Our founder, Nic, struggled with acne since his teens and was always self-conscious about his skin. At the age of 29, he'd pretty much given up hope at finding a cure for his acne.
He was tired of constantly trying products and medications that just didn’t work and always feeling like his skin wasn't good enough.
Then one day, Nic’s grandmother sent him a cream containing a mystery ingredient.
Nic was sceptical at first, after trying so many acne treatments that failed to work. But, after using it for just a few days, the results were incredible.
His blemishes disappeared, his scarring began to heal, and his skin felt soft and hydrated.
Nic quickly realised that he'd come across an incredibly powerful ingredient and he wanted to know more.
After a long search, Nic eventually tracked down the person who’d made it. He was a scientist in the North of England who had been practising mixing things together for 30 years.
One day, he mixed these two ingredients together (Silver and Chitoderm) and bonded them in a way that no one else had, finding it had incredible healing and anti-bacterial properties.
He knew it was something, but he didn’t know what.
So, he started trying to make it work in water processing to clean water but it didn’t work as it was just too expensive to do on any sort of scale.
Whilst they were testing it, he and everyone else noticed that their skin was becoming so much smoother and more hydrated. Any inflammation, cuts or scars were healing at a much faster rate. So they decided to try it in skin care.
They had started selling it locally and that’s when Nic found him.
Nic said he thought more people would want to hear about this and wanted to help him spread the word.
So in 2018, a partnership between the two was formed and 47 Skin was born.
But Nic wanted to go one step further.
After so many years suffering with his skin, he didn't want to be just another skin care brand telling you what to buy.
He wanted to help people feel good about themselves, not only with products that work, but with a message that made them feel good, no matter what they were going through.
That's why our skin positivity message is so important to him and to everyone who works for 47 Skin.
