Behind the Brand

In a world of quick-fix dermabrasion procedures and chemical peels, our founders, Stephanie Duttenhaver and Cindy Edwards, heeded lessons from generations of Southern women to be gentle and careful with their complexions. Their boutique line of products is unique because it restores without first damaging our skin.

Sapelo replicates our body’s immune response with a gentle cascade of biologically active peptides, vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients. 

Inspired by the twice daily tides off the coastal Georgia barrier islands, our products provide a morning and evening surge of nourishment and hydration for healthy skin cell development. They are formulated with a botanical profusion of Southern-inspired ingredients such as gardenia stem cells, magnolia oil, oyster shell calcium, seaweed, sea lavender oil and Georgia honey, and are manufactured in Savannah, Georgia under our founders’ watchful supervision.

Launched in 2015, Sapelo Skin Care’s name is a nod to the many beautiful barrier islands off the coast of Savannah, caressed twice-daily by the nutrient-rich Georgia tides.
