Working as a pharmacist for over 10 years I noticed that a variety of patients’ treatments sometimes left their skin extremely dry and very vulnerable. The remedies available we´re not good enough and some people looked for alternative solutions. After months of study I decided to create an effective remedy to treat dehydrated skin.
After testing on some patients and hearing their comments I realised I had something special in my hands. It was then that I decided I could combine my studies in pharmacy with my knowledge in botany and in cosmetics for further research and advancing science. That’s how my non toxic beauty line TWELVE was born.
Rewarding Body Balm was the first product I created. The product name was suggested by patients of the clinic in London where I worked because, according to them, it comforted them and the body balm was seen as a reward to the skin. Currently the product is still in use in other prestigious clinics in central London, not only as a soothing and refreshing emollient, but also as a complement to other treatments in the hands, arms and legs.
