It all began with a gift between two friends.
A homemade body scrub given as a Christmas present launched the idea, and in 2010 Boston-based Splurge Skincare was officially born by founders Christine and Kara. In addition to being teachers, they are both admitted “product junkies” who are always searching for the next best thing.
When the idea of creating their own line came up, they knew right away that there were two things they wouldn’t compromise on. First and foremost, their products had to perform. If they didn’t work, they wouldn’t sell them. Second, their products had to be natural and free of harmful toxins and chemicals. Christine and Kara were convinced that they could create products that not only worked better than anything else they had tried, but were also all natural.
Since they are both teachers, they spent many hours after work and on weekends researching and testing, and then researching and testing some more. They gave samples to friends who graciously provided us with detailed and honest feedback. The result is a line of products that not only work, but make you feel good about what you are putting on your skin.
When the founders were finally satisfied with their creations, they were still unsure of the name. Their philosophy was simple: People shouldn’t wait for a special occasion to treat themselves well, it should be something they do everyday. Their hope was that our products helped people to do just that.
So what to call it? Splurge.
Don’t wait for a special occasion to indulge, splurge on yourself today!
