ABOUT MICHELE FIELDSON
As far back as I can remember, searching for the right skincare product was a persistent problem that plagued me. For a young woman with skin that didn’t fit neatly into one of the cosmetic industry’s skin-type categories, the search was relentless and unforgiving. Expensive products produced poor results, heavily pushed beauty-counter products missed the mark, and more often than not, my skin felt as dry as a desert instead of dewy like the packaging.
It was only after my sister, Nancy, received a life-altering cancer diagnosis that I saw skin as so much more than just my isolated concerns. Skin, regardless of type or category, is a living, breathing organ…in fact, it’s the largest organ of the human body, worthy of as much gentle care and attention as any other
Exposed to harsh cancer treatments like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, my sister's skin suffered in ways that revealed its true sensitivity. Red and raw, my sister put on a brave face and slathered on skin care products that made the same kind of empty promises I endured. Just like my earlier days, my sister put her trust in product after product to provide the kind of results that the high-end brands ultimately couldn’t provide.
The Journey …
Instead of searching for the perfect skincare product for my own personal benefit, and convinced women needed and deserved something more than generic skin care sold to the masses, my determination turned toward the development of skin care that would benefit women like my sister, me, and so many others. It had to be gentle, yet effective. Results-driven but simplified. It became my mission to solve what they seemingly couldn’t.
I threw myself into studying and researching the physiology of skin, how it behaves, and what it needs to be its best. In the process of sorting through fact and fiction, I worked with formulators to identify ingredients proven to work. From this, Laurmé’s custom collections were created. Combining the potency of natural & organic ingredients with science, Laurmé offers simplified skin care for anti-aging and sensitive skin concerns. Powerfully. Effortlessly.
The Inspiration …
Laurmé Skin Care is inspired by two of the strongest and most courageous women I know. My mom's influence as a true role model and my sister’s bravery – coupled with my mission – drove me to develop the collections that now make up Laurmé’s anti-aging and sensitive skin products.
My mom, Laura, an independent spirit and my greatest inspiration (including naming Laurmé after her), went from homemaker with no job experience to bookkeeper in order to support four young kids on a single-family income. She taught me determination, strength and persevering when giving up is not an option. Without her I could never have taken on this role as entrepreneur.
My sister is my best friend. When she was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, heartbeats throughout our family came to a collective standstill. Standing by watching helplessly as she endured chemotherapy, radiation, and a dozen surgeries, her courage and bravery were the driving force behind creating Laurmé. My greatest desire was to create a sensitive skin care line that was gentle and effective and provided the results she craved.
To that end, I feel fortunate to be doing something that means so much and is making a difference along the way.
Our products are proudly made in the USA, where we can play a part in helping like-minded businesses thrive. Each of our ingredients is responsibly and ethically sourced. In addition to being safe for our customers, Laurmé’s products are also cruelty-free and Leaping Bunny Certified. This third-party certification is our promise to you that no formulation of our skincare line or any of its ingredients have ever been or will ever be tested on animals. As animal lovers ourselves - (Michele is a past volunteer at her local animal shelter and has rescued several dogs and cats over the years) - there’s nothing more important than making sure our products are safe for all!
In addition to being cruelty-free, Laurmé’s products are also environmentally friendly. We use recyclable glass and plastic product packaging and eco-friendly compostable labels. Our shredded packaging material is 100% recyclable and derived from a 140-year-old family-run mill in Niles, Michigan. Water powered to produce electricity from the St. Joseph River, our packaging partner is as focused on sustainability and compostability as we are.
Our travel and gift sets are snuggled in organic cotton bags that are sourced from a non-profit called Work+Shelter, empowering women in India to earn fair wages for their beautiful handiwork.
Because every small step matters.

A portion of all Laurmé proceeds benefits City of Hope, a cancer research center and hospital located in southern California. Their mission: “At City of Hope, we treat you as an individual whose life will be made whole again. We combine science with soul to work miracles.” And indeed they do.
This incredible medical facility is made up of world-renowned doctors, scientists, and researchers who merge knowledge with compassion to make every person suffering through cancer treatment know they are so much more than their physical disease. I have traveled their halls dozens and dozens of time with a family member undergoing treatment. To put an end to cancer requires cutting-edge research, and City of Hope is at the forefront.
The first thing you see on the wall as you enter the main building of City of Hope’s medical campus is a plaque with the words below. It touches my heart and soul every time I see it.
"There is no profit in curing the body if in the process we destroy the soul."
