The Story of Saribelle
Once upon a time, my sweet little 7-year-old daughter, Ayla, looked up at me and said, "Mommy, can I use some of those creams and potions you put on your face?”
I thought about it, and then told her it wouldn't be a good idea because they might cause her skin to have a reaction from the chemicals they contained. But she didn't give up, and insisted that we should go into the kitchen and make some things that little girls like her could use that were safer.
Well, I had an even better, and much less messy, idea. In that moment, I was inspired to create a sensitive skincare line that was plant-based and gentle— so gentle that even a child could use it.
I hoped to create an ageless brand that was so natural and easy to use that young girls would enjoy taking care of their skin. I have suffered with allergy-prone skin throughout my entire adult life, and I didn't want my daughter to possibly suffer, too. It wasn’t just the chemically-based products that were irritating my skin, many of the “natural” products were, too. And so I created Saribelle Skincare, a skincare line that looks and feels beautiful, formulated with only the highest quality plant-based ingredients, and proven to be safe and effective for sensitive skin.
I thank my husband, Noah, and my three amazing children, Ayla, Asher, and Natan, for their love and support without which, the Saribelle story could not be told. I would also like to thank my Grandma Natalie, a strong believer in the importance of self-care who lived to age 105 and encouraged me to create Saribelle Skincare.
The origin of the name Saribelle: Sarit is my daughter's middle name, it means “princess,” and belle means “beautiful.”
