We're thrilled your adventures have brought you here! 

I ski, hike, and love the beach. Without a doubt, my outdoor explorations take a toll on my very sensitive skin. In fact, my skin refuses to let me use any other products besides Em & El. It's indispensable!

You've tried our hand cream and liked it - or so we'd like to hope. As a small woman-owned business (by a woman who sails!), that makes us super happy.

Need some more hand cream? Let's get that fixed!

    MADE FOR OUTDOOR EXPLORING

    Your adventures can be tough on your skin. As sailors, we know firsthand the damage that wind, salt water, and sun can do to our skin. To ensure our products hold up outdoors, they're tested in the toughest environments we can find: Antarctica, sailing around the world, scaling mountains, or taking on life on the NYC streets.

    MADE WITH ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

    Your skin deserves the best, and the best products start with the best organic ingredients. We don't believe in fillers or putting junk in our products. Our ingredients are always certified organic, and fair trade whenever possible. We work with small family businesses and small growers because connections and community matter to us.

    PEOPLE FIRST, PROFITS SECOND

    We believe in putting people and planet first. Every decision we make starts there: from our recyclable product containers to their labels made with rocks (not paper!), from our post-consumer recycled shipping boxes to our work with local non-profits.

    When you buy from us, you're supporting a small woman-owned business that believes in building community and creating a more equitable world. It's the only way we know how to operate.
