About Us

Founder and Formulator, Kimberly Hovstadius

Espalier Natural Botanics was established in Westport, Connecticut, by Kimberly Hovstadius, a certified natural skincare formulator and aromatherapist. Espalier was founded in 2016, but its products were cultivated many years earlier by Kimberly’s passion for organic gardening and healthy living. As a breast cancer survivor, she only uses ingredients that are free from toxins to promote overall health and wellbeing. Focused on sourcing the purest natural and organic raw ingredients, Kimberly formulates high-performance plant-based products by using vital skin nutrients and antioxidants to nourish and optimize your skin.
