Welcome to Vitruvian Man and let me introduce myself. I am Vivian Lau – the Founder of Vitruvian Man and I am so excited to be launching in London this month!
I have always wanted to develop a health and wellness brand after I started my pharmaceuticals career in Hong Kong. After 5 years, I was uninspired by the range of products I was working on and stressed by my cubical job. But I was passionate about good skincare and wanted to explore natural ingredients. I was lucky enough to take a career break and went travelling across South America, Australasia and Europe searching for alternative skin remedies and new natural scents and perfumes. After studying skin, perfume and organic cosmetics – I had the kernel of an idea.
The story of Vitruvian Man
What finally brought Vitruvian Man to life was witnessing the stresses and strains of my friends’ lives and the pressures of their careers and urban living – particularly the men! I could see that their lifestyles were affecting the way they looked and felt. After all, it had also happened to me! Fast forward a few years, hours of research, testing and sourcing ingredients as well as selecting markets would work best for me, I have now developed a brand I am proud of with two products as my key foundation stones: Resurrection Moisturiser and Anti Pollution Cleanser and Toner.
Initially aimed at men, my brand ingredients are natural and organic – designed to calm the senses and look after the skin. I have put so much thought into the right blend of ingredients from grass root juices to non-toxic minerals SPF – please explore the ingredients list on my website and feel free to ask me any questions! I would love to hear from you.
Finally, I am committed to donating a percentage of my profits to supporting positive mental health charities and currently exploring charity partners. If you have any suggestions – do let me know!
So here I am, on the first stage of my launch journey and hopefully the beginning of a whole range of new products that I am already developing. Please do come to visit me at our stands at the Indie Beauty Expo London on 24 and 25 October https://indiebeautyexpo.com/attend/ or the Gentleman’s Grooming Show on 17 and 18 November http://gentlemansgroomingshow.co.uk/
