Love Your Skincare: 45-Day Returns

    This is NOT Goodbye

    This is NOT Goodbye
    My dear friends and community,

    After fifteen years of holding space and building community with our "brick and mortar" stores, we're ready to take the first steps on the next trail of the evolution of the project we call aos Skincare.

    First, and very importantly, aos IS NOT CLOSING.
    We are not going out of business In fact, we've been growing steadily and sometimes very quickly, over the last few years!


    We're partnering with Wren & Wild! Your local clean beauty boutique.

    • Located in downtown Bend on Minnesota (between Bond & Wall St)
    • Shop 7 Days a Week
    • Locally owned by mother-daughter team Mandy & Carly

    We've Been Listening
    Every day as I ran the store, I heard many of you say you came by and we were closed. We want you to have access to your skincare every day and for longer hours. And that's why we've decided to partner with our loveliest of neighbors, Wren & Wild. 

    You now have more access to your favorite aos Skincare!
    I'm thrilled for you to meet them, if you haven't already. And they're just steps away- right around the corner from our downtown store.


    Thank you for the pleasure of being a part of the community with our store.
    For hours and years of conversation and sharing.

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity to watch you and your families grow, watching your children grow and have babies of their own.

    Thank you for welcoming us into your lives and sharing your life events, celebrating your milestones, crying with you, laughing, and most of all, building so many wonderful friendships along the way. For stopping in just to say, "hello" and check in with us whenever you were downtown.

    I look forward to having the time to create beauty, more and better products, deepening my connection to the plant allies we work with and the farmers who lovingly nurture them- and to meeting new ones.

    I look forward to spending more time with Elisa (she makes all the products, you know!) as we grow this amazing creation for you and for our own pleasure and passion.

    Exciting new things on the horizon:
    • New Products Launching this year
    • Improved Formulas
    • More and better online services
    • Coming Soon: Personal Skin Consultations (online)
    Thank you for supporting us and our crazy idea of creating plant based skincare long before it was hip and before we had a brick and mortar store. In some ways, we're coming full circle -kind of like our practice of Full Circle Beauty.

    We began aos in 2001, selling wholesale to stores and spas and selling retail products online. Going back to that model is an interesting experience, one we're excited about. We've long outgrown our production space- again- and are so excited to find a new and larger space to make all these beautiful things in.

    Change, and hopefully growth, are our constant companions in life.
    I see this move as a graduation of sorts- like when I moved aos from the kitchen in my log cabin to a 600 square foot house downtown in 2008, and then again to our current lovely space on Bond Street.

    Elisa and I have very carefully managed the growth of aos over the years to maintain our exceptionally high standards of quality and this next move is a continuation of that dedication and practice of excellence.


    Your online shopping experience is only going to get better! Check in now and then for updates and be sure to check your email or our social for the same. I'm thrilled to have more time to improve our online store for you all. And thank you to everyone who sends us feedback- we’re all ears for how we can improve your online experience!

    It's been the most wonderous journey.
