The Laurel Skin Studio Journey

As many of you may already know, for the past several months we have been in the process of preparing to open our flagship location. Our new Skin and Wellness Studio will be a green beauty haven in Sausalito, Marin County, California. Our company  is all under one roof – we currently do all of our production on one side, and the other side is being turned into Marin’s first luxury green beauty retail store. We will be selling eight very special organic local or artisan brands including: Etta + Billie, Homestead Apothecary, Josh Rosebrook, La Bella Figura, LURK, May Lindstrom, Pursoma, and R.L. Linden. We will also be offering our brand new Signature Laurel facial treatments by appointment, Thursday – Saturday. We could not be more excited for all that we will be offering and doing here. But we want you to think of it as more than just a store. We want this to be a space where you can come spend five minutes or two hours, whether you are looking for a new product, getting a glimpse of our production process, receiving a facial, relaxing with a cup of tea, or having a holistic health consultation. We are so excited to share our new space with you! It has been a long time in the making, and we cannot believe we will finally be open in two weeks! We want to share some pictures of our studio’s remarkable transformation from a former gym into our production and studio space. Take a peek at some behind the scenes photos of life with the Laurel team, from our humble beginnings at Farmer’s Markets to our beautiful permanent home!
