A Note From Our Founder
I could not find products that improved my skin before I founded West of South. I have been working in molecular and cell biology for years and knew exactly why I was experiencing irritation and cystic acne that had relapsed after multiple isotretinoin cycles: many brands choose the cheapest ingredients, used generic formulating techniques from the 1970’s, didn’t investigate how their formulas affected skin, and then focused on marketing. By using premium, certified ingredients, advanced formulating techniques, and working closely with dermatologists, I have made skincare staples to add to your routine and achieve all your #skingoals!
