We had the good fortune of connecting with Sharon Skaar & Erin Dodd and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sharon Skaar & Erin Dodd, what do you attribute your success to?
At TreCeuticals, we’re all about building relationships, networking, collaborating, inspiring women and giving back to our community. We’re a team of passionate, talented, driven, and resilient women focused on creating game changing skincare solutions. We believe that skincare should be easy, so we made it that way!
Our goal has always been to create a solution driven team that inspires creativity, kindness, and respect. Not to mention we have allot of fun!
We’re especially proud of our Brand Advocate program that is all about individuals sharing their love and passion for TreCeuticals. We pay them a healthy commission for every sale they bring our way. We are very happy to say that our Advocates now span all across the US! Truly they’re the backbone of our company!
What should our readers know about your business?
Like so many start-ups, TreCeuticals was born on the back of a cocktail napkin while sitting around a fire pit! We’d grown tired of jumping from one brand to the next looking for products that actually lived up to their hype. We understood the need for scientifically proven active ingredients for effective anti-aging, but still felt something was missing. That’s when we decided to combine medical grade retinol, hydroxy acids and antioxidants with nature by infusing all of our products with full spectrum CBD. TreCeuticals is a game changer in the skincare industry!
There are a lot of medical grade skincare brands on the market and a lot of CBD skincare. CBD is such a great ingredient because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also a powerful antioxidant, but CBD alone won’t anti-age your skin. You need the scientific workhorses to truly see results. TreCeuticals combines both active ingredients and CBD into a simple to use system that is gender neutral, naturally derived, non-GMO, gluten free AND vegan! Not to mention Leaping Bunny certified. We would never test on animals!!
Launching a business during Covid was insane!! The supply chain is a mess and nothing seemed to come together or on-time. That’s when the passion kicks in and you do whatever it takes to make it work. Where there’s a will…there’s a way! There’s no stopping these two blondes!!! We rolled up our sleeves and did things the old fashioned way….with hard work, sheer grit and determination. We keep our core values in mind every single day. Those values are being an ethical, transparent company that strives to maintain integrity in everything we do and to give back in every way possible. Our promise….you give us 30 days and we’ll give you your glow back!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First, our husbands Chris and Cliff have held our hearts and hands through all the highs and lows and believe us when we say highs and lows! Launching in the middle of the pandemic was beyond challenging but it’s now two years later and we are thriving. Chris and Cliff are literally the wind beneath our wings! . They’re willing to dig deep in the trenches, get dirty and do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Secondly, a big thank you to our “SISTERHOOD”. Our mission is to inspire women to rise-up and be the best they can be. It’s never too late to begin again! We are extremely passionate about giving back to our community and providing women with a platform to gain confidence, inspiration and give them the tools to achieve their own personal and professional goals. We’ve been traveling from city to city during the pandemic and meeting so many like-minded women along the way. For us, it’s “fuel” for the heart and soul. If we’re able to touch a woman’s heart, we receive back tenfold.
