Hi! I’m Julie, the head skincare enthusiast at FloraSkinlab.
Where it Started
As part of a big Cuban family, whenever we would gather, we feasted on delicious food. My mom, grandmother, and aunts were always so busy cooking in the kitchen that they barely had time to sit down and eat with us before they got up to start clearing and cleaning.
My mother and grandmother worked tirelessly, not only at the family gatherings but every day. I never saw them stop to take time for themselves. When I became a mother, it was important to me that I carved out “me time” every day so I could bring my best self to my family.
The Love for my Family is how I got interested in Skincare
When my eldest son was young, he developed itchy, dry skin patches. After trying all the creams and soaps available on the market, I decided to start making my own. I was thrilled when the natural ingredients helped his skin. We’ve never gone back to commercial soaps as a result.
From this success, my mom asked me if there was something that could help the sensitive skin on her hands from washing dishes. I started to make lotion bars to help protect her skin because nothing else was working. I researched the ingredients and formulated my own recipes. Still to this day when she starts to notice her skin getting dry, we use these bars and it heals them up nicely.
As you can imagine, once I started seeing that I could create some of my own skincare products, my fascination with developing my own formulas to make better products for myself and family grew.
That leads to where Floraskinlab is today
Soon I was enrolled in cosmetic chemistry courses and workshops so I could learn how to make organic products. I soon realized that organic and vegan does not always translate into the best skin care.
It was a game-changer when I discovered Korean skincare routines because the science they incorporated blew me away!
With ever-changing technology, I decided to partner with a lab so that I could create skincare products with the active ingredients to give you the results you’re looking for.
Today, I’ve embraced the fact that I am a skin care enthusiast with a full line of products designed for all skin types. They work individually or as a set so that you get the maximum results.
Whether you’re looking to soothe your dry skin, gently exfoliate without scratching, or balance your oily skin, we have something for you.
Together, let’s give you a minimal skincare routine that leaves your skin glowing and makes you feel pampered.
