About me

On a mission to steal cook’s ingredients 
& turn them into homemade beauty. 

Hi, I am Claudia, I am Italian but currently living in Dublin. 
I created the beautiful spoon to share ideas, inspiration and tools to empower you to naturally nourish your skin & hair the same way you would do for your body with food. Indeed, my beauty recipes are inspired by the seasonal ingredients I find in my kitchen. 
How did I start?
After a short experience in the beauty corporate world in 2015 I became passionate about DIY cosmetics due to my very sensitive skin which tends to develop allergies. Beauty routine is an evolving journey of discovery and adaptation. Your skin and hair adapts and reacts to both the external environment and your internal physiological balance. 
Over the past years I have lived in 3 different countries (Italy, France and Ireland), I have changed 6 flats, 4 jobs and, along the journey, my dietary habits have evolved driven by my never-ending curiosity for tasting and living locally. Many times, my skin and hair has shown changes maybe due to the atmosphere in the new city, maybe for the changed hardness of the water or the degree of humidity in the air. Each of those times I found myself asking what was wrong and why that one cream or shampoo I had been using since months did not feel as good as before. It seemed that I became allergic to ingredients that I could not identify.
Therefore, I decided that I wanted to make my own beauty recipes so that they could be transparent and tailored to my skin’s needs. One day a friend offered me a box with base kits for face creams but I still found the creation process too complicated and rigid. There was not enough space to express creativity. The ingredients looked so elaborated and many of them I had never heard of before. I started imagining the possibility of creating beauty recipes that anyone would be able to make with the accessible ingredients you find at home or in the grocery markets of your town. I decided to take on a mission to steal the cook's ingredients and turn them into homemade beauty. 
This is how the idea of “the beautiful spoon” was born in December 2019. I choose the spoon as a visualisation of “measuring out..roughly”, just like some ingredient in your food recipes. This is exactly the way I imagined my beauty recipes to be: just enough balanced to be called “recipe” but also flexible enough to allow you to twist it and add your own touch. 

Later on, in March 2020, I started studying Cold process soap and I ended up finding this new chapter of testing and adjusting formulas very exciting. 

I hope you will get inspired by my recipes and that you will change them again and again by adding your own twist...or just that ingredient you have found in your food storage ;)

With a lot of love for your beauty,
