Étymologie was founded by Raquela Cheesmond as a solution for her sensitive, acne-prone skin and the desire to create a sustainable, high-performance skincare line. Her inspiration and passion for sustainability, green beauty and science all started while studying biochemistry and food science at McGill University in Montreal. The well-being of our planet is very important to me, which is why I try to make sustainable choices on a daily basis and support companies that share these values. It’s also why sustainability is a key driver behind Étymologie, from the natural and organic ingredients we source to the infinitely recyclable glass bottles and carbon-neutral packaging we use. Étymologie is formulated in Montreal and manufactured in Rocky Mountain hugged Calgary, Alberta.
