Hi, I’m Sonja, the co-founder, formulator, center of happiness and driving force behind Double Happiness Skincare. I originally created this brand with Young Lee out of our shared love for healthy skincare and the desire to spread knowledge about the immense bounty of healing plants, clays, oils, salts and spices the earth gives to us.
My path to creating formulas and rituals from the healing forces of nature has been winding, from makeup artist to marketing executive and from skin specific herbalist to skincare formulator. I’ve walked this path with a constant focus on education and research and have carried a profound respect for ancient traditions and the healing intelligence of plants in my heart. Nature is my greatest inspiration for unlocking the beautiful skin rooted in our DNA and I’ve made it my mission to pass on this knowledge through my skincare collection.
I love what I do and feel incredibly lucky I get to connect with others to guide them on their journey to healthy, happy skin. I love my husband and my family, and I love days spent in nature and by the ocean the best because they’re the moments when I feel the happiest. Mountain air, salt air and the smell of wild flowers are some of the greatest gifts to treasure.
It’s my core belief and guiding principle that what our skin needs to thrive isn’t complicated and our skincare ritual shouldn’t be either; that’s why the Double Happiness collection was created as a four-step process. Cleanse. Exfoliate. Hydrate. Treat. They’re all you need for healthy, glowing skin.
I hope you love the collection as much as I’ve loved creating it for you!
