Joanna Draniak-Kicinska, the Founder

Joanna Draniak-Kicińska, the creator of {save} brand

 

 {save} is your safe refuge in the overloaded skin care market

It is no secret we live in an era of tight schedules, fast decisions, pressure to succeed and serious information and sensory overload. We tend to look more and more often for a refuge, an escape, a way to slow down for a moment. We want to get back to more natural life rythm and get rid of the chaos, we simplify, declutter in order to make place for the most meaningful people, places, things. Joanna Draniak-Kicińska decided to launch a skin care brand that is an answer to this need that she also felt growing. She knew this industry since she was small as her mother owned a cosmetic company and she herself was working for over 15 years in this business. Joanna wanted to create simple formulas, without unnecessary additives and chemicals, inspired by natural resources and protecting women's skin from harsh environment.
Simple, minimalist, straightforward.
