Meet the Maker
“Hello! My name is Nicolina, I am the owner of Matka Essentials. My greatest passions in life include natural beauty and interacting with plants, which i have combined to serve my purpose in the clean beauty revolution of the 21st century. With the knowledge and wisdom of plants we can achieve wondruous things for not only our skin but the rest of our physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
I graduated from Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2017 as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and from a 3-year cosmetology and aesthetics program in Helsinki in 2012. I spent most of my teenage years battling chronic digestive problems, eating disorders, depression, and hormonal imbalances, which in turn affected my skin in various ways. As far as the skin goes, there is no one-solution-fits-all kind of deal, every single person is unique. In my years of practice, however, i have come across a few techniques and botanicals that have made the world of a difference every single time.
As a fully registered holistic nutritionist, certified esthetician, and skincare formulator I provide guidence towards a more natural approach and understanding of the body and how to feel and look your best in the cleanest way possible.“
