Amy Haugen was hesitant when she started mixing lotion with cranberry seed oil in her garage in 2007. Little did she know it would not only make her skin radiant, but also jumpstart a new business venture. After seeing the results on her own skin, Haugen handed it out to her friends in takeout salad dressing cups. From there, Haugen, a licensed esthetician with over 25 years experience, started Stillwater Skin and has created 29 products including body lotions and eye gels.
At Stillwater Skin, they use the healing properties of cranberry seed oil to provide toxin-free, certified vegan skin care products. These all-natural products infuse skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and polyunsaturated fats that leave skin hydrated and vibrant. She and her team continue to do everything themselves, from crafting lotions to hand-delivering their products to clients throughout the St.Paul area. The skin specialists at Stillwater Skin also rejuvenate skin with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments and brow waxes. Their photofacials use broadband light to treat sun damage caused by years of UV bullying.
