Magnesium Skin Care? Vegan? Cruelty-free? Great for your skin & for your body?!

If this is what you’ve been seeking, then Welcome to the world of Awakening Mineral Skin Care!

My name is Rob Hardwicke and I helped to form Awakening back in 1994 with brothers Bob & Marty Fischer. The lady in the picture is Maryann, my alter-ego, spouse and chief cheerleader to keep Awakening (and me) on track.

Awakening is about as ‘hands-on’ as a company can get. There’s Suzanne, who copes with the finances and conspires with Maryann. Scott deals with customer service and shipping (and is our jack-of-all-trades). Russ is the Excel wizard who models Awakening’s future and suggests what it will take to get us there. Tim (aka TJoe) lends a hand with our inside sales and folksy customer chitchat. Jean-Yve holds down the Awakening fort in Israel.. Shlomi is our gifted chemist who finds the way to formulate our naturally super non-greasy/non-sticky/healing, mineral-rich creams, lotions, emollients, shampoos, conditioners and masques. Mark is our soap-maker extraordinaire. Rich, Bob, Marty and Gary sit on Awakening’s board, and Trudi is the comapany’s mascot Norwich Terrier who does her own ‘sitting’ on Suzanne’s desk (and occasionally keyboard) to add that random element of surprise to Awakening’s financial statements!

Awakening exists to make our customers healthy and happy. Either our products delight, or we refund the purchase price with no questions asked (which, fortunately, we seldom have been called upon to do), but when we have been, we have done it happily!

We have loyal customers who have been with us literally for decades. We run sales with very large discounts once or twice each year, so consider joining our email list by clicking here. We never sell or share our customers’ information with anyone.

Our mailing & shipping address is in the tiny community of Canyon, California (roughly 250 inhabitants), aptly named the “Last Rustic Enclave in Metropolitan America”. The hamlet is located, as the crow flies, about 1 mile from the Oakland city limits, yet it might as well be in the back woods of Mendocino County and 99% of the San Francisco Bay Area population has zero idea that Canyon is even here. Kind of nice to be invisible!

...and here’s a parting comment by one of our customers:

Awakening’s products have become an essential part of my and my family’s life! Containers of Awakening’s amazing hand and foot creams are everywhere. Dry skin is a distant memory in our household, and I give your products as gifts all the time. If there’s a company with better customer service on this earth, I have yet to find it!
