The brand’s debut product is a potent blend of botanicals designed to keep skin supple and soft, hydrating and conditioning whilst also delivering powerful antioxidants.
Come for the stunning minimalist packaging, stay for the even more stunning formulations inside.
While natural beauty specialist Maryse O’Donnell loved the skincare brands she worked with over her career, she felt there was something missing – a space for super effective, natural and organic skincare preparations, made in New Zealand. So she created them herself – formulating a family of eight products each packed with highly-concentrated, highly-nutritive ingredients from nature.
Ingredients like manuka leaf – harvested from wild-growing native manuka trees here in New Zealand. Manuka leaf is exceptionally antibacterial and massively beneficial for the skin due to its detoxing properties – it’s included in the Maryse exfoliating polish.
Even as the brand has grown (now sold internationally – including in the US, Switzerland and Australia) Maryse still formulates everything by hand herself, in small batches, right in her studio in Ponsonby, Auckland. She is currently deep in development on new lip and cheek tints in various shades – all organic, super subtle yet buildable colours, for a hint of glow in a pink and apricot hue. Yes please!
The packaging was designed by Maryse’s partner, Art Director Campbell Hooper. Maryse wanted the brand to feel simple yet effective, clean, and modest – no tricks. Just like the skincare inside.
