At Quench Botanica we aim to hydrate and nourish your skin with effective naturally derived skincare products, thereby simplifying your beauty regimen.
We use high quality, minimally processed ingredients that work. We avoid parabens, SLS, phthalates, unnecessary fillers, and trendy ingredients that have little proof of efficacy. Each ingredient is meticulously researched and our products are made in small batches, following good manufacturing practices to ensure maximum freshness and efficacy when it reaches you.
We are also working to present our products to you in sustainable, more eco friendly packaging. We’re not 100% there yet, but as a small business, we are striving to find solutions that keep the product integrity while helping the planet by not creating more plastic waste.
How it all started
Quench Botanica started as an idea that simmered for a few years in founder Vina Shih’s mind after she started reading articles about harmful chemicals that are in skin & hair care products. She became very concerned (i.e. paranoid) about the products her family was using, especially since she had two small kids. She searched out skincare products that were made with more natural & less harmful ingredients and was frustrated at the choices available. Having not found a truly satisfying solution, she eventually began to study formulating skincare products with cosmetic chemists and industry experts. She started with making lip balms, and quickly progressed to lotions, face cleansers, serums & moisturizers. After two years of studying and experimenting with countless formulations, Quench Botanica launched in 2016 and offers a range of skin care products that are not only safe but will simplify your beauty routine, make your skin glow, and feel good.
