Based in Flagstaff, AZ, Peak Scents was founded over 25 years ago by DeeAnn Tracy Brown, Clinical Herbalist, and natural skincare enthusiast, with the intention to provide beauty products that use natural ingredients, nourish the skin, and that actually work.
A Word From Our Founder
After 25 years in the business, I owe my staying power to my tenacity and being truly dedicated to the cause. From the beginning, I've felt it's my calling to create a company that people can trust to provide clarity and care when choosing ingredients and to create products that are truly beneficial.
As a young child, I was often taken on medicinal plant treasure hunts in the Gila River area in Arizona. It was there that my mother, Phyllis Hogan (an Ethnobotanist, and Herbalist), would first introduce me to the world of plants.
While attending Northern Arizona University, I apprenticed at Winter Sun Trading Company (the family business and apothecary) where my eyes were opened to the power of wildcrafted, organic herbs. I came to realize I wanted to learn more about the potential power of these herbs in the beauty realm and went on to study herbal medicine with the late master herbalist, Michael Moore at the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine.
When I returned I began to manage my mother's store and I became a river guide on the Colorado River in The Grand Canyon. This experience, combined with living in such a dry climate, led me to begin creating skincare products to soothe, repair and restore my skin without using harsh chemicals. This interest in natural beauty formulations would inspire me to help educate people about what they were putting on their skin.
In 1993, combining my knowledge of herbal medicine, nutrition, and aromatherapy, I decided to follow my calling and create original formulas that don't rely on harmful chemicals and preservatives to help heal the skin, under the umbrella of Peak Scents. The combination of natural ingredients that I chose worked really well. When the demand and love for the products starting blossoming, I knew I was on the right path.
Together, my sister and I created Power Repair by Sister Creations™ and Body Nurish™, two all-natural skincare lines that focus on nourishing and restoring the skin.
Through my research, I learned how peptides and plant stem cells feed your skin and restore tone, texture and cellular structure. I am passionate about continuing education and bringing these natural remedies to mindful consumers, so once I became a mother I was motivated to venture out on my own and create the Organic Rose Phyto³ line.
In a youth-driven society, experience isn't always valued. There is so much pressure on women to look young and I believe it's not about anti-aging but rather aging gracefully. I am inspired by my mother, Phyllis Hogan. She's spunky, energetic, happy and hey, she has a few wrinkles! She's taught me that you don't have to grow old energetically. She also taught me to trust the earth and her natural resources that we have been given. When we trust the Earth and see her value we, in turn, want to care for her.
My hope is for you to know that I have passionately dedicated my life to learning and growing a skincare line that supports you to care for yourself. I feel honored to be a part of that and I hope when you use my products you feel safe, nurtured and know they come from a heartfelt place.
