Being a parent is never easy. It seems like there is always something to worry about. But I couldn’t believe I had to start worrying about my daughter’s acne breakout at the age of 6.

After suffering from acne as a teenager, I was determined to take care of this issue right away. After many years in the aesthetic industry and while working at a pharmaceutical skin care company, I went searching for appropriate skin care products for my 1st grader. I noticed many “great” products for babies and many “not so great” products for teens. I was concerned about certain ingredients that might be too harsh and others that were not effective enough. I started researching the makeup of children’s skin and how different ingredients and percentages can affect my child’s skin.

After consulting and talking to several laboratories here in the states, my wife and I decided to work with a team of chemists that could help us tackle this problem and come up with some safe yet effective treatments for our daughter’s acne. We also came up with some protocols for teaching our daughter to take care of her skin.  

Our little girl's acne went away!  Shortly after that, my wife and I decided to make these and other problem-solving products available for parent’s that might have similar issues.

Our daughter is now 8yrs old and takes care of her skin religiously by washing her face twice a day (morning and night)

We are striving every day to make an impact in the lives of children and their parents, by focusing on skin care education and by offering high quality, safe and effective solutions for kids and pre-teens (tweens).

While certain moisturizers do cause oil and acne, our Kidskin Calming Moisturizer is non-comedogenic, which means our ingredients are created to unclog pores or reduce acne.
