Founder Story

Created by Dutch founder Lune in 2020, MONDAY MUSE™ has been years in the making after searching high and low to find something that would help to clear up her troubled skin. 

A letter from Lune…

This is a story that goes way back to suffering from skin conditions including eczema in my early childhood to acne, mild rosacea and perioral dermatitis as a teenager and adult. I know how horrible it feels to have painful cysts and bumpy-textured skin that just can’t be masked by any foundation or concealer (you can read my full skin story here).

It’s been my mission ever since to help others combat their own skincare concerns, especially those with temperamental skin and so I worked to get a diploma in organic skincare formulation and worked with my trusted chemist to create products that promise to respect and support your beautiful skin.

MONDAY MUSE has your skin’s best interests at heart.

We Understand Temperamental Skin

Dealing with skin conditions like acne and eczema can be a painful experience that has a real effect on our confidence. We know this feeling very well and are here to help you, help your skin health with formulations that keep temperamental skin in check.

We want encourage and empower you to take back control, be accepting and live your happiest life without the worry of your skin’s appearance.

The Grace of Gentle Actives

We know that finding a solution for not so well-behaved skin can often feel overwhelming. Instead of bombarding the skin with too many strong actives, we take a more gentle and minimal approach without sacrificing efficacy.

Our products include clinically-backed actives that work in harmony with our skin's natural microbiome that are also designed to minimize the risk of irritation. Our skin is intelligent therefore we focus on skin-friendly, forward-thinking formulations to protect, support and respect the skin’s barrier.

Quality over Quantity

Did you know that many brands will white label skincare products that have been pre-made by manufacturers? This is not our style.

Instead, we work closely with a team of independent cosmetic chemists to create one-of-a-kind formulations from scratch to keep control over the process from start to finish. This allows us to hand-select the highest quality actives ensure our formulations are effective and up to our standard.

The way an ingredient is extracted, how it is grown, the souring process all play a role in determining the potency and therefore the quality of the product. We carefully inspect each ingredient before adding anything to our formulas, sourcing our ingredients with integrity to create fewer but better products for our skin.
