Wander Beauty, a line of multitasking beauty essentials, to keep women everywhere gorgeous on the go.

With fewer products that let you do more means less time at the vanity and more space in your beauty bag. All of their multitaskers are enriched with clean, globally sourced, skin-loving ingredients that work with your skin, not against it. 

Divya Gugnani, serial entrepreneur & mom of two, co-founded Wander Beauty to keep women everywhere gorgeous on the go. 


Recommended by hairstylists, beauty experts and dermatologists, Slipsilk and their products are dedicated to ensure the ultimate beauty sleep. Say hello to smooth skin and hair, and goodbye to frizz and wrinkles!  

Founder Fiona Stewart was a longtime sufferer of painfully sensitive skin caused by cystic acne. Her dermatologist told her that sleeping on a silk pillowcase would be far more gentle on her skin and hair than traditional cotton or linen cases. Seeing the beauty benefits, she launched Slip with her husband in 2004.
