About Our Founder


I am Teresa Foo, the Founder and Organic Skincare Formulator of Balm Kitchen. What started my journey into Clean and Green Beauty was the search for a well-priced, plant-based lip balm that can help me with my dry lips with the occasional cold sores. I also needed to find a natural and gentler solution for my son, then 3 years old, who had atopic eczema (he was prescribed steroid cream). 

With much research, I managed to create very simple and effective natural lip balms and body balms with just a few ingredients such as Sweet almond oil, Coconut oil and Cocoa butter. I proceeded to further deepen my knowledge in using gentle and effective botanical ingredients by studying professional organic skin care formulation at Formula Botanica.

I am very passionate about Clean, Green & Sustainable Beauty and enjoy sharing my knowledge with everyone in my workshops.

I believe in creating safe and effective botanical skincare and simply the best Nourishing Skin Food for you and your family. This is the same promise I will give to you as I take care of my own family.
