Hello World ... Meet Sandy
Sandy ~ animal lover
Sandy was an immigrant from Georgetown Penang, Malaysia, a beautiful multicultural country in Asia. It's known for its beaches, rain-forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultural influences. In order to pursue higher education in chemistry and art, Sandy moved to Wisconsin, one of the coldest states in the USA in her teen.
Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia
Sandy graduated from University of Wisconsin with a degree in chemistry and art. With academic stress and hormonal imbalance, Sandy suffered from hormonal acne and dry patches during many harsh winters in Wisconsin. Later Sandy moved to San Francisco for her graduate studies, she noticed the excessive sun exposure in California was causing her to have more freckles and hyper-pigmentation on her cheeks. Sandy spent all her paychecks on expensive skin care products. Unfortunately those products did not deliver the results she wanted, but caused her some skin allergies.

Skin issues & motivation
Sandy is allergic to synthetic fragrance and colorants in many skin care products. Most skin care companies would color their moisturizers, serums or toners to blue, purple or pink to boost up the sales, but these colorants serve no beneficial purpose in skin care. The harmful particles of synthetic colorants heavily burden our skin, which is the largest organ on our bodies.
Mad scientist mode
So Sandy utilized her knowledge in chemistry to formulate products in 2006 for her own use. After seeing immediate results, she later teamed up with many licensed estheticians for research studies (no animal testing since our test subjects were human.)
After 12 years, Sandy quit her full-time job in 2018 to focus on this growing company, Puppy Skin dot com. Our brand is an all nutrients skincare line formulated without synthetic colorants, fragrance, drying alcohol, parabens, formaldehyde releasers and animal testing. All products are made from scratch with potent ingredients and formula to help people with many skin issues.
Fragrance-free & colorant-free
Our products are free of synthetic dyes, mica and gemstones; they only show it's natural color and texture. More than 50% of our products are unscented; for certain formulas we use therapeutic grade absolute or essential oils to enhance the raw ingredients.

The formulations are well-balanced with the concept of dualism just like Yin and Yang. The plant-based ingredients and pharmaceutical ingredients are complementary, interconnected, and interdependent with each others, providing the best results to our clients.
Every product on Puppy Skin dot com serves it's own purpose, Sandy does not launch a product that she would not use on herself.
