Buongiorno ! My name is Monika Maksime and I’m the founder of Monica Max – active botanical skincare made in Italy. I’m a professional skincare formulator , Formula Botanica – world’s leading accredited Organic Cosmetic Science School graduate and now a managing director at Monica Max skincare. I have to admit that I’m a passionate natural beauty lover, too !
I am a nature’s kid. I have grown up in a baltic country Lithuania which is rich in green forests and lakes, so until now I can not immagine my life without this green inspiring color. I love outdoor sports and nature is the place where I can renew my energy. I was always in research of natural skincare because I believe nature has a healing and beautifying power even for the skin.
When I moved to Italy, I found inspiration just on every corner of this country, specially in the eternal city where I am living – Rome. I started traveling here and I was amazed by italians and their high quality artisan traditions in wherever they were doing. I fell in love with this country and I was so inspired bymade in Italy “ art “ that I wanted to create it by myself.
When I started formulating and researching my first skincare products I loved a lot of different first materials and I could not exclude even one out of my formulations. But that is who I am – M A X, I just love reaching maximum of everything. Inserting a lot of different ingredients brought me to create high-performance active skincare combining a lot of botanical components which have rejuvenating properties.
I am always researching various plants and their interaction with other plants or natural components , traditional customs which were used for keeping the skin young and of course modern new technologies and their work to create rejuvenating therapy for the skin. I think mother nature holds the secret of eternal youth and my mission is to find the key to unlock this magic youth door.
