrafted skincare goodies for you and yours.
