Brand overview

Founded by Kristina Balac, XZIE Skincare is a sustainable, non-toxic, plant-based skincare brand inspired by the desert and climate of the Middle East. The small-batch brand prides itself on using only fresh, high-quality botanical ingredients sourced from small businesses and farmers at their point of origin. The brand blends traditional ingredients with contemporary skin science to create healthy and effective alternatives to mainstream skincare products. Their inclusive product line caters to a diverse range of skin types and conditions. XZIE is dedicated to implementing sustainable practises, such as its refill programme, and is committed to helping consumers make more informed skincare choices. Through her studies with Formula Botanica, Kristina was able to refine the brand, elevate the quality of formulations to deliver better results, and adapt her products to the needs of sensitive skin.

“Formula botanica provided me with knowledge and resources that allowed me to truly understand formulation and be able to create more complex products. It also gave me the courage and confidence to experiment with ingredients and textures and level up the efficiency of my formulas.”
