We live in a global village - our products and brand aesthetics celebrate the beauty and diversity of humankind. We have carefully conceived our formulas to be inclusive of—and beneficial for—all skin types, conditions, and colors, in all climates. We are inspired by ancient wellness and beauty practices across cultures, and we listen carefully to cutting-edge science.
We use a carefully vetted selection of botanically-based ingredients that have been researched and studied—with published results in scientific and medical journals—and proven to benefit skin health. All skin types thrive with the application of natural ingredients that are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, skin-recharging, and skin-nourishing.
Of equal importance, we do not use ingredients—natural or otherwise—that can irritate, inflame, or compromise skin. These can include drying alcohols, harsh and outdated preservatives, certain natural and synthetic fragrances and essential oils, problematic fillers, and pore-clogging occlusives.
Start with a freshly cleansed face. Sun Serum is best applied by tapping lightly onto the face with fingertips. Snow Serum can be applied to the palms and pressed gently into the face. After using the serum of your choice, skin is left protected and glowing, with a perfect finish.
Quentin Smith and Alia Raza are the creative forces behind TOPI. They've long discussed that now more than ever their skin faced an onslaught of shifting conditions - from the dynamic weather patterns of a rapidly changing climate to the multiple environments they found themselves in on a daily basis. Indoor heating, air conditioning, frequent airplane trips, air pollution, glaring LED screens, fluorescent office lights, a vacation in the tropical sun, a bracingly cold ski trip... TOPI Climatic Skincare was born as a way to address the impact of all of these extremes on their faces.
Quentin (a world-traveler and former museologist/curator based in Southern California) and Alia (a New Yorker based in France who studies fragrant flowers) sought out the world's most advanced botanical ingredients and consulted doctors, chemists, and health experts to produce elegant formulas for every skin type, every skin color, every age, every gender, every climate, and every day.
