Every precious drop in each formulation is a distillation of over two decades of Mary's wisdom and expertise in holistic
anti-aging and cellular dermal vitality.

Mary is the formulator and founder of Mary Allan Skincare, a collection of premium skin care products founded in 2010 in Los Angeles California.  A leading authority on skin health and wellness Mary served as Vice President of Global Education for the International Dermal Institute.  Considered the gold star of post-graduate education for skincare professionals, Mary had oversight of 68 countries and 32 institutes worldwide, the International Dermal Institute is also the research and development arm for Dermalogica. Prior to that Mary was Vice President of Jurlique Retail Group USA. 

Mary was fortunate to get her start working for the “trail blazers” of the natural skin care movement, Anita Roddick, the founder of the body shop and the founder of Jurlique. Anita instilled in Mary the value of ethical ingredient sourcing and to this day Mary is dedicated to supporting Fair Trade and Women’s Cooperatives when purchasing her cold pressed plant oils. Mary is formally trained in skin care formulation, holistic aromatherapy and advanced medical esthetics. 

"When creating my formulations it’s always about skin vitality and not a false promise that skin care can magically erase wrinkles. Just like the quality of food matters for your overall health and wellbeing the same is true for the ingredients you apply to your skin." - Mary
"I don’t use “masking agents” otherwise known as optical illusions, silicones, plastics, mineral oils or toxins because these ingredients do not create skin vitality. Instead you will find breakthrough anti-aging actives, dermal-nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help reduce inflammation and leverage your own biological capabilities to nurture healthy, radiant skin." - Mary

Both inspired and appalled by common practices found within the skin care industry Mary decided to create her own products that are in line with her philosophy and vision for clean beauty.  Combining her expertise in both anti-aging dermal nutrition and holistic aromatherapy Mary quickly gained a reputation among decreeing Women who share the same approach and philosophy towards beauty. 

Mary’s signature collection is driven by the precision of breakthrough ingredients that truly make a difference on the skin and eliminating all of the other useless filler ingredients that are commonly used to create the illusion of "the more actives the better". Mary doesn’t follow the latest skin care trends for the sake of it and instead chooses ingredients that are clinically proven to rejuvenate the skin.
Mary remains close to the world of botanicals traveling to the regions where she hand selects the precious botanicals specific to each product. Mary has spent over a decade building relationships with all of her suppliers of raw materials and first fell in love with the Rose De Mai flower while studying aromatherapy in Grasse France, it can be found in her Rose 24 Collection.
"Age & beauty reunite when we decide to live in the present moment."
