Hi There!

Natalia Monnard and Sarah Pein Female Entrepreneurs

We are Nats and Sarah, founders of SQIN Ø, the all-natural, artisanal, sustainable cosmetic products exclusively made in Switzerland that honor your body, mind, and soul as well as our beautiful planet. 

 

Together, we are on a mission: helping our customers make healthier and better-informed decisions about what they put on their skin, by providing them with the most nutritious, simple, and luxurious treatments out there with a zero-greenwashing-tolerance policy and 100% transparency approach, all while fostering a more sustainable lifestyle.

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and it can absorb a significant amount of any cosmetic we apply: this includes the good and the bad, which, in today's toxic-heavy beauty and personal care industry set-up, translates into a lot of chemicals going directly into our bloodstream.

 

Conventional, chemical-laden products can have an adverse impact on the natural processes our body goes through on a daily basis. 

After years of looking for high-quality, results-first cosmetics and skincare products that would deliver a healthy skin without parabens, aluminum, petrochemicals, synthetic preservatives or any other of a long list of nasty ingredients, and being disappointed with the amount of greenwashing out there, we decided it was time to take matters into our own hands.

This is how SQIN Ø came to life!

SQIN ZERO BRAND LEAFS

 

Our SQIN Ø products are artisanal and produced on demand ensuring maximum quality and freshness ensuring we don't need any kind of preservatives.

 

We follow a skinimalism approach based on a less-is-more philosophy. This means that we use as few ingredients as possible so that our premium active components can be absorbed at the skin's maximum capacity.

We have started our mission by focusing on a product many of us use on a daily basis: deodorant. Over-the-counter brands may contain up to 12 harmful ingredients.

 

We created a product that is safe for humans all while delivering great results that surpass those of conventional deodorants.

We aim at using recyclable and reusable products. Being part of the Eco-Packaging Alliance Program, means that every order made by SQIN Ø is a tree planted.

We are excited to share with you products that we use every day, that we feel proud of and can stand behind, and will make YOU feel fabulous!

Meet Nats

Natalia Monnard Female Entrepreneur

 Chief Executive Officer 

Growing up in Mexico, I was always an advocate for the need to take better care of our planet, therefore often involved in environmental campaigns. I moved to Switzerland in 2011where I started my career in the financial industry and obtained my MBA degree. Additionally, my entrepreneurial mindset has taken me to advise start-ups and small companies.

My passion for sustainability topics means I am always on the lookout for healthy natural products that ensure humans coexist better with our planet, but it was not easy to find sustainable solutions that deliver a great customer experience.

SQIN Ø is the outcome of my experience in strategic business growth combined with my drive for a healthier living and a more sustainable lifestyle, creating a company that is in line with my values and vision for the future.

Meet Sarah

Sarah Pein Female Entrepreneur

 Chief Marketing Officer 

I was born and raised in Austria where, from a very early age, I learned to appreciate nature in my parents' house with its large garden. I especially loved my mother's vegetable garden which was living proof of what nature can achieve if we nurture it. At the age of nine, I decided to avoid meat and do my bit for climate protection.

 

Soon I became more and more interested in sustainability. From vegan living to natural cosmetics and glass straws, I tried everything possible. But there were always two things that bothered me: the excess of (mis)information and how inconvenient the offered solutions or alternatives were.

 

SQIN Ø is simple and works. For me, sustainability and naturality are not at odds with convenience and customer experience. This is exactly what I appreciate about SQIN Ø and what I want to pass on to our customers.
