Anna Douglas

Yoga teacher & Co-Founder, Renew + Restore

As a Seattle native, I have always been connected to wellness and the outdoors. Samudra Skin & Sea captures the idea of back-to-basics. I truly believe in their mission and their products, especially their goal of keeping the water I love clean and free of toxic chemicals. I co-own an international yoga and surf retreat company called Renew + Restore and it has always been crucial to work with people who reflect the fundamental principles I stand for: honest ingredients and pure intentions. I feel proud to represent such a cool and inspiring community.

My favorite Samudra Skin & Sea product is the Detoxifying Face Mask. I spend many hours in heated studios and in direct sun teaching on the water, so the mask is essential to restore and revitalize! My skin literally drinks it!

Erika Bergman

Submarine pilot & Co-Founder, theGEECs.com

I’m an adventurer at heart. My lifestyle consists of traveling around the world as a submarine pilot and National Geographic explorer. My goal is to empower girls to achieve non traditional career paths and follow their dreams. I introduce youth to welding and underwater robots to create the next generation of female underwater robot pilots. Samudra Skin & Sea represents so much of what I believe in: a lifestyle inspired by oceans and one that empowers girls and women to reach their goals.

My favorite Samudra Skin & Sea product is the Lather-Rich Soap Bar since I’m always on the go! It’s the only product I need since it’s for hair and body, plus it’s biodegradable which means it’s good for people and the planet.

Marcela Avila Lopez

Founder, Lunamar for the Planet

I’ve always been inspired by people and cultures. After years of living around the globe with the ocean as my office, I created  Lunamar for the Planet. Lunamar is a brand of handmade swimwear and bracelets that supports social programs around the world. In my free time I love scuba diving, free diving and surfing. Samudra Skin & Sea shares my passion for all things ocean, as well as healthy, holistic living with dedication to ethically made goods- I could not be more excited to represent the Samudra brand.

My favorite Samudra Skin & Sea product is the Hydrating Body Butter. I love that I only need the smallest amount to keep my body refreshed and glowing.


Josie Iselin

Seaweed artist, author & Founder, Loving Blind Productions

I’ve been drawn to the ocean for as long as I can remember, where the seaweeds of our California coast blossomed into a lifelong passion. As a designer and author, I focus on using a combination of art and science to explore the water’s edge as a place of self-discovery and portal to our blue planet. Samudra Skin & Sea’s clear concern for the wild and unfettered health of the spectacular and essential marine organisms in our ocean is an inspiration to me. I am delighted to represent this dynamic venture and help it grow as an example of how to do business right.

My favorite Samudra Skin & Sea product is the Restorative Face Cream. As one watching wrinkles evolve, I have tried many face creams and this one truly is above and beyond.
