Loa Skin was born out of the need to empower people to overcome their skin adversity and claim their inherent right to natural beauty.

We’re a team of humans rambunctious enough to take on what we like to call “big beauty” and challenge our own beliefs when it comes to what we put on our largest organ; our skin. For years, we ourselves struggled with acne, eczema and Cheilitis; which you may know takes a blow to your self-esteem — no matter what your age.

We had used everything from luxury and drug store skincare to pharmaceutical-grade tubes of wishful thinking. Frustrated, we set out on a journey to question everything we were told (read: marketed to) about skincare. After endless months of reading the latest scientific studies regarding skin health, we landed upon a pretty major discovery regarding the use of specific fatty acids to alleviate inflammatory skin conditions; just like the ones we had.

From there we began formulating, or more like concocting, in Spencer’s parent’s kitchen. We wanted to use natural botanicals to execute the science we had discovered. Long nights, lots of Pyrex measuring cups, and using ourselves as lab rats later — Loa Skin was finally born. An entirely botanical product developed for people like us, who want to live their lives without skin worries. Four years into our business, we now have two products and a small team.

Thank you for being a part of our journey.

Frequently asked questions

What makes Loa different?

Utilizing the latest scientific research, we take years crafting and testing each of our product formulations for efficacy. We focus on the recovery and optimization of skin health.

Are you sustainable?

While It's extremely difficult for a skincare brand to become fully sustainable, we've made some important strides in this direction.

Our shipping materials are almost entirely made of paper, and our glass bottles are fully recyclable. In terms of our formula, we don't use any ingredients derived from animals or palm oil, which come from some of the most environmentally destructive industries on Earth.

We also purchase 1 tree for every product sold, as well as offset the carbon footprint of shipping packages to customers through Ecologi.

Visit our sustainability page for more information.

Does your formula contain nut ingredients?

Our formula is completely free from all nut and nut-derived ingredients!

Will your product break me out?

No way Jose! Botanical Beauty Elixir prevents and helps to eliminate existing breakouts due to its high concentration of essential fatty acids and saw palmetto berry, which work by normalizing the skin's sebum production.

Is your formula safe for sensitive skin?

Yes, it was designed especially for sensitive skin. As calendula and gotu kola are some of its main ingredients, these provide powerful soothing properties to the skin, helping to eliminate redness and irritation you may be experiencing from other types of products.

What is the shelf life of your product?

Our Elixir has a shelf life of 12 months after opening.
