About


                   SKIN THEORIST CO.

Less than 10% of women we surveyed were able to say that they love their raw skin. 

We think this is because there is very little #rawskinrepresentation on social media. All too often, beautiful skin is synonymous with contoured/highlighted skin.

Raw skin is rarely painted as beautiful on social platforms.

the THEORY //

NIGHT ROUTINE | Taking off makeup leaves women feeling like the "BEFORE" picture overwhelming news feeds.

MORNING ROUTINE | Make-up allows her feel presentable... worthy... human again.

Imagery is powerful. #Rawskinrepresentation and raw stories are vital to invert this scary trend leading our women towards high insecurities, low-self-esteem and faster aging.

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO MANIFEST POSITIVE SKIN ATTITUDES?

SKIN SAGA... a short film celebrating raw stories and re-painting raw skin as beautiful, glamorous and empowering!

SKIN SAGA is a psychological necessity in this new age of social media. Our eyes, mind and skin need to see raw skin re-painted!

Film scrip is in the works. We're ASKING you to DRIVE our vision into production this Autumn! 

FILM DAY FEELS

A successfully funded campaign will allow us to provide screen time for humans who are ready to share their stories to spark collective healing. Stories which bring to surface hidden insecurities, peer-pressure, childhood trauma, adult trauma, societal expectations, genetic disorders, impact of cancer and other illnesses and so much more.

To make this project possible, we're thanking our project backers with a preview of our signature formulations, experiences and quench bottles.

REWARDS - Signature Formulations Skin Theorist Co.

AQUA FLAME

skin nutrient boosters

This duo [cooling + warming] is always formulated with the intent to spark self-reflection, healing, creation and mindfulness. Our Ayurvedic practioner Nahid Ameen, is also a registered nutritionist. Working in the wellness industry for well over a decade, she has been marrying Eastern Ayurvedic wisdom with Western science.

These nutrient concentrates are the first to be released from the vault. Welcome these two versatile skin therapists into your own capsule skincare collection.

HAIR . SKIN . NAILS . TATTOOS . MASSAGE

COOLING

WARMING

SO MANY WAYS TO SELF-CARE

1. Add a pump to your existing moisture to spike it's nutrient content. 

2. Use Aqua (fast absorber) to pamper oily/balanced skin. 3. Use Flame (velvetty nourisher) to quench dry/mature skin. 

4. Play - read your skin and marry the pair in your custom proportions to your skin's desire. 

5. Spot treat combination skin with the respective formulation.

LEARN ABOUT OUR SCIENTIFIC PACKAGING

BLACK [violet] glass is a sustainable packaging solution that mirrors the integrity of our brand vision.

Tests conducted by Miron Violet Glass AG | http://www.miron-glas.com/en/Test-procedures
Tests conducted by Miron Violet Glass AG | http://www.miron-glas.com/en/Test-procedures

POTENCY PRESERVING | Even the highest quality ingredients start to lose potency in light permeable containers. With ancient Egyptian wisdom as it's backbone, violet glass [appears black on the outside] preserves the bio-energy of ingredients by offering unmatched protection from light.

Light is essential to life on Earth. Yet, the same rays that aid plants to reach maturity and bear fruit, accelerates its molecular decay post maturity. The deep violet hue of our water bottle & skincare packaging blocks the complete spectrum of damaging light while allowing the beneficial violet rays to enter.

Our violet glass packaging is BOX-FREE. These durable glass bottles will travel to you protected by scrap fabric or recycled newsprint. Minimal-waste solutions are important.

REWARD - Quench Bottles

DIGITAL PROTOTYPE

These 1-litre bottles allows water to rest & synchronize. REST your detox, reverse-osmosis, alkaline and Berkey water in these potency-preservers. 

MY SKIN. MY STORY.

 SYNCHRONIZE

 REWARD - RETREAT

Your skin maybe easy to navigate. On the contrary, it may feel like rocket science. You trust yourself to cook and nourish your internal organs. We're confident that your DNA houses the power to also self-formulate and care for your external organ -- your skin.

Payton focused on PROTECTION as her intention while formulating her personal blend of nutrient body oil. Naming her baby 'HULK' for infinite courage & strength makes complete sense.

Options & pressure to alter, mask and cover up your story are many... Skin Theorist Co. manifested to remind you that you also have the option to respectfully decline and be at home in your own skin (if you so choose) AND honour your raw story.

IMMERSIVE RETREAT

Many chapters make up your story. Illness, trauma, social expectations and stress can often fragment + scatter your story. Learning your story is a critical. At the UNCOVER YOUR SKIN STORY retreat engage in guided-sharing and writing workshops, movement, meditation, cell nourishing nutrition and guided one-on-one or tribe custom skincare formulations.

Stirring in your own healing intentions into your formulations will impact your skin in ways mass-produced solutions never will.

 REWARD VISUALS

 GRATITUDE -

Designers, movers, makers and out-of-the-box thinkers from different walks of life generously invested their time, effort and energy to co-construct empowering content to spark radical shifts in skin attitudes.

This autumn, we look forward to re-uniting with many more beautiful beings to film Skin Saga. 

"My skin is forgiving. I can neglect it for weeks; deprive it of water, exercise, sleep and nutrition. As soon as I spin back around to self-care... It heals. It glows. My skin is resilient. Harsh Canadian winters... extreme equator heat... homelessness... childhood sexual, physical and emotional abuse... lt heals. It glows.

My skin is responsive. Listening to what I say and think, it glows or it dries up. My skin is reflective. Acutely sensitive to the vibrations of those around me... It glows or it dries up.

Entrepreneurship is therapeutic to my mind that's forever looking for ways to innovate, collaborate & problem-solve... Likewise, self-formulating with intent is healing to the skin I often neglect. 

Guided by my Architect, I look forward to documenting my ups and down into new chapters on my skin. Humans aren't meant to be perfect. Expecting my skin to be perfect would be ludicrous; so I don't. And this... my skin loves. It uses it as fuel to restore every time I steer off into neglect and back around to self-care.

I look forward to connecting with your skin & life stories. 

Represent your raw skin. Wear it out to work. Wear it in to bed. It will breathe. It will heal. You'll learn how to tap into your DNA and glow your own way." - Dharmini (Dee) Thirukumaran

Almost a decade ago... back then make-up wasn't what it is now. Still, I was taken. The marketing messages had me. I was voluntarily donating paychecks to my nearest drug store for everything hair and make-up. This was also a time when I thought I was happy... I thought I knew myself... I had no idea.

Though my self-discovery and healing process has been messy, re-learning my story has had the most incredible impact on my skin, soul and spirit.

Choose the UNCOVER YOUR SKIN STORY retreat. My skin right now is stressed, tired, dehydrated and over-worked. You'll see it at its worst. Witness and learn how you too can transform your skin by learning to listen. Our two nights will make a difference. Imagine the compound effects of weeks, months and years of self-care. Invest in yourself holistically.

Risks and challenges

There's nothing we're more familiar with than risks & challenges. But every step is taken with complete faith in the Most High Architect to guide this journey.

We have our campaign manager Beth Borody and Beyond Buzz sharing our story. Beth is an Wilfred Laurier graduate with extensive experience working with NGOs, social enterprises in Canada and abroad in West Africa. We've co-constructed an extensive list of risks & challenges! Activist, entrepreneur, author, artist and Jal Gua cafe + Jalgua superfood founder, Emmanuel Jal is also on board to keep us on track.

Post successful campaign, we'll finalize packaging design, order inventory, fill our orders and curate a team of creatives to get started on finalizing our film script and getting ready for production.
