I’m Savy Guthrie, and I’m so glad you’re here!
With over 15 years of dermatology experience working as a Physician Assistant, I’ve been helping patients with all types of skin achieve the results they’re looking for so that they can truly love their skin. If fact, it was watching the struggles of my patients as they tried to navigate the natural product market that sparked Theoderma Skin Care...let me explain how.
It started back in 2011 when I began having some skin issues. I wasn't too concerned...after all, I had lots of tricks up my sleeve and as a skin care expert I had endless resources at my disposal. Plus, my colleagues were all sure it was rosacea.
Yet, despite everything I tried, NOT ONE prescription drug worked to clear my skin.
That’s when I turned to natural products for help. I tried product after product, but still I saw no improvement.
My skin was just as bad as when I had started. I couldn’t believe it. Why wasn't anything working?
That’s when I started researching and I discovered a startling truth…
So many of those products that call themselves natural were anything but pure. They were in fact hiding harsh chemicals that had been used to extract their ingredients from their sources or to preserve them. And, even though these chemicals were present in the final “natural” product, they weren’t included on the label.
It finally made sense why my skin wasn't clearing up.
That is when I decided I had to stop everything I was doing – and started formulating my own products in my kitchen, with no chemicals or harsh preservatives. I made sure that they were truly natural.
But day in and day out my patients would ask me what I used on my skin, and where they could get it. I realized then that there were more people out there, just like me, who wanted something different out of their skin care routine.
People who cared how the quality of the ingredients in their products, how they were sourced and who cared what the cost of animal farming was on the environment.
People who wanted gorgeous, amazing skin, and who were tired of being duped by false natural products.
That’s when Theoderma was born. Since our ethos is mindfulness and accountability, the name Theoderma seemed to be the perfect fit...coming from the Greek meaning God-Skin. (Theo=God and Derma=Skin) A little play on words as well since my son is named Theodore (meaning God’s Gift, again from the Greek) and we call him Theo!
Now, instead of my kitchen, we make each and every Theoderma product in an eco-certified laboratory on vegan dedicated equipment. We craft them in small batches using premium ingredients that are ethically farmed and we steam distill the botanical extracts on site. That ensures optimal freshness and purity, all without any harsh chemicals, ever.
Unlike other brands that merely write "Vegan" or "Cruelty Free" on their products, every Theoderma product has been certified by Vegan Action and Leaping Bunny- for cruelty free, vegan skin care you can trust.
With Theoderma, you can rest assured that the products you’re using on your skin are truly natural, combining a mindful balance of science and nature to achieve optimal outcomes for your skin.
I hope that you will try our products as we work to redefine natural and reawaken the healthy, amazing skin you were born with.
