Co-founded by husband and wife powerhouse, Paul Drake and Karen Sinclair-Drake. Between them, they have 45 years’ of experience in the creating personal care products based on green science and functional medicine principals.
Their calling was in healthcare and they spent years focusing their energies on improving people’s lives. Their journey began in England as approved private-sector providers of American-made orthopedic products to the UK’s beloved NHS hospitals, including St. Thomas’s, Guys of London, and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and USA military hospitals in the EU.
Passionate about high quality, innovative, and state of the art products that improve the lives of both the patients and staff who use them, they held themselves and their suppliers (who were some of the best in the industry, we might add!) to the highest standards with “quality” and “innovation” very much at the fore.
It was during this time that Karen was about to lose her hairdresser and rather than let that happen, a decision was made to open a hair and beauty salon as a side venture. Soon thereafter, it became clear that Karen and Paul’s interest was in the products rather than the actual day to day grind of running several salons. A chance meeting transpired with some seriously talented chemists and a new venture was born. That was the start of a passion to make the best certified professional skincare products that even a doctor would use. It took a few years of R & D to develop ingredients and manufacturing methods, and Karen herself became a bonafide chemist. Every product has always been made with ingredients that meet or exceed the highest bar, the EU.
For many years, the two have made custom private labeled products for doctors, salons, the world’s largest retailer (hint: W), multi-level marketing companies, big and small. Today, their focus is solely on their own brands as seen here and many more to follow. In every multi-tasking product, you really have over 22 years of engineering excellence at a reasonable price. Everyone talks Clean Beauty today, this duo have been walking that walk for over two decades.
