This clean and non-toxic brand uses pure and potent ingredients that Marisa and Scott grow, create (they distill their own botanical bases) or purchase from socially responsible, and when possible, women-owned co-ops around the world. The line is a super curated collection packed with natural ingredients (of course, Meadowfoam and Thanaka Bark) as well as adaptogens, blue tansy, purslane, ashwagandha, and more. From the ingredients to the UV light resistant packaging and recycled paper boxes from their home state of New York, the brand is mindful of every aspect during production and development. Meadow and Bark’s mission is to harness the power of Mother Nature’s gifts and create non-toxic, nourishing, effective and effortlessly luxe skincare and sun care products.
Founded in Long Beach, NY the Meadow & Bark brand crystallized into formation after Marisa sought to find non- toxic sun protection for her family. Year-round beach residents, Marisa and her family have a love for the outdoors and ocean which led her to seek out better solutions for her children’s sun protection. When she came up empty, Marisa set forth to create natural, easy-to-wear suncare that offered optimum protection and wearability. At this time, her husband, Scott, took a trip to Indonesia that would change the trajectory of her efforts and become the catalyst for the brands inception. During the trip he suffered from a severe sunburn which led to the discovery of a local botanical and bark-based paste that not only shielded the burn but assisted in healing. Upon returning home, the duo sought out to replicate this miracle formula. After much trial and error, the two cracked the code and Meadow and Bark was born!
