Marie Veronique is a small but rapidly growing skincare company who delivers superior, nontoxic skincare drawing on nature's genius and the brain of science through innovative formulations. Achieving optimal skin health and healing real skin issues drive us to produce safe products that truly work.
Our founder, Marie-Veronique Nadeau, is a chemist who founded Marie Veronique in 2002. An inventor at heart who suffered from teenage acne, she was moved to create her own products when she could find nothing on the market that was clean and effective to address her rosacea. From there, she went on to develop a line for acne and was one of the first to formulate a non-nano zinc oxide sunscreen. She continues to lead the way towards safe yet effective skincare, determined to move an industry ensconced in hype into the realm of science. She holds degrees in Math and Science, trained as an esthetician, and is a former high school chemistry teacher.
Our products vary from natural oils to water-based serums across a range of cleansers, mists, face oils, serums and masks and although we are a small Berkeley business our products have been featured in Oprah Daily, Vogue, HB Fit, New York Times, The Coveteur, Into The Gloss and the Wall Street Journal.
