How Obvs Was Born...
Born 29/05/2021 weighing approx 30g each.
I formulated this life changing skincare after suffering 2 miscarriages (after 2 rounds of IVF) just before the first COVID lockdown.
The mix of hormones gave me terrible adult acne. My confidence was at an all time low and I was fed up with spending loads of money on so called organic or vegan skincare that was not effective, so I decided to do my own research and create something that works, myself!
My first creation was The Intensive Skin Recovery Cream. After a lot of failures, I created a formulation that cleared up my acne within a week and since then it's changed so many people's lives. It not only helps with acne and psoriasis it also helps with eczema and best of all, nappy rash!
I am scientifically minded, but a hippy at heart, so when my friends and family pushed me to launch this as a business, I knew it had to be Organic, Biodegradable, Vegan and Sustainable... Obvs!
Obvs Skincare is my baby (I invested our 3rd round of IVF savings into the business), I hope you love her as much as I do.
About Sian Louise. MSc. BSc (Hons).
Unashamedly, I am a huge skincare nerd. I have spent a long time researching and furthering my education around skincare and the composition of organic ingredients. I am proud to say I have gained certification (distinctions) in the following subjects: Organic Skincare, Anti-Aging, Biochemistry, Aromatherapy, Environmental Management with more to come!
Coming from a very working-class background, I was the first in my immediate family to go to Uni and achieve a BSc and MSc. I was diagnosed with dyslexia whilst studying at Uni, it came as a huge shock but now I understand why I can’t dance and get lost everywhere I go! Stupidly, I let the label of being ‘dyslexic’ impact my aspirations and decided that it was impossible for me to be successful in academia and gave up on my dreams of becoming a Dr.
Since then, I have embraced my abnormalities and idiosyncrasies and found ways to overcome certain challenges and am now proud to be dyslexic - it is a gift rather than a curse.
