Meet Our Founder
Emma Zwissler began her journey into clean beauty after trying every over-the-counter and prescription acne remedy there is and still coming up short. Having suffered from painful cystic acne breakouts for years and finally being diagnosed with a hormonal disorder called poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, Emma was red faced, flaky, and totally over it. She sought out to find a less irritating solution, and found that nature was the ultimate healer. With a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation from Formula Botanica and several years of self-study on the healing power of plants and the science of the skin, Emma set out to build the skincare line she always dreamed existed - one that would heal the skin from the inside out, rather than simply cover up imperfections.
Emma founded The Sunday Standard in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now works and lives in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. You can often find her in her local yoga studio, cooking a recipe from the latest Bon Appetit, or enjoying a glass of red wine with friends. Emma has spent years seeking out ways to live a more thoughtful non-toxic life, and shares her stories and journey on our website's blog pages.
