MeridaSKIN originated as the solution to the personal skin struggle of its Founder, Shannon Johnson. Shannon is a certified nurse practitioner, and her own facial skin condition (rosacea) failed to improve with the standard medical approach. After a decade without improvement, she pursued training in cosmetic formulation. That eye-opening education led her to start from scratch. It yielded the inaugural line of skincare essentials that avoid irritants, allergens, and pore-cloggers, and is particularly helpful for the microbiome disruptions commonly seen in rosacea and acne.
An early prototype of the MeridaSKIN Foaming Facial Cleanser is what got Shannon’s face on the road to recovery. The Cleanser has hero ingredients Manuka honey and tea tree oil and is the place many customers start (if not with the Essentials Trio). The MeridaSKIN Foaming Facial Cleanser is EWG VERIFIED® and Leaping Bunny Certified. MeridaSKIN is thrilled to honor the work and achievements of the Oscar nominees and presenters.
