About us

As dermatologists and experts in contact dermatitis, we have seen our fair share of skin that has been made sick, irritated and allergic to products that lack ingredient integrity. It doesn't have to be this way.

Best cleanser ever - so gentle and effective.

“Gets off make up so incredibly well. Every other cleaner I’ve used in my long history of face cleansing inevitably leaves make up on so that my towel gets covered in make up after I cleanse. When I use this cleanser and rinse off my face - it’s truly clean. Best cleanser ever! ”
Alyssa C.

I am so thankful that this product exists.

“I have a few common contact allergens, eczema, and am about a year into topical steroid withdrawal. My dermatologist suggested this product to moisturize during this sensitive time. The rich moisturizer has been a godsend. Where I use it is soft after months of red, rough skin.”

I am truly grateful for the entire line of your products

“My skin is highly sensitive and I have the worst time with products. I am always afraid to get a facial because of all the different products estheticians use on your skin. NEVER has my skin responded so well to the products of Vetted. ”
Ethel C.

I do feel like I am glowing!

“Recently started using the full line and loving it. Have used all high end luxury brands in the past and this competes! Vit C better than other brands and love knowing it's clean, as I have very, very sensitive skin. I do feel like I am glowing! Very happy!”

I had given up on serums until I found the Vetted line

“It's gentle on my skin and doesn't leave a sticky residue like other serums. I have sensitive skin and have used several ethically sourced skincare products that result in red, irritated skin. Vetted is the first line I've used that aligns with my values and is good for my skin!”
Jenny R.

I love this brand

“Wonderful moisturizer - love this brand. I have super sensitive skin and am environmentally conscious.”
Meredith N.

I'm so thankful to have found a trustworthy skin care regimen

“This stuff is incredible. I have been using this after I wash my face with the cleanser and it makes my face feel so supple and soft. I love that it melts right into my face without any greasy residue. I haven't had any irritation after a couple months using this.”

Incredible - For the first time ever I have no complaints!

“My skin tends to be oily, I have rosacea and typically other products have made my rosacea (pink cheeks) worse. Finally, I’ve found a product that cleans my face, and moisturizes without irritating my skin and has it leaving soft, fresh, and clean.”

My go-to facial moisturizer, day and night!

“I really love all of the Vetted products. But I have to give a shout out to the M1 moisturizer. It goes on so smooth and lightly, providing excellent moisture without a thick and heavy feel. It is my go-to facial moisturizer, day and night!”
Amy S.

Perfect for my skin

“I love this retinoid. It is strong enough to make my skin look and feel great but isn’t as drying as some I’ve used in the past. Paired with the M2 moisturizer, it is a perfect combination. I am so happy with it!”
Claire R.

Skin feels so dewy!

“I am 2 weeks in and loving M1. Layers well with SPF, Vitamin C and leaves my skin with a beautiful glow”


“I am 2 weeks in and loving M2. Layers well with SPF, my Vitamin C serum and leaves my skin with a beautiful glow.”

Thank you Vetted!

“I have sensitive skin and contact allergies and it is so wonderful for the first time to be able to treat my skin to some “fancy skincare” without worries of a breakout. Thank you Vetted!”


“My skin feels baby soft and gently exfoliated after using this cleanser. Obsessed!”

The Vetted C Cleanser is divine!

“I have sensitive skin and have ended up using a number of ethically sourced skincare products that result in red, irritated skin. Vetted is the first line I've used that aligns with my values and is good for my skin.”
Jenny R.

Vetted is the first line I've used that aligns with my values and is good for my skin.

“It hydrates my skin without irritating it or clogging my pores. I've tried other ethically sourced moisturizers that don't penetrate my skin, leaving it sticky to the touch. The M2 Moisturizer penetrates my skin, leaving it soft and supple. ”
Jenny R.

Wow! My go to moisturizer moving forward.

“I decided to give vetted a try for my face and this moisturizer has done wonders to my skin. In a matter of days, my skin feels smooth, healthy and is glowing. I have been struggling to find a moisturizer for my face for years. But this moisturizer has not caused any issues. ”
Katie B.

You can FEEL the clean

“I love this cleanser!!! The texture is gel-like: super smooth and moisturizing. Feels like I'm getting a nice, deep clean every time I use it. And zero residue. Has the perfect amount of light suds'ing and then rinses off completely cleanly. Highly recommended. Love love!!!”
Nora S.

ZERO irritation from this product

“I have super sensitive skin and have never found a retinoid that doesn't irritate my skin. I've had ZERO irritation from this product so far, so happy to be able to incorporate a retinoid into my skincare regime without giving myself a rash in the process.”
