Nourishing the skin, enriching the soul
The de Mamiel Collection is about more than just skincare – it is about our life’s energy. The products have been created using the ancient principles of Chinese medicine along with modern scientific research into how ingredients interact with our bodies. Each product is hand crafted and contains the purest natural & organic ingredients which have been carefully sourced for their unique potency. All of de Mamiel blends are individually created to capture the energetic, skin nourishing properties of plants and nature’s finest ingredients to treat, heal, balance & renew the skin, and soothe the mind, every day.
The formulas are both artisanal & highly advanced, blending the highest grade therapeutic essential oils with mood-boosting, balancing, affirming flower essences, skin-perfecting probiotics & peptides, alongside skin-brightening precious gem powders. This is skincare that doesn’t cut any cosmetic corners – every process is intensely thorough to ensure that the formulations are not only as pure as possible, but that the experience is always sensorially exquisite. The result is an extraordinarily effective range of holistic skincare.
de Mamiel (made in England) was started in 2010 by Australian born, London-based Annee de Mamiel. Annee is one of the UK’s leading authorities on acupuncture, specialising in facial techniques to create a healthy, vibrant appearance & an inner sense of well-being. Annee’s philosophy is centred on the single Chinese medicinal principle that life is entwined in a series of seasons & cycles.
Annee's story: "As an acupuncturist, aromatherapist & healing holistic facialist, I believe skincare is far more than a superficial treatment. It’s a chance to shift one’s energy; to not only renew the skin, but to rejuvenate the self too. It’s a breath of fresh air in the midst of a busy day. A chance to stop, sigh, touch your skin & reconnect with what’s going on in your head. de Mamiel started from a need in my life. At a time when I was going though chemotherapy/radiation treatment which dried out my skin. At the time I couldn’t find any products which helped, so I began to mix my own - something which would nourish my skin and give me comfort. Gravitating towards what I needed, I learned how to look after myself; to meditate, eat well. I also discovered Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. All of these things helped me get through my illness and became part of my life. I went on to train as an acupuncturist and to study Chinese Medicine, working in a hospital in China for a while. I also studied medicine and Chiropractic at Sydney University, through which I learned in depth anatomy, physiology; the physics and biochemistry of the body. The scientist in me needs to know how something works. After all my training, I couldn’t leave any stone unturned, and I decided to study aromatherapy in depth. Apparently, my love of blending began when I was around 7, playing with my Barbie fragrance making kit! de Mamiel is a result of combining all these elements in my treatments, and my clinical practice is the inspiration for me to create products which result in real, visible changes in the skin and help get us through the day with more ease."
"Everything you touch or that touches you matters" - With each formulation Annee looks at the vitality of each individual ingredient, how it feels, and how skin responds to it. She then look at the land, and the environment that feeds it. De Mamiel products are beyond organic, because they involve a level of love, care & dedication that reaches into every intimate stage of their production cycle. That includes a unique meditation & chant at each stage of creation which brings a vibrational energy to each batch made.
The result? Artisanal products which are inherently mindful – redolent of where they come from, and tangibly ‘vital’. A reminder for us to slow down, breathe, enjoy using them and take the time to care for ourselves.
