MATINA SKIN CARE SOLUTIONS is a company that began with a personal experience. The source of inspiration is based on the founder’s daughter who was born with severe atopic eczema. Ever since being an infant she had been under the care of a specialist who prescribed different products in order to stabilize her skin. By the time she became a toddler, although her condition had greatly improved, she still suffered from dryness which left her skin feeling rough and flaky. This became more obvious during season change periods, as the irritation was followed by redness and intense itching.
While on a family vacation to Greece in the summer of 2017, her condition aggravated due to the long plane journey which resulted in visiting a dermatologist. After treating her skin condition, the doctor advised a follow up with BOSKIN EMOLLIENT Shower Gel as well as BOSKIN EMOLLIENT Cream. In fact, he suggested making these two hydrating products part of her daily routine in order to maintain healthy and smooth skin. Since various over the counter products had already been used with no satisfactory long-term effects, the founder took the dermatologist’s advice and began using the products.
This is where the journey of MATINA SKIN products started. The first thing appreciated was the non- greasy effect of the cream. Using it twice a day along with the shower gel, a HUGE difference on her daughter’s skin was noticed. The more it was used the smoother and healthier it became. Since this had worked for her daughter why shouldn’t it be able to help others with similar skin problems? She thought of a few cases she had known in Canada and how they would benefit from it.
Her next step was to approach BODERM Pharmaceutical Company who produce these products in Greece only to become highly impressed. They are a dynamic company who engage in International market of Medicines and Cosmetics with the aim to provide high quality of product and services in favor of consumers’ health benefit. After negotiations it was agreed to import these products into the Canadian market.
