About the presenter:
Antedotum founder Karina Perez-Marconi was raised on the island of Puerto Rico (born to a Cuban dad and Puerto Rican mom), which meant consistent sun exposure from an early age—and cumulative sun damage for the Latina’s olive skin. For decades, Karina was plagued by dark spots, which were compounded by lingering, postpartum melasma after the birth of her daughter, Havana. Working for many years in beauty at Chanel’s New York headquarters deepened Karina’s understanding of premium skin care. But finding an antidote to her skin aliments remained elusive. When the family relocated to Aspen, Colorado, the unforgiving mountain climate of dry air, high altitude, wind, sun, and cold only intensified her skin conditions.
In Colorado, CBD was plentiful and prominent. Karina, curious about CBD’s purported curative abilities, started to sample an assortment of oils and balms. None of them smelled or looked great, but to her surprise, her skin started to transform. This unexpected discovery sent her down a rabbit hole of research into the alternative CBD skin care universe. What emerged was Antedotum. Having found the one ingredient that was multi-correctional in every way, Karina’s passion became sharing how CBD helped her achieve remarkable results in the look and feel of her skin.
