Welcome gorgeous! I’m Cody Montarbo, Founder of Montarbo Skincare in beautiful San Diego.
Since I was a child, I’ve been obsessed with beautiful skin, makeup and skincare products. But after struggling with my own skin and working for many skincare lines, I got frustrated with not seeing sustainable results on myself and my clients.
So in 2005, I created my first skincare line in my kitchen using all natural ingredients. Since then I've been through several reformulations and no longer make skincare in my kitchen.
Today I work closely with several compounding labs, expert cosmeceutical formulators and quality skincare scientist that I trust. I curate and bring to market the most effective ingredients and formulas that consistently deliver reliable results to my clients.
Often cosmeceutical skincare products are misunderstood and can be extremely expensive. Many people don’t believe they offer a significant difference compared to drugstore brands.
In my experience, I've found that the right formulation of cosmeceuticals ingredients offer exceptional results because they are formulated with a concentrated amount of stable, active ingredients that you just don’t find over the counter.
Thousands of our clients have experienced dramatic and sustainable results when they combine our professional spa treatments with a proper home care regimen.
I stand behind our products and ingredients, as I test them thoroughly both in office on my personal clients and at home before I add a new product to the store. I never add a new product unless I see actual changes in the skin and my clients say, “OMG - I need this, when can I buy it?"
For nearly twenty years, I've been on a mission to help women have the most healthy, gorgeous skin possible. I believe every woman deserves to feel confident, sexy and beautiful without needing to wear a lot of makeup or foundation (unless that’s your thing!).
I personally do whatever it takes to help my clients achieve incredible skin and unbelievable results with simple, active ingredients. It’s an honor to be trusted with someone's face, and not something that I take lightly.
What I love most about what I do is seeing my client's smile and glow with confidence. I'm humbled daily by the difference my passion and obsession makes in women’s lives.
At Montarbo Skincarestore.com, you can ALWAYS expect to receive exceptional customer service and the highest quality professional grade skincare products at an affordable price.
I hope that I can earn your trust one day and help you have the most healthy, glowing and gorgeous skin possible.
