Letter from Marie
It's been 14 years since I started Marie Veronique in my kitchen, and it's only getting better, thanks to you! Your loyalty and continued passion and commitment to safe, clean products keep inspiring us to raise the bar – to formulate products on the cutting-edge of science, sourced ethically, produced with care, packaged sustainably and presented clearly. We want you to feel and look fantastic in the skin you're in, and to know that you're also supporting an independent brand. Together, we're changing the face of skincare and the personal care industry in a way that big companies can't. And that's something to be proud of!
I couldn't have done it alone. I've been very lucky to have worked – and work now – with some truly amazing people who continue to guide and shape the company into one that leads, and that is personal, unique, positive and innovative.
Those of you who have been with me since 2002 know we've undergone some changes. It's been quite a journey from my kitchen to selling locally and online to having my own brick-and-mortar store. Looking back, I'm grateful for the time I spent at the apothecary in Elephant Pharmacy where I was able to meet many of you and hear about your skincare concerns first-hand. The treatment line for acne had its beginnings there, as did the zinc-oxide sunscreen, which continues to be a popular must-have. Along the way, I've created quite a few products. Like everyone else, we started out doing skincare, now (unlike everyone else) we do skin health.
It is our great pleasure to introduce a clean new look. While the formulations remain the same, we've refreshed the packaging of our big, happy product family, renaming many to let you know from the start what each does. We think you'll find it easier to find the products you need for your skin type, see how they will benefit you, and know when and how to use them. On the website, we've noted the previous versions alongside the new, so you you can easily find your favorites.
Again, we send a huge bouquet of thanks for your questions, suggestions, and support over the years. Step by step we're making big changes and looking forward to a wonderful 2016!
