How It All Began
When my daughter was a baby, the combination of her food allergies and sensitive skin had me go mama-bear crazy, trying every "natural" product out there, but nothing worked. I felt cheated by so many products that claimed to be all natural, only to find chemical-laden, synthetic ingredients in many of them. So I took matters into my own hands and educated myself on the physiology of the skin, cosmetic science, chemistry and aromatherapy. For over two years, I found myself diving into the world of essential oils, studying all the benefits they have on the human body.
My name is Mindy Cheng, and I started this company out of passion for the environment, mother nature, human health, the truth and giving back. I had been working for an Engineering Firm for 15 years and decided to quit the only job I've ever known and risk everything to follow my passion. I want to be able to leave this planet better than I found it. And that's how Fyve was born, out of all my passions combined under one brand.
The Fifth Ingredient
The fifth ingredient will typically be a blend of essential oils of 1% or less. We source high quality, organic whenever possible, and therapeutic grade essential oils. We will never use sulfates, parabens, formaldehyde donors, PEG's, synthetic fragrances or dyes. With our products, we only use 5 main ingredients, so each ingredient serves a functional purpose. There is no room for additives, and quite frankly, there is no need for them. Your skin will glow beautifully without them!
