Meet Jenny & Joyce
Co-founders Jenny Tse & Joyce Tse
Jenny had a history of sensitive and acne prone skin, and was initially reluctant to use oils. However, she was about to travel to Asia for three months with her sister Joyce, and wanted to reduce the amount of beauty products to pack.
Joyce, a certified Cosmetic Chemist with a background in Chemical Engineering, concocted a bottle of oil and brought it along on the trip. They used the oil daily for three months, and found that it has transformed their skin and had worked better than anything else they've ever tried!
They returned home to Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and started looking further into oils. They realized that most of oils on the marketplace were poorly formulated and full of filler ingredients, which explained why so many of the oils Jenny tried in the past didn't work for her sensitive, acne prone skin.

For the next few months, they extensively researched and evaluated over 200 different plant oils on their textures, properties, benefits, and likeliness to cause acne. They eliminated all but 20 plant oils, and almost a year after they returned from their three month trip, they had perfected oil formulas for each skin type, for day and night, and for body and hair.
Velvette officially launched on June 1st, 2017!
