For Aly (short for Alyona), skincare has always been an important self-care ritual. And she believes that you can always buy a new dress, but never new skin. So it should not be surprising that Aly has tried nearly every skincare product on Earth – well, not really but it certainly feels like that to her!
A chance introduced Aly to making natural skincare products and being a researcher at heart and an explorer in life, Aly dove in into the fascinating world of botanical skincare. She completed a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation at the world’s leading accredited Organic Cosmetic Science School, Formula Botanica and spent countless hours experimenting and creating products in her cosmetics lab.
Early in her studies, essential oils and their health benefits sparked Aly’s interest. Being a tertiary-qualified mental health professional (check out her Mornington private practice here!), Aly decided to incorporate emotional aromatherapy in her high-performance skincare formulations, so that the products work both for the skin and the mind.
And this is how ALY’S. Skincare for the Soul was born.
