Our Story

Hi I'm Jayda!

Born and raised here in beautiful BC, my passion for skincare and makeup started as a teenager when I was looking for a way to naturally heal my acne.  From there, my passion and love for skincare and makeup has lead me creating Ativo Skincare and becoming a certified makeup artist with Blanche Macdonald.

At 13, (now 21) I formulated my first product for acne. Within weeks my breakouts were calming and the pain diminishing. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, plenty of water my skin has been radiant and glowing ever since. 

At Ativo Skincare, we believe that holistic whole organic ingredients are what’s needed for our bodies to be their best. Ativo is committed to sourcing and using the highest grade active natural beauty ingredients available. 

We are naturally based and proudly committed to being cruelty-free through the Leaping Bunny Program. We have also committed to not using the following ingredients in our products. (Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Laurel Sulfates, Propylene Glycol, Triclosan, DEA, MEA & TEA)

Proudly I own Ativo Skincare in partnership with my mom, Tracy. Together we hope you enjoy the love we put into every single product. 

We appreciate you being with us on this journey. 

With Love, 

Jayda & Tracy
