I started CRAWFORD STREET SKIN CARE in 2010. Back then, I was trying to care for my skin using commercial products and was frustrated with the results. Finally, after I had a bad allergic reaction to a face cream I was using, I knew I needed something different.
With my dermatologist's help, I figured out that I was using skin care products with numerous chemical preservatives: they contained things that I had never heard of, and couldn't pronounce. I knew there had to be better solutions. I recalled the simple skin care habits of the women in my family, and their beautiful skin. What could I put on my face that would give me similar healthy and consistent result
Inspired by traditional recipes, I began to experiment and came up with a face moisturizer that was 100 percent natural. I saw results immediately. My friends began to notice my skin's even tone and glow. Then I started making cream for them and soon I had a small line of handcrafted skin care products.
My formulas are simple and timeless, and made of ingredients* that women have used on their skin for generations. I have created products made from known natural, effective ingredients for women like me, who want an uncomplicated routine that ensures healthy, enduring, beautiful skin. I think my grandmothers would be proud.
