Thrilled to have our new Skin Studio highlighted as a new and upcoming business in San Clemente, California. The San Clemente Times.

Lisa Brill said she was struggling to find adequate skincare products that fit her needs as well as something that was a healthy alternative to synthetic compounds.
"I saw a change [in my own skin, hair, and health] and wanted to make it happen," she said.
Brill, owner and founder of Qēt Botanicals and a San Clemente native, started her business in 2013 in Wisconsin, but moved back to San Clemente in 2017.
"Most of our business is online, but we like to have a little something in the community where we live," Brill said. Qēt emphasizes the use of all-natural products mixed with botanical oils that are vetted through the Environmental Working Group, an organization that specializes in research of toxic chemicals and agricultural subsidies. Through the Skin Deep database, people are able to track whether the products they use are all-natural or not. The list also includes products that may not be deemed safe for human use. Nothing that goes into Qēt Botanicals products are synthetic, Brill said, who started using her own line after negative experiences with other products.
Qēt offers lines for all skin types, including oily, normal, combination and dry skin. Some of the products are batched together in "skin suites" that come in packages for various uses.
They also offer products for hair and body such as bath melts, serums and shaving oils.
