MEET OUR FOUNDERS

We are three women with very different backgrounds. Together, we’re a united force on a mission to unleash health and beauty from the inside out, every day.

THE DOCTOR

Dr. Amy Bader is passionate about helping patients feel great in their skin. She’s a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and the National University of Natural Medicine, where she is now an adjunct clinical faculty member. She is regularly featured in newspapers, radio and magazines as an expert in natural medicine and was a founding co-director of the National University of Natural Medicine’s Integrative Skin Care Clinic. Amy has private practices in Northern California and the Portland metro area, where she lives with her beautiful daughter.

A combination of goofball, science geek, and girly girl, Amy’s love of natural medicine is the foundation of everything we make.

THE CHEF

Elizabeth’s passion for food started early with mud pies in the backyard and has been a consistent outlet for self-expression, creativity, and connection. She earned a German Literature degree from Austin College and a Culinary Arts degree from Le Cordon Bleu College. Not one to take the direct route, her non-linear career path started in software development, training and consulting. She then chose to switch gears and pursue baking, but this time with food instead of mud.

Elizabeth is particular, in the best possible sense. Her appetite for flavor exploration and innovation constantly inspires us.

THE BIZ BRAIN

Bassima believes in the power of intersections in every aspect of life. She is Lebanese-American with roots in Cote d’Ivoire and considers herself a global citizen. She has an MBA from Babson College, and is a graduate of Queen’s University. In 2014, Bassima founded BHM Consulting to partner with organizations poised on the edge of business and social transformation. Most recently, she was the President of the Sara Blakely Foundation and also worked at Nike Inc. and other organizations in various roles in IT, Supply Chain and Strategy. Check out her TEDx Portland talk about the power of the ripple effect.

Bassima is an all-around badass (who didn’t want to say that, but we outvoted her). Her conscientious perspective on business is our driving force.

HAVE WE GOT A STORY FOR YOU.

We believe that collagen is an important food group (seriously, like vegetables). So we set out on a mission to create products that would easily and deliciously bring more collagen into our lives. Why? We simply couldn’t find anything that provided the skin-beautifying nutrition we craved, was easy to consume AND tasted ridiculously good.

In the beginning, we made SkinTē just for ourselves. Amy, the natural and herbal medicine doctor, had just gone through a divorce and wanted to “reboot.” She was seeking ways to enhance her skin, hair and nails like her grandmother used to do through nutrient-dense food.

To accomplish this, Amy handed her dear friend Elizabeth a pile of twigs, leaves, roots, berries, petals, and collagen (of course). Unlike Amy, Elizabeth refuses to eat things that taste like dirt. So with moxie, alchemy, and culinary intuition, Elizabeth set out to make it taste amazing. The two women locked themselves in the kitchen and went through countless iterations (for reals—over a thousand) until they got it just right.

This duo quickly became a trio when Bassima, the business brain, serendipitously entered their lives. She was taking collagen for her joints while recovering from back surgery, but wasn’t crazy about the taste or texture of collagen powders and bone broth. She complained about it to her doctor—who of course, happened to be Dr. Amy Bader. Amy shared the recipes Elizabeth had been working on. Bassima was elated—so she teamed up with Amy and Elizabeth to transform this passion project into a brand. SkinTē is the delicious result.

PHILOSOPHY

We believe real beauty starts from the inside out.

We create products that promote vitality and radiance.

We innovate at the intersection of food, beauty, and well-being.

That’s the short version.

Behind those sentiments is a larger mission: one that’s grounded in the idea that Beauty is Character. (Sound a little woo? Hear us out.) You see, we believe character is sexy and nothing is more beautiful than being true to who you are. And that starts with choice.

What you choose to value.

What you choose to believe.

And what you choose to consume every day, from food to ideas. They all directly impact how we show up and create change—for ourselves and others.

How will you show up today?
