about drifter organics (old)

We are the skincare solution for anyone who wouldn't put anything on their skin they wouldn't trust eating.

Drifter Organics was born out of my (Micaela) chronic illnesses. I've had eczema as far back as I can remember — as in I remember coming home from preschool with bloody hands because the skin on my hands was so irritated, I would literally rub them on the rug in the classroom to relieve the itchiness. In 2014, I started proactively searching for a diagnosis. I was initially diagnosed with idiopathic leaky gut and dysbiosis (an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria in the gut). I had always been a healthy eater, but to heal my leaky gut, I had to eliminate a lot of foods from my diet, which meant revamping my entire skincare regimen. In 2019, I was diagnosed with gastroparesis which means my stomach is partially paralyzed. With the amount of time my mom and I invested into finding suitable skincare options for me, we decided to make them ourselves. If I had difficulty finding skincare I could use, we figured others must be in the same situation — especially with food allergies and sensitivities being more widely recognized — so why not create a safe alternative for everyone?
