The Meaning Behind "ÂME"
(am) noun, feminine
1. soul; spirit; heart; essence
Our Humble Beginning
While in college, I suffered from eczema for the longest until I began creating natural skincare products in my college kitchen. After using my creations, I noticed an improvement in not only my skin but also in my friends’ skin after using my products. Initially, I was apprehensive to start my business, however, with the encouragement of my ambitious boyfriend Sacha, I dived in headfirst and ÂME was born (pronounced [ah-m].
I created my small business called ÂME SKINCARE to solve skin problems varying from eczema, hyperpigmentation, dryness, acne, and more. Given my interest in pursuing dermatology, I created the brand for people with sensitive skin who want to avoid harsh ingredients in their skincare. I put my soul into my craft hence the name ÂME, meaning “soul” in French.
Moreover, I enjoy researching various ingredients to experiment with in products. It was on a late-night research binge when I found a passion for essential oils and their use in skincare. In the spring of 2019, I conducted and presented my independent research study on The Effects of Essential Oils on Stress, Anxiety, and Cortisol Reduction. After learning their many benefits, I continue to incorporate them into my recipes. While creating these products, I take the time to research every ingredient carefully. This is because I want to ensure that none of the components would cause allergic reactions or skin damage. After extensive and continuous research of emulsifiers, plant oils, ceramides, essential oils, fragrances, etc., I was able to settle on a set of ingredients for my products where I felt confident that these ingredients would not cause injury to the users and would be beneficial.
I am also a recent graduate of the University of Central Florida; here I earned my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences Pre-Clinical. Since graduation, I have been pouring my energy into my business to blend the knowledge I have gained over the past four years with my passion for effective skincare.
