My skincare journey: It’s time to look on the bright side.

Kerri_Johanning_BioI have struggled with my skin ever since I was a teenager. On my 46th birthday I looked in the mirror and saw that same teenage acne, plus crows’ feet, and sagging signs of age. It’s not like I wasn’t trying – I had more skincare product in my bathroom than I had room on the shelves but none of those products were helping my skin. They either stripped my skin of its natural oil, causing it to overproduce and give me even more acne, or they did nothing at all. I went on a search for a miracle skincare line, but finally realized that it didn’t exist. I had all but given up when I realized the only real solution was to create my own.

It was shocking to discover that many of the ingredients in my old skincare were on the known carcinogen list. Those ingredients did not help my skin, and to make matters worse they put me in danger! Since I had recently lost two dear friends to cancer I knew these synthesized ingredients were not an option. My skincare products would have to be effective using only safe and natural ingredients.

I started working with a lab that doesn’t test on animals, is FDA approved, USDA Organic Certified, and is in compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). After much self-testing, friend-testing, and even husband-testing, my skincare line became a reality. The mission to create the perfect combination of ingredients to achieve beautiful skin and keep me looking youthful in addition to being carcinogen-free was accomplished! This is for all of the people who want a safe natural skincare line that is effective at reducing the signs of age, sun damage, wrinkles, acne, dark under eye circles and puffiness.

All of our products come in recyclable containers without unnecessary outer packaging. Bottles can be opened so you are able to get all of the product out saving wasted money on product being trapped inside. We have won the Green Professional Award from the WI Sustainable Business Council every year since we opened! We are also proud to be an accredited BBB member.

Why the name Brightside? That was the easy part. Now that I’m feeling healthy and happy about my skin – I’m always looking on the bright side! The flower? That was also easy. Flowers are beautiful, natural, pure and fresh just like Brightside.

Now I know our best years are ahead of us!
