My mission is to assist people in achieving their best skin. Whether it’s addressing acne, signs of aging, wrinkles, or dry skin, I provide effective solutions. With extensive experience, having performed around 85,000 facial treatments during my 46-year career as a successful esthetician, I have encountered a wide range of skin issues. This valuable insight allows me to formulate products specifically tailored to help those facing various skincare concerns.

To ensure freshness and quality, I consistently produce my products in small batches. Occasionally, I discard existing formulations to create new batches, maintaining their excellence. I may also introduce new ingredients to further enhance already successful products.

At Gratia Botanica, crafting each small batch is a celebration of my commitment to beautiful skin. My intentions and mantra “Beauty, Grace, and Love” are infused into every step of the process. From sourcing potent raw ingredients to the final product, I ensure that only skin-loving goodness enters my studio lab, ready to transform your skin.

Your skin yearns to be nourished daily with Beauty, Grace & Love.

Well-hydrated skin is healthy. Adequately moisturizing the face can enhance skin elasticity and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Additionally, hydrated skin helps to balance out oily skin. Conversely, dehydrated skin produces more oil to compensate for its dryness, leading to congestion. Therefore, my commitment lies in assisting you in achieving your goal of attaining healthy, radiant skin, irrespective of your age. So, let’s work together towards this goal and make it a reality. With my help, beautiful skin can be within your reach!

Naturally Derived Ingredients


Results are the goal! I use organic, naturally derived, and functional ingredients. What does that mean?

Organic ingredients in our products have been grown using 100% natural farming methods. Methods using no artificial fertilizers, pesticides, or growth regulators. 

Natural ingredients in skincare formulations refer to substances derived from plants, minerals, or other naturally occurring sources. These ingredients are minimally processed and typically free from synthetic chemicals and additives. Examples of common natural skincare ingredients include plant oils such as jojoba oil or argan oil, botanical extracts like aloe vera or green tea extract, as well as natural emollients such as shea butter or cocoa butter. Natural ingredients are valued for their perceived gentleness on the skin, as well as their potential to provide nourishment, hydration, and other beneficial properties.

Functional ingredients in organic skincare formulations are compounds selected for their specific beneficial properties and effects on the skin. These ingredients serve a purpose beyond basic hydration or protection, often targeting particular skin concerns such as aging, hyperpigmentation, or acne. Examples of functional ingredients commonly found in organic skincare products include antioxidants like vitamin C or green tea extract, which help neutralize free radicals and protect against environmental damage. Other examples include hyaluronic acid for intense hydration, niacinamide for brightening and evening skin tone, and natural exfoliants such as fruit enzymes or alpha hydroxy acids for gentle skin renewal. Functional ingredients in organic skincare formulations are chosen not only for their effectiveness but also for their compatibility with organic principles, ensuring that they are sourced sustainably and without synthetic chemicals or additives.

Synthetic ingredients are compounds created synthetically rather than being directly extracted or harvested from natural sources. Although some synthetic ingredients may have origins in nature, they are subjected to laboratory refinement to achieve a purified version of the original raw material. In specific instances, synthetic ingredients are valued for their capacity to provide precise functions and desired results.

The scientific names (INCI – International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) of some naturally occurring ingredients might sound synthetic. For example, sea salt is sodium chloride, and citric acid represents lemon. Coco-Glucoside serves as a prevalent and natural substitute for conventional foaming agents and surfactants. EcoCert & COSMOS ingredients such as Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside are plant derived, GMO free and EcoCert approved.
