Meet Our Founder
Hello there friend!
I’m Nicole, creator and founder of Plan B Skin Therapy. Curious how Plan B Skin Therapy got started? Well nearly two and a half years ago concerned that the cumulative amount of toxic chemicals my family and I were being exposed to on a daily basis were contributing to our never-ending colds, viruses, allergies, inflammation and general ‘urgh’ feeling I plunged head first into reducing our family’s toxic load. A big believer that little changes can make a difference I began searching for natural alternatives to the products we used around the house and more importantly on our bodies.
One of the biggest shock-horror moments I had upon immersing myself in all things low-tox was how traditional deodorants worked on our bodies. Did you know that anti perspirants use aluminium and other toxic chemicals to clog the pores under our arms?! The toxins your body is trying to eliminate through sweat have nowhere to go! Sweating allows our body to eliminate toxins through our skin as well as help to cool us down. Traditional anti-perspirants stop our body from be able to do what it does naturally!
So, in my quest for an affordable, all-natural deodorant alternative I started making my own!
Using my willing human friends and family as guinea pigs I eventually developed the perfect recipe. Soon I had even the most reluctant participants converted! I managed to convince my husband to give it a go and he (to my surprise) was sold! His t-shirts used to have hard crusty sleeves from where the anti-perspirant residue had stained his clothes, to the point where he could no longer wear some of his favourite shirts. Now I was saving his pits and his favourite shirts! Bonus!
Word spread and friends of friends starting asking for it. I didn’t expect such a positive response to something I started making for myself. I think the willingness of others to jump on board is a sign of our eagerness to seek out better, low-tox alternatives.
With that in mind I decided to launch Plan B Skin Therapy Original deodorant into the wide world and here we are!
Since this humble beginning we have launched About Face, our organic cotton and reusable face wipes, an alternative to single use cotton face wipes and our all-natural Solid Scent fragrance, Happy Camper! We have more very exciting all natural and organic products launching soon- WATCH THIS SPACE!!
I hope you love using our products as much as I love creating them.
Using Plan B Skin Therapy products you know you are being kind to your skin and to the planet.
