the journal

For generations, my family has been immersed in the art and science of skincare. It is always our aim to share the wisdom and the experience gleaned from decades of creating world-renowned skincare products in this ever changing, ever-growing industry. At Retrouvé, we believe in making known what is possible as well as dispelling myths in skincare. Perhaps it’s an insight learned from my grandfather, a great hack from a skincare expert, or a recounting of new finds on the Malibu farm –whatever we write about, we endeavor to share something with you that makes your life – and your skin – a little better.
