MEET OUR FOUNDER
Hello lovely people!
My name is Gemma and I am the founder of Avocadeau. Firstly I’d like to say thank you so much for visiting our site and for your interest in Avocadeau!
I founded Avocadeau in 2017, mostly due to the frustration of not being able to find high street products that were suitable for my problematic skin (and my slight avocado obsession!). I have suffered with acne and sensitive skin from a young age – as I’m sure a lot of you know, this can really knock your confidence.
I started experimenting with blends of carrier and essential oils at home, and was lucky to quickly discover the amazing effects of avocado oil. Avo oil instantly absorbed into my skin, without leaving it feeling greasy, and kept my skin hydrated all day long. My degree in biochemistry left me wanting to know more about the science of why this incredible oil left my skin feeling so good – and after thorough research I decided to create my own skincare range, all based around avocado oil.
It has always been my mission at Avocadeau to provide products that you can trust in – using high quality, natural ingredients to create a beautiful range. I am also so proud to donate 10% of profits to our partner charity TAFCOM in Tanzania. TAFCOM is extremely close to my heart, having volunteered there for two months.
I hope you enjoy using our wonderful range of products!
