MEET OUR FOUNDER

Emma Zwissler began her journey to clean beauty after years of enduring painful hormonal acne breakouts as a side effect of living with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Having tried endless over-the-counter and prescription remedies and still coming up short, she sought to find a more effective and less irritating solution and discovered that nature was the ultimate healer. With a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation 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 boost the health of the skin from the inside out, rather than simply cover up current breakouts and blemishes.  

Emma resides in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. You can often find her enjoying a long walk on The 606, cooking a recipe from a favorite cookbook, or sharing a glass of red wine at a local restaurant with friends. Emma has spent years seeking out ways to live a more thoughtful clean lifestyle and shares her journey through The Sunday Standard's curated collection of best-in-class beauty, health, and wellness products.
