ELSI FOUNDRAISING SKINCARE MICROBIOME ENTREPRENEUR WOMEN BUSINESS STARTUP CLEAN BEAUTY

I can’t believe it’s been a year now since ELSI was launched. We were able to reach many company milestones, and we are so proud of the work we have done for skincare and what is to come. For the ELSI 1 Year anniversary I wanted to reflect on some of our milestones and what they mean for me.

MAY 2019

LAUNCH Super Moisturizing Serum

What an accomplishment!  
I’ve been developing over the winter the very first ELSI product: Super Moisturizing Serum. It's the first product of my Science-backed skincare line. 
With only 3 ingredients, it solves skin issues (hormonal, sensitive skin). Your skin is balanced, your Skin Microbiome nurtured. It’s the perfect serum to start Over your skin from bad routines and ingredients that damage the Skin-ecosystem
Can be used as morning & evening moisturizer but also as a makeup base.

JULY 2019

First Round FUNDRAISING

As we are a research company first and a beauty brand second, raising capital was a priority in order to start our product development and open our lab. It was not easy to raise as a scientist and foreigners but fighting for it was really worth it.
It was such a milestone for ELSI, it made the project a reality.
The ELSI journey could start with an amazing support...!

SEPTEMBER 2019

ELSI METHOD

Few years ago I met Karin, a Certified Yoga Teacher (RYT). We realized that we shared the same passions and interests: Yoga, skincare & wellness. Convinced that facial massage and relaxing exercises have a lot of benefits for skin health, I really wanted to develop the wellness dimension of the brand. We truly believed that there’s more to skin health than just products. It's about how you care for your body and mind overall.
That’s why we developed the ELSI Method™.
With the ELSI Method™, we're unveiling a holistic approach to skincare that integrates wellness with science-driven skincare.
We have developed a sequence of different facial gestures and exercises that support the efficiency of our Serum along with multiple benefits

LAB OPENING

What a big step for ELSI! 
We now have our own laboratory! As we are based in San Francisco we decided to open our lab in the same city. In that way, I can move between the office and our lab as often as I can! 
Our lab is the place we create our tough and gentle formulas.
We test the texture and stability of our formulas and develop new products!
We develop new products thanks to our customers' feedback to create very best formulations that are respectful for the Microbiome and fit your needs. In this place, I’m in my element, I feel comfortable and love using science to create skincare products! 
It’s unique to be able to own our lab, no intermediaries, transparency

The TEAM is getting BIGGER! 

As ELSI was growing fast I needed to get the family bigger

FEBRUARY 2020

1st US Microbiome-friendly Skincare Line

Few months ago, ELSI became the first US skincare brand to be deemed as Microbiome-Friendly, by MyMicrobiome (MMB), the only independent certifier in the world concentrating on the impact of beauty products on the microbiome. 
This news was so meaningful for me, as I worked so hard to create tough & gentle products that truly respect our Microbiome. 
As an upstart skincare brand, this certification:
1) proves ELSI’s commitment to creating gentle skincare that holds up to the toughest standards
2) allows us to showcase our credibility among small and large players in the cosmetics industry
But most of all - it brings us one step closer to our mission, to end the epidemic of increasingly sensitive and reactive skin, by protecting the rich and unique ecosystem that lives on it - the microbiome.
