FROM BRAZIL TO QUEBEC
Growing up in Brazil, Cristiane was surrounded by a rich and diverse variety of fruits and plants that were not only delicious but also very useful to treat various issues. Her mother is a big believer in the power of nature and would prepare all sorts of natural remedies out of plants, fruits, seeds, barks and roots, some of them grown in her own backyard.
Following her heart, she moves to Quebec in Canada, where she learned with her daughters, Alexandra and Marianne, the health benefits of a holistic approach to life, which later became an important part of the company’s philosophy – a beauty routine is an amazing way to engage in self-care and to find the right life balance by connecting mind, body and soul.
As Cristiane got into her late 40s, she started trying commercial Retinol-based skincare but with her sensitive skin, she never managed to find a product that would not cause her irritation. At the same time, her teenage daughters were also facing skin dryness and redness after using acne medication.
After reading the ingredients in the product labels, they realized they were mainly synthetic chemicals, some of them even considered carcinogens, which meant they were not only irritant but also really bad for their health.
They then began to research natural alternatives, including herbal remedies, only to find that these products were not suitable for their needs. Together Cristiane, Alexandra and Marianne decided to create their own recipes using luxurious, high-performance ingredients that are suitable for different skin types, 100% natural and non-toxic - the results were so amazing that friends and family started noticing it!
So BRASQUÉ was born in November 2019 from the marriage of Cristiane’s roots from « BRASil » and Alexandra and Marianne’s wellness approach to living right here in « QUÉbec ». Driven by the strong belief that skincare should be safe and effective, they developed a complete line of skincare that targets the most common skin issues, all naturally!
