Quannessence: Canadian Holistic Skincare Sourced from Nature's Best

Oür Story

A young woman from a small island went to Germany to study holistic skincare. Her name was Sharon, and she knew she'd found her life's work. She came back to Prince Edward Island, and over the next twenty-odd years, she performed facial treatments on thousands of satisfied clients.

Sharon herself was not yet fulfilled as she could not find the natural skincare creams and serums to achieve the results she desired for her beloved clients. She wanted to give them healthy, radiant skin quickly, but everything she tried fell short.

She nurtured the dream of creating a natural skincare line that would perform to her exacting specifications for a long time. But, as a single mom raising her two beautiful children, she couldn't do it independently. Which meant her dream had to wait.

Today, Sharon is finally able to manifest her vision for holistic skincare. She has brought together an enthusiastic team devoted to combining nature's bounty in novel formulations. Guided by traditional knowledge and cutting-edge science, they perfected each formula over many iterations until it was Quannefied. Once merely just a dream, Sharon has created to provide her adored clients with the Deeply Beautiful HealthySkin™ she always knew they were worthy of.

Greatest moisturizer!

This moisturizer is great. It’s not heavy or greasy. It goes on smooth and leaves your face glowing. Perfect for all skin types.

Love this cream!

My favourite!

Good balance

Takes care of blemishes without feeling too drying!

Quannessence Revitalizing Cream is excellent.

My aesthetician used and recommended the Alchemist Revitalizing Cream for me and I’ve been using it for years. It is perfect for my at times sensitive skin. I feel hydrated and it’s not heavy. Such a great product. And how wonderful that it is made in the Maritimes!

Compromised Skin Kit
Ricki Clarke
6 years

I've been using this product for 6 years. When I started I had really bad acne and it cleared up within a week. I've used it constantly since. When I've run out of this product before buying more, my skin has gotten really bad acne again--and been cleared up when I got more ointment. I highly recommend compromised skin ointment. I couldn't live without it.

Great Product !! Really Enjoying !!!

What’s not to love?

I love the light yet rich texture of this cream. It nourishes my skin deeply and I never fail to use it, no matter how tired I feel at the end of the day during my nighttime cleansing routine! You will not regret discovering this remarkable, local company!

QButter Body Butter
Marilyn MacKenzie

Actually, I had given some Body Butter to our daughter who lives in BC and she loved it! Recently she asked me if I could still get it and so I ordered a couple of jars and forwarded them to her. I am always impressed with your notifications of order received, order shipped and when I should expect it. Your follow up is impeccable and I certainly appreciate it! Thank you!

Since I’ve started this skin care line my skin is amazing. LOVE the cream and how it feels on my face! Would recommend to everyone.

Body scrub

Je m’attendais à un produit un peu plus liquide, mais ça laisse la peau douce.

Crème nettoyante

J’adore ce nettoyant puisque je l’utilise depuis 4 ans. Je vous le recommande!

Amazing on sensitive skin

I have tried to use numerous high end exfoliating scrubs over the years and they all irritated my skin. This little Gem however is amazing skin feels great refreshed and glowing. Pleased it doesn’t not irritate this 48yr old redheads skin. I would highly recommend I’ve been using for a few years now and have turned some friends into it they also love it.
