Welcome to Spadét!
I am the first person in my family to be born in America. Both of my parents immigrated from the Philippines to NYC where my mother worked as a chemist and my father as a small shop owner. I began creating Spadét products because my two year old daughter suffered from extreme eczema and sensitive skin. Drawing from my degree in biochemistry, along with the work I did in DNA sequencing at my previous company of eight years, and my personal experience with holistic healing modalities, I investigated the therapeutic properties of olives, herbs, and flowers. I was driven by my passion and positive results to help not only my daughter, but also others to solve various skin and scalp related problems. Over the years, I formulated all-natural products for the whole body, making them robust and effective at calming skin irritation, preventing discomfort, reversing early signs of aging, and supporting overall health and wellness for the whole family.
Spadét all-natural products are made with nourishing, non-toxic ingredients from the garden. Our all-inclusive brand supports every skin type and addresses health and wellness concerns for the face, body and scalp through deep penetration into the skin.
Our proprietary core ingredients, saponified olive oil and olive glycerin, are highly bioavailable due to their chemical structure. They are designed to allow nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants to be absorbed into deeper layers of skin, promoting cell rejuvenation and healthier looking skin. They are also gentle and emollient thereby protecting the skin microbiome.
My goal is to offer high value with concentrated products made with pure all-natural ingredients, a luxurious feel, and natural aromatherapy scent (or unscented) that instantly delivers comfort. With so many people developing skin sensitivities to chemicals, allergens, synthetic fragrances, stress and poor health, I strive to build a brand you can trust to be safe, non-toxic, and effective; a complete line of products that are better for you and the environment, to help protect against pain and discomfort, and restores balance to your skin and in your lives.
My efforts toward sustainability go back to the early 90's when I worked for CALPIRG during summers while attending UC Santa Cruz. I remember going door to door as a canvasser spreading the word to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and collecting donations. I believe that sustainability is living consciously to protect the earth's resources in order to stabilize the Earth. It starts with caring about yourself and doing your part to make the world a better place.
Let's move toward a healthier, happier future together!
