Karee Laing, TEN Skyncare Founder + CEO
I began my skincare journey at the age of 10 when I had chronic breakouts with stubborn cystic acne. I remember visiting my dermatologist for the first time and my recommended course of treatment included routine steroid injections into my face. I was always self-conscious and insecure about who I was, the color of my skin, and my beauty. Even today, I struggle with being myself in my own skin.
In 2018, I had to learn how to fall in love with myself again after being a full-time entrepreneur for over five years. I was tired, burnt out, and deeply lacking self-care. I wanted to pamper myself, to feel like me again, and I became obsessed with finding good, clean stuff—I wanted to the reduce toxins in my body and use simple ingredients—all the things my Jamaican heritage had once taught me.
So, after months of working on myself, struggling with eating healthier, adult breakouts, dry/dull skin, and finding balance between my personal and professional life, I began thinking about creating a line of skincare products I could also use.
I’ve purchased products that range from a few bucks to several hundreds of dollars, and the one thing I’ve realized is that what our skin and bodies truly need is rest and care with clean, pure products—products that are truly the simplest and best for your skin type.
This is why I created TEN Skyncare. Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, or even 60s and suffering from oily, combination, or dry skin, natural ingredients is the answer. Natural, pure, high quality ingredients are simply good for you inside and out. Our products are non-toxic, natural, and 100-percent cruelty-free. My mission is to always source the best ingredients, to use only the highest-grade of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential oils. Every ingredient has a purpose and none of our ingredients or products are tested on animals.
By working directly with beauty labs and manufacturers that produce clean, organic, and vegan skincare ingredients, I’ve been able to hand-select all products found in our TEN Skyncare line and also customize each one to fit our mission.
I know firsthand the downsides of entrepreneurship and having a busy schedule—stress, anxiety, not enough time for self-care, and not feeling good in your own skin. Our products are made to tackle each and every one of these issues, from taking time with our bath collection, or focusing on taking care of your skin, or simply relaxing with whimsical, refreshing scents.
