Exentrique is a brand that recognises the importance of making people feel included. Growing up with Eczema, I was never able to use the same products as my friends and to be honest, I was embarrassed! Even at 22, I can’t find products that tick all the boxes AND have a good impact on my skin. Exentrique is a hypoallergenic & cruelty free, gender neutral skincare brand for the majority.
I know how it feels to be conscious of your skin. The emotional scars are there and they are real. I soon realised I was not alone with these feelings. 1 in 8 UK adults have suicidal thoughts in relation to body image. The more i looked into this, the more I realised how unsustainable it is. I've learned a lot about myself and why I was so impacted by my skin which is what has inspired me to launch Exentrique.
It is no secret that there is a link between mental health and our skin. Being bombarded with images of radiant, glowing skin can skew our perception of what is normal, causing socially constructed beauty standards that are piling on the pressures. We have a moral obligation to protect people from damaging marketing which is why we have a #BeExentrique campaign. All our products have a Be Exentrique message which means we are not just words. We will donate 10% of profits to causes inline with our values which are mental health support, gender equality and less inequalities.
We will use the money we raise to manufacture the first run of products and launch.
