So I'm going to start this blog post off right away with a question:
Who has ever heard of breadfruit? Because I had no idea what that was until I heard about Altilis Beauty.
This company is my jam, they are disrupting the cosmetic industry and they are all about embracing change. With all the different ingredients in our cosmetics today its hard to keep track of what is good or bad. We are constantly checking to see what we are putting on our face and what is in it. Does it have harsh chemicals? Is it paraben free? the list goes on.
I only use products on my skin that are good for my skin. I do my research and while I usually check my skin care, sometimes not all the ingredients in there is pure and good for my skin.
In my opinion and after testing out this skin care company I can proudly say that this company checks off on my list of Canadian, pure, ethical and effective!
Who is Altilis Beauty?

Who is the founder?
Company founder Kenna Whitnell first began experimenting with ingredients and formulations as a teenager searching for a natural solution for acne and dry and sensitive skin.
Her search led her to breadfruit, incredibly rich in unique and powerful phytochemicals with antioxidant, soothing and protective benefits for the skin. The compounds scavenge free radicals that damage and age skin, provide anti-inflammatory and UVB-protective properties and replenish the skin’s natural protective barrier for a glowing complexion.
Now a fourth-year biochemistry student at the University of Guelph, Kenna has developed a process to extract the active compounds from breadfruit flowers and has formulated a cleanser, serum and moisturizer for a simple, all natural three-step skincare routine. The InforEssense product line, launched December 2017, also feature other natural, beneficial ingredients like Gotu Kola, Honeybush, Aloe Vera and Trans-Resveratrol for additional rejuvenating effects.
Kenna sources breadfruit directly from microfarmers in Samoa, increasing the value of an important food crop and providing important economic, social and environmental benefits to their communities.
“Breadfruit has never been used before in skin care and it’s really rewarding hearing customers’ stories about the difference it is making,” she says.
The Company's Values
Altilis Beauty is all about transparency, innovation and sustainability and performance. I love that this company is all about the environment. They make sure that they are finding ways to actively seek renewable and sustainable sources for the company. They do everything the right way. They source only the best and pure ingredients from local farmers, they bottle all their products and everything is packaged and delivered with care JUST LIKE THEY USED TO. You know this stuff is amazing when you can use it on sensitive skin. My skin as y'all know is an angry skin so by using their products it makes my skin feel so soothed and happy. This stuff is GOLD. With organic plant based ingredients, age prevention, hypoallergenic and not tested on animals this company is literally "A" game in the books for me.
Again y'all know I'm all about packaging. I'm also all about recycling ( even though I have some major problems at home knowing what is recyclable HAHA). The packaging was one of the first things you see when you unbox your Altilis Beauty Products.
All of their products are boxed in chipboard packaging, made from 100% recycled paper.
Re-Using the Containers
Because of the nature of the airless pump containers, you do have the ability to refill the container after you have used all of the product.
To re-use the containers, first you’ll need to pop the top off of the container. Next, take a popsicle stick and push the base down to the bottom from the inside. Lastly, re-fill with the contents of your choice and pop the lid back on. Keep in mind that they come in travel friendly sizes so they would be great to refill with shampoo and conditioner for your next vacation!
Their mission at Altilis Beauty® is to provide skincare solutions that make you feel beautiful without compromising the lasting beauty of the world.
In conclusion, to say obsessed with Altilis Beauty is an understatement. I absolutely love discovering new company's especially ones that that are all around amazing and good for the environment. I am not even close to being fully environmental friendly in my life but for my beauty regime I think I'm doing a good job.
I brought my Altilis Beauty with me to Hawaii ( My pretend place of birth lol)
