Our Love Story
Life isn’t always easy, but there are many wonderful things you can do to help you through the challenging times. Self-care is extremely important to our survival. It’s a tool we can use to hit the pause button on life, allowing us to give ourselves some much-needed attention. By restoring our balance in this way, we can move forward in life, more easily overcoming any challenges or obstacles that may come into our path.
This is exactly why Survivante exists! Using only the highest quality ingredients, we create luxury products to boost your self-care experience. They serve as a refreshing oasis, recharge your energy, and leave you feeling revitalized. Although we are based in New York, our beautiful collection is available online for the benefit of people around the world.
Survivante is a French word that means “survivor”, and it holds great meaning to our Founder, Keisha Hickson. After 25 years in the financial industry, this extraordinary woman was diagnosed with cancer. When the pressure of the situation became overwhelming, Keisha often turned to self-care rituals for comfort and soothing. When she washed her hair, she felt the stress go down the drain with the suds. When she treated herself to luxury hair and skin products, she felt infused with love and confidence. Keisha wants everyone to be able to experience these things, no matter what they may be dealing with in life, which is why she founded this company. Today, she is five years in remission – proof that any of us can overcome our struggles if we can just support ourselves along the way.
" I love how versatile the Survivante Exfoliating Face Scrub is. I use it not only on my face but also on my cuticles and dry patches. It's incredibly nourishing and has helped heal my skin in multiple ways. I'm obsessed! "
