One only needs to glance at Tina Craig’s luminous, plump, smooth skin to realise the entrepreneur and influencer knows what she’s talking about when it comes to skincare. Having launched her beauty brand U Beauty in November 2019, Craig’s signature product the Resurfacing Compound has been met with widespread acclaim thanks to its effective results.
Promising to resurface skin texture, refine pores, brighten the skin tone, tighten, equalise, and help the skin’s barrier remain strong, the Resurfacing Compound is not only highly-effective, it contains clean ingredients, is vegan, cruelty-free and GMO-free. Speaking about the catalyst for launching U Beauty, Craig says it was out of a desire to streamline her routine.
“My passion for beauty and skincare is lifelong, however my skincare routine evolved, or devolved rather, into 15 steps, every morning and night,” she remembers. “I wanted to find a great resurfacing product, simplify my routine and reduce waste, and I knew many people felt the same way.”
Her friend Katie Borghese, who is now Craig’s business partner, divulged a technology invented by a medical-grade lab in Italy, which the duo used to help create their ideal product. The technology — patent-pending — features Siren capsules, which lure damage-causing free radicals (generated after exposure to pollution, secondhand smoke and sunshine) to them like a magnet, explains Craig. “By attracting only the compromised cells to our Capsule, harm to healthy cells is avoided.”
The technology is genius in that it only targets damaged or vulnerable areas of the skin. “That’s because healthy skin areas don’t need harsh actives; by avoiding the delivery of ingredients like stable retinol and vitamin C, they get to maintain their integrity, avoiding dryness and irritation.”
For Craig and her team, one of the most important aspects to perfect within the Resurfacing Compound was visible effectiveness. “We’re committed to effective, sustainable products that yield results, first and foremost. I’ll never launch a product unless it fills a gap in the market and simultaneously delivers incredible results, multiple benefits and simplifies your life,” she asserts.
Luxury and sustainability are intrinsically connected, as far as Craig is concerned. Not just intent on creating a great product, she wanted to do it with integrity and consideration for the environment. “U Beauty is produced in a CO2-free medical-grade lab; we keep the lights on with green energy and do zero testing on animals (only humans!),” she says. “Every bottle of U Beauty is 100% recyclable and made of recycled plastic, along with recycled paper packaging.”
Throughout the process of launching U Beauty, Craig says she has rethought what luxury means. “Simplicity and cutting back on waste is true luxury. When you have a product that really works, marketing hype isn’t necessary; the results speak for themselves.”
