Our Story

Verbena is a collection of small-batch artisan skincare products, handcrafted to enhance our beauty rituals, harmonize our spirit and connect us to the natural world.

Pulling from western herbal traditions, we formulate using the highest quality organic, wildcrafted, and sustainably harvested ingredients.

Our philosophy is that the products we put on our skin, like the food we put in our mouths, should not be complicated and should come from nature.

We use reusable and recyclable containers, and we test our products only on ourselves and our friends. We believe in transparency for the personal care industry and access to natural skincare for all.

Christin Wingo started making body butter for friends after she took a class at a local herb shop, but her passion for herbs and handmade body care quickly outgrew the hobby phase. Soon courses in herbalism and skincare were taken, lotions were brewing, and Verbena was born.

Prior to starting Verbena, Christin graduated from the University of Virginia, worked in the wine business in New York City for over a decade, received her MBA, and worked as a consultant to small businesses. Eventually however, she knew she needed to work with her hands in order to feel creatively fulfilled. She left the corporate world and NYC for creative pursuits and small town life and never looked back. She lives in Boulder, CO and sees mountain peaks from her kitchen window.
