Revealing the Hero within

Blemishes happen, dark spots happen, rosacea happens. Issue-prone skin is human, and it can often feel entirely out of our control. We’re here to help put the power back in your hands. Whether you’re looking to prevent, treat, or repair – we create gentle, effective solutions that help your skin fight back; so you can open up, not cover up.

The Hero of this story is you, we’re here to help you reveal it – one solution at a time.

Ingredients. Matter.

It’s hard to trust new products when you have sensitive skin. It’s why we care so much about the ingredients we use (and the ones we choose not to use).

Our approach is: whatever we make needs to work with your skin, never against it. So we restrict over +2,400 ingredients that could cause irritation; we call it being consciously clinical.

It’s this thought that leads us to innovate away from the stripping and the purging and into new territory – a gentler territory that gives you back control over your skin.

We started with a patch...

and then we went deeper.

We started with a patch...

Hero began in 2017 when I had yet another pimple emergency, but my sensitive skin had reached a breaking point with the harsh acids of the world. So I went looking, and found my issue wasn’t just my issue – a lot of people felt just the same.

Why wasn’t there a solution that worked with the skin, not against it? The stripping, the purging, the resurfacing, the ‘wait two weeks’ before the redness goes away. There had to be a better alternative.

and then we went deeper.

And so Mighty Patch was born. A gentle hydrocolloid patch I originally found in South Korea, that works with the skin to minimize pimples without stripping or agitating them. Just a patch, and time.

Mighty Patch may have started the conversation, but we had so much to do from there. Acne, rosacea, and dark spots aren’t going away – but the stigma around how we talk about them, and most importantly how we treat them, can. So we set out to do just that.

Now we’re here, 30+ products later, all created to treat, prevent, and repair – born out of the idea that got us started: gentle, effective solutions that give the power back to you and your skin.

You’re already the hero of your own skin, we’re just here to help you reveal it.
