How it all began.
It was 2013 and I was in another bleak dermatologists office.
My on-and-off relationship with cystic acne was at another peak and the dermatologist, who barely made eye contact with me, recommended Accutane for the second time. Allowing my intuition to speak up, I turned down the prescription, left the appointment and started researching natural alternatives to help my acne-ridden and oily skin. When I discovered oils could serve as a treatment option, I booked an appointment with a local aromatherapist. Within our hour appointment, I soaked in her knowledge like a porous sponge, that's when the light went off and Maven Made started to take form.
I invested in high-quality, ethically-sourced ingredients to create my own facial serum (the same serum sold here). Since discovering the powers of botanical, embracing a healthier life and releasing what no longer served me (this came in many forms), my skin transformed. I had to share my experience with others.
With a passion for spreading my personal discovery and a desire to make natural products less pretentious and more accessible, Maven Made was launched in 2014.
In 2016, I added workshops to the Maven Made umbrella to spread knowledge, learn from others + give people an opportunity to create custom products to fit their needs. Being a catalyst to connect others to their intuition, ask questions and form an inclusive platform is where I find my bliss.
The bottom line of Maven Made? Simple natural, nontoxic products for skincare and wellness. From botanical oils to Full Moon-charged rosewater or Amethyst-infused sugar, ingredients used in Maven Made products are nontoxic, certified vegan and organic.
Maven Made is proudly a queer + woman-owned business who does not shy away from talking about racism, lgbtq+ issues, cultural appropriation, feminism + real issues.
