What We Care About

How We Show It

Women

Women’s empowerment

{save} skincare is a story of women taking their own power, going all the way back to the company’s beginnings. CEO Joanna Draniak-Kicínska was born into a company that was started by her mother, just after the fall of communism in Poland. Joanna’s mother wasn’t afraid to be bold and take a risk, and raised a daughter who was fierce and bold just like her.
