Company: Graydon Skincare
Location: Toronto, ON
If you live in Toronto, perhaps you’ve heard of Graydon Skincare. I was lucky enough to come across the brand as I was researching skincare brands in Ontario and then I got even luckier when I got to meet Graydon herself. I met with Graydon over a cup of warm cocoa-ey drink that she made for me. As I watched her mix beautiful raw ingredients into a delicious concoction, I knew that this woman knew her stuff! It’s clear that the brand she’s created was created with passion for raw beneficial ingredients and knowledge of the benefits of a plant-based diet that is part of Graydon’s lifestyle.

My name is Maria Velve, a certified make-up artist and green beauty expert on a mission to:
Connect you with clean and effective products made right here in Canada, and Teach you how to use them in a way that makes you feel fresh, confident and – most importantly – like yourself.
I do this through makeup consultations, lessons and application in Toronto (and beyond) an online shop where you’ll find a curated selection of my favourite make-up and self-care products and tons of free resources and reviews.
All of the products I use, recommend and sell are made in Canada from natural (and often local) ingredients – some using recipes passed down through generations. I recommend only those I’ve thoroughly researched, tested and fallen in love with.
