Romer Skincare is a woman-owned clean and sustainable skincare line that launched last year. Lauren Rome built the gender-neutral line after realizing the 100+ products in her bathroom cabinets weren’t delivering results. She solved the hassle of cluttered choice paralysis by creating transparent, good-for-you formulas with insight into the product journey from start to finish that could be shared regardless of gender. Romer is dermatologist-tested, cruelty-free, and a 1% for the planet member, donating a portion of every sale to causes that help the planet. Romer is carbon-neutral, plastic-neutral, and water-neutral investing in offset projects to mitigate their environmental impact.
Romer's collection offers a nourishing gel-oil Cleanser, lightweight daily Moisturizer, and CBD-infused Treatment mask, all of which incorporate organically grown botanicals, oils and extracts that are ethically sourced. Skipping the toxic ingredients, Romer Skincare sticks to simple elements that revive, replenish, calm and control the skin. Romer Skincare is committed to using simple, non-toxic ingredients to make sustainable, eco-friendly products that are free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates, benzyl acetate, hydroquinone, formaldehydes, glycols, drying alcohols, artificial colors or synthetic fragrance.
Lauren Rome was working on Wall Street, with stress and long hours resulting in breakouts, dark circles and dehydration. Despite her bathroom cabinet overflowing with skincare products, she couldn’t find a reliable routine. After years of searching unsuccessfully, Lauren decided it was time to take matters into her own hands. She left Wall Street behind to create a better solution for women and men struggling with the same daily skin challenges.
Simple, clean skincare that does more with less. The term “clean beauty” gets thrown around a lot. But what does it really mean? To Romer Skincare, it’s way more than simply omitting harmful substances. It’s a commitment to efficacious, good-for-you formulas – made the right way with honesty, integrity and transparency. Romer believes people deserve a peace of mind when it comes to their skincare.
Lauren Rome Marks
CEO & Founder
Lauren is a lover of community, the environment, and clean skincare. Born on the East Coast, she spent the last decade in New York City grinding in the tenacious environment of Wall Street. As a woman on the go, Lauren tried countless skincare products but nothing seemed to work to combat the stress which led to breakouts, dark circles, and dehydrated skin. Empowered by the idea that she could help people feel their best, she embarked on a mission to create the solution she and others needed. Enter Romer Skincare. Lauren is now living full time in Chicago with her husband, a proud Mom to a golden retriever and her skin has never looked better. She spends less time trying new products and more time on the things that matter. Lauren is continuing to build a community around her brand and helping others discover the joy of healthy, beautiful skin.
