With extensive backgrounds in the cosmetics & healthcare industries, the co-founders of Zyderma learned much about the harmful ingredients in most skin care products and the resulting side effects. And as doting parents and friends of sufferers with different skin disorders, they became increasingly concerned with the lack of skin-friendly products.
During their research & development process, Zyderma explored the impact of a common underlying issue of skin disorders such as acne & eczema: the overgrowth of harmful bacteria.
"Long story short, you could say we've taken the approach of creating a product that supports our body’s own natural healing system & built-in pharmacy, as opposed to trying to replace it. We believe this is a more responsible approach to skincare than solely relying on medicated ointments, clarifying creams with harsh ingredients and sanitizers that strip healthy organisms (or microflora) that our skin relies upon to maintain a healthy and balanced appearance."

Wild Hill Botanicals is a skincare line based on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. Our connection to this landscape and our ongoing study of the amazing botanicals it has to offer has been the inspiration for our formulations.
We believe that organic is just plain better. Organic ingredients have been shown to be higher in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Wild plants are known to contain many molecules not present in their domesticated cousins. This core value of bringing together organic and sustainably harvested wild ingredients serves not only your skin, but also the greater environment, which we take very much to heart.
We focus on growing organic herbs on our farm in East Sooke, using the freshest organic oils and house made hydrosols to craft products that are amazing, completely natural and inspired by the landscape of this beautiful coast. We take pride at Wild Hill in creating each of our products in small batches by hand to ensure freshness and quality control.
We think that skincare and bath rituals should be a gratifying and important part of self-care in everyone's day. Love yourself, take some downtime from this hectic world, and absorb the power of nature.

Growing up on the Mediterranean coast, Fouad played in a backyard full of olive trees. He remembers visiting the olive press with his father and uncle, and always putting aside the last few batches for soap. As a young girl in Surrey, Sonia would hand-roll cotton wicks with her mother, who had learned the practice from Sonia's grandmother back home in India. The cotton wicks were used to create tea-lights, intended to burn all day.

"I created this all-natural lash and brow enhancing formula after seeing family members and friends use harmful chemical serums and eyelash extensions that came with many negative and harmful side effects, including eczema on a loved one's eyelids. I found a void in the market where existing lash serums were either full of chemicals, very overpriced, or some claiming to be all-natural, when in fact they were not.
At a young age, I suffered from many allergies and skin conditions. I was introduced to cultural herbal medicine through my parents, and this really impacted my life growing up. Once I started focussing on holistic health, this made a big difference and fuelled my transformation not only in appearance, but in spirit.
