THE FLO+THEO STORY
FLO+THEO founded in Queens, NY formulates 100% vegan skin care products, utilizing only the freshest ingredients suitable even for the most delicate skin. The conception of FLO+THEO grew out a real need, that of the founders to find suitable products for their sensitive skin. Through years of research, learning and experimentation, they were able to create nutritious and beneficial formulations. The creation of FLO+THEO brings together the founders love for creativity, innovation and healthy skin care.
The brand is a collaboration between two sisters, Mayowa and Ebony. Born in Nigeria and raised in England and Ireland, the two sisters now call Queens, NYC, home. FLO+THEO is named after two great heroes in their lives, the FLO stands for Florence, their mother's name whist the THEO is in honor and memory of their Uncle.
MEET THE TEAM
Truly believing that less can be more, Mayowa co-founded FLO+THEO in order to create simple yet effective products. With a background in Software Engineering and E-commerce, she is often tinkering away on the FLO+THEO website and handling the more technical aspects of the business. When not working on FLO+THEO, she can be found around stores in NYC looking for vintage fashion gems. She loves expressing herself through fashion, doesn't take it too seriously and is obsessed with all things glittery and shiny.
Inspired and passionate about all things beauty, co-founder Ebony left a career in law, in order to follow her dreams, of starting FLO+THEO. Now, instead of finding her in a courtroom, you can now find her and her sister, around markets in NYC, introducing vegan, artisanal skin care products to savvy New Yorkers. Ebony enjoys entrepreneurship (thinks being a co-founder of FLO+THEO is awesome), photography and looking for delicious and strange things to eat in NYC.
