My family is a unique kind of messy but beautiful. We run barefoot, play in the mud, and sit in the sun. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My name is Taygen, I am a skin therapist and skincare formulator for our small business- mud + otis. For me, creation has always been a form of therapy, a form of play.
In childhood, I would make mud pies and create potions full of nature. I felt most myself with my feet in the sand and mud in my hands. In my twenties, I attended Rinaldi's College of Aesthetics to refine my skill set and discovered how important it is to bring the riches of nature into the products I craft. At first, I created for love - skincare for my friends and family, and then products for my sweet firstborn, Otis. Mud + Otis became second nature to me, not only my love for crafting the products but also for creating the brand.
Mud + Otis redefines beauty by providing skincare products that are handcrafted, ethical, raw and natural. We value of pureness, authenticity and creativity help our audience feel connected to the earth and build a routine that serves not only their skin but their soul.
