geoskincare creator, penny vergeest began researching the beneficial properties of natural minerals, essential oils and pure extracts and their effect on the body and skin while training as an aesthetician, this research led to the formulation of the geoskincare range.
Penny’s passion for holistic wellness is evident is every aspect of the business and the products themselves:
"I have a real belief in the fact that skincare products go much deeper than just the physical. Customers who suffer from skin disorders, breakouts and poor skin are affected in many ways emotionally and physically and this has a big impact on other aspects of life. I have a real passion for educating customers on how to look after their body and skin and offer practical steps to achieving total wellness. I am also inspired by helping consumers understand which ingredients should be in their skin and body care products, and which ingredients should not! I believe there is no room in this industry for ingredients or messages that are toxic and I am committed to producing skin and body care products which are healthy, not harmful."
geoskincare has been available exclusively in health spas and beauty salons for the past 10 years. In 2010, the geoskincare range was reformulated to achieve organic certification and is now available at pharmacies, beauty salons and natural/organic living stores around the world.
