Crawford Street Skin Care was founded in 2010 in downtown Toronto, after owner Gaelyne Leslie had a severe allergic reaction to a commercial brand of face moisturizer. Her background as an investigative journalist led her to research the long list of ingredients in her moisturizer and the whole experience left her both horrified, and with extremely sensitive skin. As a result, she started to experiment with natural ingredients, eventually coming up with a moisturizer that was not only 100 percent natural, but really worked! Friends noticed her glowing, smooth skin and soon she was whipping up cream for them too. Thrilled with the results, Gaelyne continued to experiment in the kitchen and soon had a small line of handcrafted skin care products. Every ingredient that goes into a product is carefully researched and chosen for it’s unique properties. Gaelyne is always looking for the best ingredients she can offer her customers, and she chooses free trade or organic products when available.
