About Us

Our vision was to provide EFFECTIVE, UNIQUE, PREMIUM, LUXURY skincare that was also natural, safe and non-toxic.  We knew there was natural skincare out there and also luxury skincare, but nothing that provided both of these qualifications in a way that didn't feel like a sacrifice of one or the other.  We want women to feel that they are making their skin more beautiful, youthful, radiant but without sacrificing peace of mind and health. 

After a decade of a friendship Lauren and Amoreena had gone through years of struggling with acne prone skin. Together, they had tried all types of products: expensive, mass, organic, prescription and cosmaceuticals, loaded with harsh chemicals, and even concoctions prepared at home, such as coconut oil. They changed their diet and cleansed and cut out dairy and still they faced irritated and angry skin. And, unfortunately, nothing showed lasting results.  Lauren started to see real results with Saimdang Cosmetics’ line of natural, herbal-medicinal based products, which she shared with Amoreena. When both of them saw AMAZING results, they were hooked!! Coincidentally, Saimdang Cosmetics, was exploring the idea of launching its premium, natural, herbal medicinal based skincare products in the United States.  Saimdang, founded over 20 years ago, was one of the first natural skincare companies based on herbal medicinal formulations.  This began the start of SMD Cosmetics International.

Shveta was a natural fit, as well.  Lauren and Shveta's friendship was instant and spanning over a decade, they always knew that they would do "something" together.  Shveta started using the products and instantly fell in love with them.  Shveta's skin being so sensitive and allergic to most of the products she had tried, she had almost given up on finding skincare that worked for her, until she tried SMD.  With her successful business career and being a busy mom, she felt she would not have time for time-consuming skincare routines, but she was shocked at how little time it really took to take care of your skin!   Lauren, Amoreena and Shveta, together, are proud to launch SMD in the United States.
