BeautyTalks with April Meraz, House of M Beauty Digital Marketing Director
Tell us about the Founder of House of M Beauty, and how it all came to be!
Our Founder and CEO, Anne Oliver, created House of M Beauty after coming across the miracle ingredient saffron as she struggled to find a natural remedy for her postpartum depression. After vetting through the different qualities of saffron, her journey only truly began once she sourced the highest quality of this spice — super negin. Surprised by her newly clear and glowing skin from this ritual, Anne sought to bring the incredible benefits of saffron into the skincare market.
Could you tell us about the many benefits of Saffron?
The benefits of saffron come from using the highest quality of this spice. This super antioxidant-rich spice can bring an array of benefits including brightening of the complexion, soothing inflammation and fighting free radicals. A quick breakdown of just a few of the benefits found in our saffron skincare:

How are House of M Beauty products multi-purpose?
Our skincare was created by a busy mom with a mission to create skincare that makes achieving a glowing complexion attainable, even with a busy lifestyle. Each ingredient in our skincare serves a purpose and benefit. Our Saffron Miracle Serum soothes, nourishes and evens skin tone, while fighting signs of aging. Leaving skin supple and moisturized while it works its magic.
