FORZA is on a mission to help us strengthen from the inside out.
Based in Toronto, FORZA is an innovative all-natural skincare brand, founded by Certified Esthetician/Skincare Specialist Jessica Hutchinson.
After graduating and becoming a Certified Esthetician, Jessica travelled internationally to learn from some of the best in the industry, who not only specialize in skin care, but also in aromatherapy. Jessica then began working at a spa she had always dreamt of working at. During her years working at the spa, it had won #1 Spa in Canada and Jessica was thrilled to be a part of that experience!
With years of experience and knowledge, Jessica felt as though it was time to take control, and share her passion with others. Not only did she have a passion for all-natural and effective products, she also had a true passion to take care of others, and help people feel their best.
That is when FORZA was born.
“Prior to launching FORZA [in December 2020], I had been working full-time as a Certified Esthetician at one of the top award-winning spas in Canada. After so many years in the industry and endlessly learning about how the skin functions, what ingredients are most beneficial to the skin, and the importance of using products with clean ingredients, I felt inspired to put my knowledge and passion to a bigger cause and take control; that’s when I created FORZA.”
With all of the products handmade in Toronto from natural ingredients – including 100% pure essential oils – Jessica’s mission is to provide the ultimate toxin-free skincare experience that strengthens from the inside out.
“FORZA stands for Strength. Strength to move forward, strength to show up for the people we love, strength to care for ourselves so we can continue to evolve. Self-care and self-love seemingly go hand-in-hand. The time we take for ourselves allows us to be the best we can be.”
What makes FORZA different from other skincare brands?
FORZA stands out from other skincare brands for many different reasons.
No matter the skin type, we’ve got you covered. Our product formulas are created to benefit any and all skin types, making it super easy for anyone to put together the perfect skincare and self-care regime. We make it super easy to navigate through each product to read product benefits and why each product may be the right one for you. When in doubt, you can let us know what skin concerns you are trying to target, and we will help put together a skin-transforming regime for you!
Pregnant, breastfeeding or have allergies? No problem! We are completely open to adjusting a product formulation for you in case there’s a certain essential oil you may be sensitive to. We want to help you experience self-care like none other while ensuring maximum relaxation.
FORZA works with you. Look at us as you’re local Esthetician that you can come to for any skincare advice you may have!
How did you research and develop the formulations for your skincare products?
Extensive research is a must when it comes to selecting ingredients that will be a part of any magical formula. Over the years I’ve kept important skincare notes and ingredient guides that have been extremely beneficial to our product formulation. I have also had the wonderful opportunity to travel abroad to learn aromatherapy and skincare from some of the best in the industry, and I’m so honoured to be able to apply their advice to my formulations to make for the absolute best natural products and remedies.
Is there anyone in particular who has supported/inspired you along this journey?
I am so thankful to say that all of my close friends and family have been an incredible support system through this journey thus far. They inspire and motivate me to do my absolute best. Without their words of encouragement or assistance, FORZA would not be where it is today. They push me to do better and pay attention to the little things, and I couldn’t be more grateful for each of them.
What do you love most about being a small business owner?
What I love the most about being the owner of FORZA is being able to express myself not only through my products, but our Instagram posts too! I’m an extremely creative person, so to be able to take photos and create fun posts keeps things extremely exciting for me. I also love that I’ve been able to grow my brand and now have so many people believe in me and my vision! It’s something I will never take for granted. I’m excited for what the future holds!
What’s some great feedback you’ve received from happy customers?
I am so thankful that we have received some amazing feedback over the last year! We’ve heard a few different things customers have pointed out, number one being that our products truly work, which makes us so incredibly happy! From body care to skincare, many of our customers have noticed a significant increase in bounce and hydration in their skin. This makes us even more excited to launch our brand new up and coming skincare! Our customers also tend to notice and appreciate our packaging. Our packaging is sustainable and eco-friendly, making our products guilt-free all around.
Future plans for FORZA?
The future plan for FORZA is to continue to create innovative skincare products to help people feel confident in their skin. I hope to see FORZA grow and reach a larger audience while maintaining an exclusive brand!
Together, let’s strengthen from the inside out
