Transformative Beauty Inspired by Desert Resilience

Transformative Beauty Inspired by Desert Resilience

Clinically crafted skincare designed by nature to refine, protect and renew.

At AYOND, our philosophy is informed by the desert -- a vast, enigmatic landscape where hidden reservoirs nourish and sustain life in beautiful ways. Such extreme environs are home to highly efficacious botanicals that have evolved over millennia to preserve water, store nutrients and protect against harsh aggressors. That’s why high desert actives like Rock Rose, Wild Indigo, Blue Butterfly Bush and Sand Verbena -- imbued with potent therapeutic benefits from intense hydration to renewal and repair -- are the soul of our skincare.

The human body and mind are increasingly prone to chronic stress and anxieties in the form of toxins, pollutants, UV and blue light, and other factors that throw us off balance, triggering premature signs of aging and dull, dry, damaged skin. By fusing ancient plant wisdom with clinical innovation, AYOND offers clean formulas to rebuild resilience, boost radiance, and help your skin thrive.

AYOND, a synonym for beyond, encompasses the belief that in order to thrive in a future beyond today, we must create consciously, inclusively and sustainably.

Shani Van Breukelen, an African American and Dutch fashion alumni from Central Saint Martins and Porter Yates, a native to Santa Fe and mechanical engineer with a focus in sustainability founded AYOND in 2018.

The pair shifted from their respective fields after Shani suffered a burn trauma and the couple started working with plant-based remedies to help heal her skin. Inspired by their experience in the desert, the duo set out to create efficacious skincare that celebrates design without compromising the Earth.
