On a mission to master her skin, Claudine founded Hello Sunday - Skincare made with ingredients that have a special purpose and all about effective results without sacrificing health. Handcrafted in Vancouver, BC all of their recipes are 100% natural, botanical, gluten free, vegan, and sustainable.
What values do you have that you believe you carried into your brand and company?
My husband and I are very passionate about living a zero waste lifestyle to the best of our abilities while raising two young boys. We are far from perfect but we really try to install mindfulness in everything we do. Hello Sunday will only ever use sustainable and natural ingredients. We house our products in glass jars/vessels and use use paper packaging when shipping out our items.
What’s your favorite part of creating your products?
I love smelling all the beautiful essential oils, dried flowers and mixing up different ingredients to come up with custom blends.
What inspired Hello Sunday?
I suffered with horrible acne rosacea on my face for most of my young adult life, as well as severely dry and cracked hands. I tried the medical route, but the prescribed medication just led to side effects which in turn led to taking more medication. I tried various skincare lines, pricey and affordable. When you don’t feel confident in your appearance, it trickles down to other aspects of your life. I had days when I didn’t want to make eye contact, I wanted to hid behind a hat or glasses.
About 5 years ago I decided to do some research, blend together some ingredients and see how my skin reacted. I had nothing but amazing results using the natural, botanical way. My complexion is far from perfect but it’s perfect enough for me!
What was your biggest hurdle in creating your own skincare line?
Figuring out how to create my own skincare line!
What advice would you give to someone who is making the transition to clean beauty and skincare?
Our skin is our largest organ, it absorbs everything! Luckily, nature gives us all the ingredients we need! You want to choose clean, natural and effective combinations for your skin type (no, coconut oil does not solve everything)! Find a skincare line that’s local. Talk to the maker/artist behind the brand.
To achieve your maximum glow, you need to have good gut health as well. Drink plenty of water and avoid too much sweets, fried foods and gluten.
