Today, Atolla is 1 year old! This time last year, our small team of 4 crowded around a single table to watch our years of hard work go live. We were nervous, excited, and extremely proud of the Atolla system we built, which included custom serums, at-home skin testing, and a patented feedback loop. Essentially, we had created an entirely new way to think about skincare.
In the last year, I’ve watched our team and our company grow into something truly inspiring. Together with the Atolla community, we have advocated for major change in the skincare industry by normalizing real, unedited skin – because there is no such thing as “perfect” skin, only healthy skin. Atolla represents a new frontier for skincare product development, where formulations are developed for people’s unique and diverse needs, not for skin types.
I want to personally thank you for supporting our mission to help people feel more confident in their skin and their skincare. I’m looking forward to another year of skin stories and imagining the future of skincare, together.
