Our story


Mont Trod was founded at the kitchen table of biochemist Dr Helena Topouzi. You may say that Mont Trod was born a long time ago on the mountains of Cyprus, and specifically in Mountain Troodos, where Helena was spending most of her summers as a child. There, she discovered the abundance of raw ingredients in nature and she was absolutely stunned by the transformative powers they can have on our skin and wellness. The brand's name is a tribute to those experiences.

Mountain Troodos = Mont Trod

 Helena decided to study natural skincare formulation in order to combine her background in biochemistry and expertise in skin and hair biology to create effective natural skincare. She started blending plant oils for her and her family and was amazed by the results these natural formulations had on their skin. She really wanted to show everyone the great benefits natural ingredients can have on our skin’s health and therefore decided to start her own skincare line.

Our first product, the purifying clay mask, combines ethically sourced natural and organic ingredients, with scientifically proven effectiveness, to make everyone’s skin glow. Our mask is suitable for every skin type, men and women who want to use vegan friendly natural skincare. It is a 4in1 treatment that cleanses, rejuvenates, purifies and brightens your skin all in one go! Living such busy lifestyles we wanted to bring to you a product that would help you stay on top of your skincare game and give you all the goodness your skin needs in just 15 minutes!

We are now expanding our product line to include more amazing products that will give you a healthy and glowing skin. Our products are handmade in the UK in small batches, with natural and ethically sourced ingredients from all over the world. We aim to provide you with beautiful natural skincare that is good for your skin and our planet.
