Michelle Sutton has been a registered pharmacist for over 20 years, her partner James is a practising optometrist who has over 20 years’ experience as a high street optician, Michelle’s personal interest in discovering allergy free make-up and skincare led them to multiple award winning beauty and cosmetics at NATorigin.
Michelle knows first-hand the challenges of being unable to wear cosmetics due to allergy or intolerance. In 2004, Michelle and James came across Contapharm, a small, family run, French company. They met with the pharmacists who developed the science of bio-inertia over 30 years ago in France, the home of many well-known cosmetic companies. She was so impressed with the company and the way they had responded to their customer requests for a hypo-allergenic yet natural beauty range that she decided to stock NATorigin.
Michelle says, “Once I switched and began using this range, my skin immediately settled down and I realised what a relief it was to have normal looking and feeling skin again. I no longer suffer from spots, blotches and breakouts so I realised there was something in it. I knew it would appeal to women with eczema, rosacea, dry or sensitive eyes, blepharitis and those who wore lenses”
