About us

Farm to table? How about Farm to Face.

At Hudson Valley Skin Care, we believe in the power of nature and sustainability, which is why we’re here to bring you skincare powered by our community.

There’s just something about the Hudson Valley that makes it like no other. Hiking through the mountains, swimming under waterfalls, and going to local farmers markets is what makes us who we are, which is why it makes sense that we incorporate a piece of the Hudson Valley into every product. Locally sourcing our favorite ingredients allows us to share a little bit of the Hudson Valley magic into each product to produce high quality, affordable skincare.  

We handcraft each batch at our lab facility located in Pleasant Valley, New York and never test on animals.

The Founder

Meet Cathie Arpino. She started her career as a cosmetic chemist in 1988 formulating products for brands like Estee Lauder, Shiseido and Coty. In 1996, she became a mother to her first daughter, which began a new chapter in her life residing in the Hudson Valley, where she later became a nurse.

In 2012, Cathie found her way back to her passion, skincare through her husband, Glenn, a compounding pharmacist with a background in formulating hair and skin products. The idea came to life when Glenn started to get requests for natural products. This inspired Cathie to get back in the lab and combine her love of science and nature to create Hudson Valley Skin Care, where indulgence meets affordability.
