Céline, Chief Alchemist & CEO 🌿
Céline oversees all aspects of Anato. She sources the ingredients — tree crops and perennial crops— from farmers that use regenerative farming techniques, and finds local or Fairtrade options where available. Céline creates every product through trial-and-error — undertaking, for instance, just under 100 different recipes for the ocean friendly sunblock! She tests the sunscreen out surfing, windsurfing or kiteboarding to make sure it STICKS and fully protects the skin! Céline spent an entire year coming up with the best #LowWaste packaging solution and orchestrates the design and artistic component of Anato.
