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. Mary’s skin care formulations are the result of over two decades of expertise in alternative plant medicine, cosmetic formulation and anti-aging dermal nutrition. Prior to founding her own company Mary served as Vice President of Global Education for the International Dermal Institute where she had oversight of 68 Countries. Considered the gold star of post-graduate education for skincare professionals, 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. 

In the early years while in college Mary worked at a  pharmacy where she was inspired  by her customers that were looking for a more natural approach to common skin concerns and this is when Mary started creating her own natural remedies. After college Mary embarked on five years of training in alternative medicine of aromatherapy, skin care formulation and advanced medical esthetics. Mary was fortunate to get her start working for Anita Roddick, the founder of the body shop. 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.

"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 dermal-nutrients, patented peptides, vitamins and minerals that help reduce oxidative stress and leverage your own biological capabilities to nurture healthy, radiant skin." - Mary

In 2010 Mary decided to turn her custom blends into a full time business. 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 ingredients that truly make a difference on the skin and eliminating all of the other “toxic masking agents” that are commonly used within the skin care industry. Mary doesn’t follow the latest skin care trends for the sake of it and instead chooses ingredients that are proven to get the job done.
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."
