Sharon Maughan

Award-winning British actress, director, producer and entrepreneur, Sharon Maughan developed health problems in 2009 due to a reaction to salicylates, known as salicylic overload. Suffering from symptoms including breathing problems, nasal polyps, eczema and incredibly sensitive skin she had major surgery and was warned to make significant lifestyle changes, and drastically limit her salicylate intake or risk the condition returning within 6 months.

Salicylates’ common presence in cosmetics, food, cleaning products, perfume and more, means many others have also developed reactions - although Sharon’s reaction was extreme, salicylate build up can affect sufferers with a varying spectrum of severity over time,  with it becoming more widely recognised by the medical profession as a problem ingredient for some consumers. Sharon’s experiences now mean she has a heightened understanding of how to limit internal and eternal exposure and is passionate about helping other sufferers live a lower salicylate lifestyle. 

Since 2012 she has been on a journey to develop a line of skincare products that can help to provide the solution. Using the best natural ingredients, Sharon has developed FaceWise, the go to for intelligent skincare.

The Solution

"The carefully curated FaceWise collection is free from salicylates and perfect for all skin types. I hope you love it as much as I do!”
