We know skincare issues can be complex and confusing but luckily we've spent a lifetime collecting herbs, formulating natural remedies and treating all kinds of sensitivities.

All my life I have had very sensitive skin. While nothing heals quickly, using all-natural, organic ingredients will bring improvements and you will feel better about your skin and yourself. 

It's so worth it to be patient and give yourself a chance to try!

Hi, I’m Iva Sebestyan!

As a little girl, I had bad eczema on my hands. My parents tried everything but it was over a school break at my grandmom’s country house that I was shown some natural treatments. A neighbor recommended I use some of the herbs from my grandma’s big country garden to make a herbal bath. I soaked my hands twice a day and my grandma made a herbal cream which I applied every night. Slowly, the eczema disappeared and never came back.

That’s when everything started. A young girl and a firm believer in herbal remedies, I would collect and dry herbs of all kinds - the stems, leaves and blossoms - for therapeutical companies and thus began my career in natural skincare.
