OUR STORY

 

"PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics are lovingly made in my Brooklyn home-lab employing Reiki techniques. They are carefully crafted by hand with the finest ingredients, inspired by my desire to create a line of organic skin care products that yield stunning results that I have yet to encounter anywhere else."

SHAWNELLE PRESTIDGE | CREATOR + FOUNDER

 

PbOA is the realization of Jane Fonda’s longtime makeup artist-Shawnelle Prestidge.  Having been a licensed esthetician, working as a makeup artist for decades with celebrities, global brand and beauty giants, Shawnelle had grown obsessed with the dream of creating one universal organic serum, in a world of ever growing excess, that would address all skin needs-for all ages and skin types. 

At age 40, as the economy was tanking, Shawnelle naturally shelved that dream, to welcome her beautiful, healthy daughter into an uncertain world, and over a spell, endured multiple uprooting moves, and survived her husband’s near fatal/life-altering accident-when she suddenly found herself in the kitchen, helping him make a cannabis salve (to help quell his nerve pain), which was the catalyst that lead to her first product.  Shawnelle, now inching ever closer to 50, decided it was finally time to try her hand at creating that "miracle" serum and ultimately-the curated line of extremely effective, highly active, deeply healing-small batch organic skin care products-which quickly came to bear the name PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics.
