April 19, 2016

Tired of having red, itchy or inflamed skin?

We typically medicate these conditions topically with corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, or chemical...

Cool Cat: Sarah Hallacher

August 27, 2015

Cats, Patterns, Speech Bubbles and Bright Colors. That’s a simplified description of the MMT packaging. Our co-founder, Jeff, is responsible for the quirky animal drawings on all of our labels. Often the drawings are lifted directly from miscellaneous papers that he’s doodled on. They’re unfussy and irreverent- they’re little jokes and stories that we tell in the studio- we don’t belabor them, so they have a lighthearted, whimsical spirit.

A few years ago, we started working with Sarah Hallacher on our branding and packaging design...

Fatty Acids are the Key

March 10, 2015

Specifically, lineolic vs. oleic acid. Lineolic acid is a fatty acid that is naturally present in your skin’s sebum (the oil produced by your skin to protect it from the elements). A deficiency in lineolic acid causes the skin to produce sebum with high levels of oleic acid which is dry and sticky and may lead to blackheads and clogged pores.
