After 15 years working in the cosmetics field, Erika Fogeiro knew her way around the skincare aisle. But it wasn’t until she suffered from a bout of acne in her late 20s that she began testing natural alternatives and dietary supplements. Acutely aware of the beauty industry’s environmental impact, Erika decided it was time to act. In 2020, after months of research and development with a bioengineer, a phytochemist, a pharmacist, a naturopath, and a nutritionist, her brand Combeau launched its flagship product: The Skin Essential nutritional supplement. Made in France, this cutting-edge, no-frills formula uses a combination of sustainably and locally sourced active ingredients to achieve clinically proven results. The brand stands for total transparency, which is why you won’t find any superfluous ingredients on the label, just the best natural plant extracts that will nourish your skin from the inside.
