Nisha Thomas Dearborn has been thinking about skincare since she was a kid. Her mom is a retired dermatologist so Nisha spent summers in her office and traveled to dermatology conferences with her in high school. Nisha’s first job was an internship at Estée Lauder, and she spent nearly a decade climbing the corporate ladder at Johnson & Johnson and was marketing director and brand manager for preservative-packed skincare products like Aveeno and RoC.

In 2016, she made a family move to Maine which inspired a lot of healthy lifestyle changes. She realized that just like we demand high quality, fresh ingredients in our food, we should demand high quality, fresh ingredients in our skincare. Ingredients are at their peak when they are first mixed together and activated. The sooner you can use a product after it is activated, the better it is for your skin.

“That’s why I created Fresh Chemistry: a revolutionary approach to skincare that puts fresh, potent ingredients — and the power to activate them — in your hands.” Fresh Chemistry is high performance skincare with fresh, clean ingredients that you mix in and shake to activate for the potency and power your skin deserves.
