Corium was founded in 2016 by Vuyisile Zondi, who had a passion and interest in beauty, which finally grew into a business. She started off by making natural skincare mixes and trying out new things from curiosity. She gave these samples to friends and family to try out; received positive feedback, and later on formalised the business and created formulations for retail. Fast forward to 2019, the brand has been growing strong and evolving, to meet the needs of the customer.
I collaborated with Corium because I love what they stand for, as their values mirrors my values when it comes to health and beauty. You're probably wondering, what is it exactly that they stand for, read from the excerpt below sourced from their Corium Blog.
"WHAT DO WE STAND FOR
Corium Skincare is home to Corium Naturals and Corium Luxe. Corium (pronounced Ko-Ree-Yum) is the Latin word for 'dermis' - the deepest layer of the skin. In its most raw meaning, Corium can also be translated to mean 'the truest skin'. That is what we at Corium are all about: giving you your 'true' skin.
