Since 2016 President and CEO, Pamela Friedman, entrepreneur and beauty industry expert, has led CV Skinlabs®, with her vision, expertise and passion for healthy living. An seasoned entrepreneur, and thought leader in the clean and safe beauty space, known for her business acumen, creative marketing, brand-building and product development skills, she’s dedicated to helping create awareness about potentially harmful ingredients in personal care products, foods and the environment, and providing natural solutions for health and wellness. After seeing first-hand, the rampant use of chemical toxins in the health and beauty industry, and concerned about the effects that they have on health and skin related issues, she’s mission-driven to merge health and beauty – providing products with amazing results that don’t compromise safety, that help transform and reclaim healthy and beautiful skin.

CV Skinlabs® seeks to educate and advocate the utmost caution and care in the creation of all personal care products. We strive for the betterment of not only of the skin’s condition, but the health of the entire body, mind, and spirit.

Setting a new standard for safety, CV Skinlabs® provides a range of specially formulated skin care products that can be used with peace of mind by all ages, gender and skin types, particularly by those with sensitive skin, chemical sensitivities, medically treated skin, and skin compromised by environmental aggressors, hormonal shifts, dermatologic treatments (chemical peels, lasers, microdermabrasion) and reactions to medication and illness. Targeted solution formulas help smooth and correct problem skin conditions, like eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, chronic dryness, and help prevent breakdown of the skin barrier (essential to prevent premature aging), combat inflammation, irritation and redness common to sensitive skin.

The result: an award-winning range of safe, non-toxic of products to repair and restore radiance to even the most sensitive and fragile skin.

CV Skinlabs® was originally founded in 2013, by Britta Aragon after failing to find safe, healing skincare products to soothe her father’s troubled (burning, itching, flaking) skin during his battle with cancer. She found that many conventional skincare products specifically targeted for “sensitive skin,” actually irritated fragile skin, and were often laden with potentially harmful chemicals.

An expert team was engaged to research and develop CV Skinlabs® products. The products were formulated and tested by a team of ingredient and development experts, holistic chemists, leading dermatologists, and a toxicologist, to work with the skin’s biology to nurture, protect and deeply hydrate without harmful chemicals. Refusing to use ingredients that may have links to hormone disruption, cancer, skin irritation and allergies, or other health risks-and by putting each product through a rigorous safety and clinical testing for purity, tolerance, and customer satisfaction-CV Skinlabs® formulations are effective, soothing, and truly worthy of being called “safe.”
