Authentic Skin Remedies

Authentic Skin Remedies was created by San Jose and Willow Glen resident, Amy Rueda. At the age of 35, she discovered she had a rare form of neuroendocrine system cancer of appendix, which was “environmentally linked and hormonally based.” In order to justify her remission (it will be 5 years Sept 2013), Amy decided to develop a natural skincare line that was plant-based. She found a chemist whose family has developed cruelty free, paraben free, gluten free and chemical free products in Italy for more than 100 years.

With Authentic Skin Remedies clients will discover their authentic beauty– before sun, before toxins, before gravity,–the healthy, beautiful skin they were born to have!
