In this special series of posts, we've been walking you through “Sundaily Essentials”- a set of brief, zero-BS, what-heck-is-going-on-here posts which answer the most important questions we get about our alternative approach to healthy, glowing skin.
For the third and final post in the series, we want to answer some of the most common questions we get about the company, Sundaily. Nevermind all this gummy talk - who are we?!
So here’s Part 3: What Sundaily is all about!
Our mission: healthy #skinfromwithin
Like we mentioned in our first post, there are tons of products out there that will promise you beautiful skin. But by now, we know beauty starts with health. We started Sundaily because we needed a better way to keep our skin healthy.
If we’re going to agree that real, lasting beauty starts with health, then the next question is obvious - what really leads to skin health?
We started an ingestible skincare company because that’s where the science led us. Most of those products on our shelves out there? When you really dig into the research, not many stand up. We deserve better.
Here’s what most beauty companies can’t admit… If we don’t address the core of our skin health — the inside — then no amount of creams, gels, serums, washes, toners, or cleansers we slather on the outside are going to give us what we want.
That’s what our tasty gummies are all about.
Our standard of evidence
Speaking of science, let’s talk about how we define it. This is really simple: products made for humans should be shown to work in humans. The scary bit? Many of the products in your bathroom were only evaluated in a petri dish or a mouse. That’s crazy.
That’s why we only use active ingredients that have been tested for skincare and beauty benefits in humans, with results published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
Our commitment to clean
We also care deeply about what goes into our bodies, which is why we’re committed to total label transparency. All our gummies are:
- Made with Organic Ingredients
- Made in the USA
Our Chief Scientific Officer
Why are we so focused on evidence-based skincare? Our Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Emilia Javorsky, knows firsthand how important #skinfromwithin is.
As a physician and dermatology researcher at Harvard Medical School, Sundaily co-founder Dr. Emilia Javorsky saw how profoundly environmental stressors affect our skin, and how limited many topical products were at combatting these threats.
“Our best science shows that environmental stressors cause the vast majority of free radical damage and skin aging. Yet most topical products alone don’t combat the problem at its source - deep in our skin. We deserve better skincare that works from within. That’s why I started Sundaily.”
It all started with The Base Layer, and the body of research behind the antioxidant-packed fern called Polypodium Leucomotos. After spending years in the lab doing research, and scouring the scientific literature to determine what compounds had clinical evidence to support skin health and appearance, Dr. Javorsky knew she had to start Sundaily! She wanted to bring the benefits of ingestibles from the pages of scientific journals to our morning routines.
Our social impact and nonprofit partners
Lastly, we believe that business can, and should, be a force for good in the world. That’s why we’re a pending Certified B-Corp (the pending means we’re less than one year old.) Inc. Magazine has called B-Corp certification “the highest standard for socially responsible businesses.” That’s our people.
As well, Sundaily’s impact includes literally “giving back” to organizations doing work that’s aligned with our mission. A percentage of our revenue goes to two awesome organizations that we’re proud to support: Girls, Inc and EWG.
