ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hello, my name is Annabelle Santos. I am the first person in my family to be born in America. Both of my parents immigrated to New York City in the 70's 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 gut related problems. Over the years, I have formulated innovative self-care regimens to support a healthier lifestyle and well-being for the whole family.
My goal is to offer high value with concentrated products made with pure all-natural ingredients, a luxurious feel, and that effectively solves problems, with safety and transparency. With so many people developing skin sensitivities to chemicals, allergens, synthetic fragrances, stress and poor gut health, I strive to build a brand you can trust. Our complete line of products that are better for you and the environment, to help protect against pain and discomfort, and restore balance to your skin, gut and daily life.
In the early 90s, I embarked on a journey toward sustainability, working for CALPIRG during my summers at UC Santa Cruz. Picture a young canvasser, going door to door, impassioned by the message of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and rallying support for a cause that would shape the future.
Fast forward to today, and my belief in sustainability burns brighter than ever. It has evolved beyond a mere concept, transcending into a way of life—an embodiment of conscious living, driven by the desire to protect our Earth's precious resources. I am reminded that every action, no matter how small, holds the potential to make a profound impact.
At its core, sustainability emanates from a deep-rooted care for oneself and an unwavering commitment to creating a better world. It beckons us to recognize the interconnectedness of our actions and their consequences, inspiring us to be custodians of change. Let us all become agents of positive transformation, a guardian of our Earth's future.
When we advocate for ourselves and take responsibility for our actions, we can pave the way for a brighter tomorrow—a world where harmony between humanity, equality, and nature no longer divides us.
Let's move toward a healthier, happier future together!
