About Kristal

I grew up in Massachusetts, spending most of my time at my Nonna and Papa's house on Cape Cod where I learned to cook before I could even see over the counter. Nonna’s famous sauce started in the garden collecting fresh tomatoes and herbs like basil and parsley. Some of my best childhood memories are of experimenting in the kitchen, where I learned the value of using fresh, natural ingredients as well as how to create my very own recipes.

When I became an esthetician in 2011, I fell in love with skincare and how certain ingredients combined with the proper regimen can completely transform a person’s skin and give them the confidence they deserve. 


Always wary of questionable ingredients in skincare products, it was when I was pregnant with my son in 2015 that I became passionate about using natural products.  When I started collecting the essentials to experiment with making my own creations, it was like going back to Nonna’s garden, and I have no doubt she guided my every step along the way.


I truly feel like my whole life has led to this point where I can create healthy, nourishing skin products that you’ll love using every day!

 

Kristal's Story

 

Let's face it, there's a million natural and organic skincare lines out there, so what makes Daily Comfort by Kristal different?  

Let's start with how all of this got started in the first place. I have always been interested in natural products but it was in 2015 when I was pregnant with my first baby that I became investigative and learned that there were several harsh chemicals that were in some of the products I was using and therefore, subjecting my baby to.

I started my research and began experimenting with creating my own recipes for skincare by doing exactly what my Nonna had taught me years ago in the kitchen: using what grows in nature.

So I chose each ingredient with a very specific purpose to not only nourish your skin but also comfort your soul because like you, I have gone through some pretty difficult times in my life and searched for a source of comfort. 


As a little girl, I had my first real crush on the boy who lived across the street from my grandparents. I would go out in the yard any time I visited in hopes of catching a glimpse of him and his brothers playing catch just so I could wave hello and then run back inside. He was a year older than me so we went to the same school for a bit and I would pray to pass him in the halls. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe one day he would actually be my boyfriend but that day came and we spent 6 months together as a couple in our early twenties.


It was in 2006 driving home in a snow storm from a wedding I was in that we lost control of the car and were in a horrific accident that left me in a drug-induced coma with very serious injuries and the loss of someone very special to me. We were on the dance floor one minute and he was gone the next. I never even got to say goodbye and I can't tell you what that felt like. 


Years later, after my first baby was born, I suffered from post-partum anxiety, something I didn't even know existed. I was petrified something horrible was going to happen to my son and found myself hiding in the bathroom to cry. Simple tasks such as giving him a bath or taking him for a walk left me in a total panic. I wouldn't let anyone else hold him and even pushed my loving husband away. I felt so alone and afraid.


Because I know what it feels like to feel isolated and afraid, it was so important to me to create a skincare line that had very specific ingredients chosen not just to heal and replenish your skin, but also your soul. 

It is my wish that you smell the lavender and it calms you, feel the cocoa butter and it comforts you, spritz the rose and feel loved, and savor the calendula flower with it's many healing properties because each ingredient was chosen with a very specific purpose for you. 

You are not alone my friend, and you deserve to start and end each day with something beautiful just like you. 

Love, 

Kristal

I know I can accomplish absolutely nothing without the grace of God who led my every step here.

Thank you to my husband, Nick, who expected greatness from me. You're never surprised at any success of mine and you are truly my very best friend.

To my three babies, you are my everything. Being your mom will always be my biggest joy and greatest accomplishment. This company is dedicated to you.
