My name is: Fran Miller.
I’m known for being: The founder of F. Miller, infatuated with plants and snacks, a bit weird.
I'm talking about: F. Miller, the brand I started eight years ago to address my personal skincare needs. I had been struggling with a range of skin sensitivities and only began to find relief and results upon shifting my routine to a simpler, cleaner, more intuitive approach.
Before I created this line, I was: Working in fashion.
What inspired me to launch it was: The lack of thoughtfully designed, consciously created, clean and effective skincare essentials that existed at the time.
How it works is: Each product is multi-purpose and multi-functional with a focus on nourishing, protecting and transforming our skin from the inside out.
What makes it special is: Our house-made herbal infusions that take six weeks to create and go into each product—powerful healing botanicals that leave visible results.
One thing you can’t miss is: The Eye Oil—packed with anti-inflammatory ingredients, at once gentle and restorative, the ultimate aid for tired eyes that multi-tasks for cuticles and lips too.
My favorite secret detail is: The name of our products can be deceiving as every formula we make is multi-use, designed to keep your medicine cabinet lean. For instance, the Eye Oil can be used numerous ways in addition to the obvious: a cheekbone highlighter, lip moisturizer, cuticle oil and more. Our end goal is for everyone to eliminate the excess; and multitasking products help do just that. Based on this ethos, we will always remain highly selective with our product offering and keep to the essentials.
For me, “clean” or “conscious” beauty means: Supportive products that prioritize skin health, integrity, people and the planet.
One ritual you can practice with this line is: Add a few pumps of Body Oil to a warm bath for calming aromatherapy and a built-in layer of replenishing hydration.
It can help you live your process because: It’s essential and effortless; everything you need in the highest quality, and nothing you don’t.
