In 2009 the founder Sarah experienced a health (well, life) crisis. She lost her dad suddenly, then not long after she was diagnosed with Endometriosis, a nasty fertility illness, all whilst trying to juggle a stressful career in TV. Life catches up on you and soon she realized she wasn’t coping: her body and her skin went into flare and she developed breakouts, redness and dermatitis. She hopped from one beauty product to another, trying to find a solution to cover up her skin issues but she couldn’t find anything to help. Her skin and my body needed a fresh start. She quit my job and began to help myself one step at a time: She quit smoking and drinking; she began to eat well and practice yoga and then I turned her attention to what she put on her skin.
She, like many other women, refuses to risk her health for beauty. She wanted to eliminate endocrine disruptors (linked with fertility illnesses), carcinogens and the hundreds of skin irritants that can be found in many conventional beauty products. She studied skincare formulation and essential oil science and worked tirelessly to create formulations that were fresh, gentle, pared-back and effective. Her skin started to look clear and calm and then the inflammation disappeared. She developed healthy glowing, peachy soft skin!
And so, Skin & Tonic was born.

SKIN & TONIC’s detoxifying facemask will draw out toxins and impurities, leaving your skin clearer and brighter. Their powerful clay mask, made with just 5 ingredients, is great for oily/combination skin. The highly active green clay binds with impurities and soaks up excess oil to deeply cleanse pores.
Certified organic matcha tea is loaded with antioxidants, which help to protect against environmental damage, while lemon and basil oils soothe blemishes and brighten skin.
All of SKIN & TONIC’s clay masks and scrubs are in powdered form (i.e. no water) to preserve the integrity and quality of the ingredients. When you add water, you need to preserve it–which is where the ingredients list can get pretty lengthy.
