SKINourishment is a skin care/repair company that offers 100% plant-based, food grade nutrition to heal our bodies from the outside, just as real food heals us from the inside.
After surviving a fire and losing all of her possessions, SKINourishment founder Polly Glasse turned her knowledge of alternative medicines toward developing dozens of formulations that tackle the toughest problems faced by our largest organ---the skin.
In 1996, inspired by the needs of rock climbers, she created the first solid lotion bar in the marketplace, climbOn. It is a top seller today and used by the #1 rock climber in the world, Tommy Caldwell, along with many others.
SKINourishment currently offers 4 product lines for climbers/activists, crossfitters, babies and spas.
All the products are poured by hand in Wimberley, Texas, and packaged with care into 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging. SKINourishment is distributed via retailers in 30 countries and is committed to making real products with 100% food-grade nutrition, that make a real difference for not only the people they touch but the planet as well.
Three investors from the AFI Investor Network funded the $70,500 loan, to be used for growth capital, in early July 2016.
