Friends and former beauty industry colleagues we met early on in our careers and have over 20 years’ experience in beauty in London and New York. Self-confessed beauty and skincare obsessives, our 40’s sparked a whole new conversation around our changing skin.
Suffering from perimenopausal symptoms yet unaware of ‘perimenopause’ was a very confusing time. We put our many physical and psychological changes down to busy, demanding lives. The more we confided in each other the more we understood what was happening and the realisation was shocking, why didn’t anyone tell us about this?!
We have created Living M for the millions of women just like us. We believe we don't talk about menopause and midlife enough. We're on a mission to normalise perimenopause and menopause. We're on a mission to positively change the conversation around ageing.

OUR BRAND VALUES
LIFE IS FOR LIVING
The menopause is one of the greatest physical changes we will go through in our life and every woman will have a different experience. We believe we don’t talk about menopause and midlife enough and when we do it isn’t overwhelmingly positive. Changing the way we talk about these experiences will help to positively change attitudes and better inform ourselves about how we can prepare for the many physical and psychological changes ahead. Now is a good opportunity to evaluate what is and isn’t working in your life and make changes that will serve you better for the future and a healthier, happier you.
Our lives can be overloaded and it’s important to try and find time for ourselves, we know from our own personal experiences that’s far easier said than done. Current trends for complicated skincare regimes can be time consuming, expensive and confusing but we can take steps to simplify and focus on smarter solutions for better results. Living M believes there is true value in exceptional multi-benefit products. Rather than extensive multi product regimes (peri)menopausal skin needs targeted solutions for radiant, healthy skin.
WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER
So, they say ‘it takes a village’ and we don’t think menopause should be any different. The help and support we can give and receive to friends and family will truly make a difference to change the perspective of perimenopause and menopause in our society, from our homes, our relationships, our friendships and our workplace. Living M has been developed with a community of women and we will continue to expand this group as we further develop the brand offering so that we are supporting all aspects of their lives.
We are conscious of our impact on the environment and have chosen to be manufactured in the UK with a 100% recyclable airless pump pack. Our products are cruelty free and vegan. As our business grows we are committed to continually evaluate and evolve our brand and business impact on our environment.
