Chantal Bacon founded Moon Juice after a health battle and autoimmune condition prompted her to overhaul her diet and lifestyle, embracing traditional remedies and all-things woo woo.
What originally started as a juice bar has quickly evolved into a supplements and skincare brand which pairs sciences with adaptogenic plants, traditionally used in Ayurvedic and Chinese practices claiming to help with everything from increased libido to concentration and sleep. With names like Sex Dust, Dream Dust and Brain Dust, and cute branding, it was only a matter of time before Moon Juice captured the attention of the internet.
“When we opened 10 years ago, I would’ve said that I’d be the least likely person to formulate skincare. Editors and retailers were always asking for it but skincare wasn’t something I even used or believed in. I had a very simple routine, a bar of soap and sometimes an oil, my focus was on holistic health.” However once Chantal hit per mid-thirties, she endeavoured to upgrade her minimalist routine. The problem: most effective skincare products had ingredients that didn’t align with her lifestyle. “I wasn’t ready to let go of my new skin, so I got to work in creating my own.”
