So who are we? and why did this amazing journey begin?
Every chapter of life has an origin story, an experience that led us to a decision or a place. The start of ONE SUMMER is no different and whilst we are driven by beautiful products as our passion, it is equally matched by our heart for people and enabling them to live their best lives.
We love, love, love product but sometimes struggled to find product that was right for us. We wanted luxury in a sustainable form, we wanted vegan formulations that were good for us and the environment, we wanted natural formulations and we wanted it to be affordable, and we wanted our brand to mean something, to have purpose.
We think it’s better to show the real story. Don't get me wrong I love Instagram, Tik Tok and other Social channels, but we also see that it can give a version of life that is somehow not the full story. People will sometimes feel the same about our instagram, but when we started working on ONE SUMMER with some industry experts we made a point of the fact that we wanted to bring joy to people, we wanted to bring a feeling of summer in all we do, hence the name. We hope it feels like that to you too.
We are just two sisters living on the Mornington Peninsula in Australia. I am Daisy, the older sister (I would say wiser but Matilda will read this and it’s probably not exactly true!). Like so many families we have been touched by mental health issues and we want to do something about it. With our brother and our dad, we set out to make our ultimate skincare brand. Dad has worked in the beauty industry for over 20 years, including being GM at one of Australia's leading Social Enterprises.
Put simply we want to make a success out of our passion for beauty products to bring the best out of people's natural beauty and so that we can fund mental health support programmes. We have set up ONE SUMMER to give $1 for every product we sell to groups supporting those with mental health issues, starting with reachout.org Our focus in this season is to help those moving from child services into adulthood as there is a huge need here. We are so very grateful for each of you that supports this indirectly by buying and using our products.
So there you have it, a brand that is more than just beauty, started by sisters who want to make a difference without compromise. Thanks for reading and we hope you like what you see. Hope to meet you soon
We hope you love it like we do,
Peace and Love
