I started Dr.Lipp back in 2004 when I couldn’t find anything to help with dry skin! After a successful career as a luxury handbag designer, Pontine is a lover for all things design, beauty and wellness. After being recommended ‘nipple balm’ from a pregnant friend, I was amazed by how hydrating the main ingredient was. The product was so effective for all sorts of dry skin issues and I wanted to make it available to more people. If it was good enough for your nipples, then it would be good enough for everywhere else. I was fascinated that this highly effective 100% natural product was made from only ONE 100% natural ingredient – medical grade lanolin – which I discovered was the true unsung hero of the skincare world! But it was also a testament to the fact that short ingredient lists can be simply amazing and serve multiple purposes.
Finding the right people to making a winning team for Dr.Lipp!
The Original Nipple Balm for Dry Skin, Luscious Lips & Glossy Bits. It is still my hero!
Patience, and never give up!
Don’t think to much, Just get on with it and do it – make it happen. Then always be prepared to adapt to the situation and make the best out anything that comes your way!
Don’t be afraid to start your dream earlier, don’t wait!
Venice would be my dream! And to go sailing from there!
Yoga, Sound massage and hiking in the Verbier mountains are ways I love to wind down.
