MEET THE FOUNDER
At SKINREQUISITE, we are passionate about healthy living and the power of botanicals. Our founder, Kamila Starczewska, was raised in Poland and from an early age, she immersed herself in the world of natural remedies and holistic medicine. Kamila's knowledge of botanicals was passed down through generations, and she continues to study and explore the benefits of plants today.
As a child, Kamila learned valuable beauty secrets from her ageless beauty icon, her grandmother. She witnessed her grandmother's beauty rituals, which involved using natural ingredients straight from the earth. From using potato peels to remove age spots, chamomile to lighten hair, to exfoliating the skin with fresh strawberries and yogurt, her grandmother's cabinets were filled with "magical" potions.
Inspired by her grandmother's wisdom and armed with her own expertise, Kamila founded SKINREQUISITE in 2018. Our ecommerce store specializes in skincare products that harness the power of natural ingredients. We offer a range of effective solutions for various skin concerns, including our Vitamin C 18% Skin Booster, Bakuchiol Anti-aging Hand & Body Lotion, and Niacinamide Flawless Skin Serum Booster.

We believe that healthy and radiant skin is achievable through the right combination of science and nature. Our products are carefully crafted to provide visible results, helping you achieve the skin you've always desired.
