ABOUT PAXI SKIN CARE
Paxi Skin Care provides nourishing, effective skin care based on organic, natural ingredients along with the thoughtful addition of safe active ingredients, to help give you the kind of glow you get on a restful vacation.
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Paxi Skin Care is named after Paxi, the smallest island group within the Ionian Islands in Greece. Paxos, a tiny island of just 11 square miles, is the largest in the group. A place of beauty and mystery, the island is covered in ancient olive trees planted by the Venetians in the 14th century. Life is unhurried and the sea impossibly clear blue-green.
On a vacation in Paxos, inspired by the natural beauty surrounding her, Maggie, founder of Paxi Skin Care, decided to take her long-standing passion for skin care from dream to reality and create a skin care line. The line full of natural and organic ingredients from the land and the sea and a respect for the earth. When looking for a name for this new adventure, it was natural to name it after this special place where the idea was born - Paxi. To Maggie, Paxi Skin Care is a dream come true and she is honored to share this passion with you.
Paxi is based in Portland, Oregon in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Known for its pioneer spirit, the region is filled with makers of all sorts, each with a unique point of view and love of the natural beauty around us. With roots here, we at Paxi look near and far for inspiration and ingredients.
Made in small batches, our formulas feature natural, organic, wild-crafted, and select safe synthetic active ingredients that are vegan, free of parabens, gluten and petroleum ingredients to give you the results you seek, without the toxins and irritants you don’t want.
Skin, the largest organ of the human body, accounts for about 16% by weight of the average person’s body. Nourishing and protect our skin while avoiding harmful ingredients is important. Almost all products are packaged in glass jars and bottles to minimize negative impacts on our planet and our bodies. Unlike plastic, which can leach into the contents, glass is impermeable, non-porous and will not degrade over time and is 100% recyclable.
We strive to bring you nourishing and effective skin care, naturally. Glow with Paxi.
