About Kim Wellen
Kim Wellen is the Founder and Owner of Mantra Mask, a line of CBD sheet masks and skincare products. Mantra Mask is dedicated to making paraben and phthalate-free beauty products with the highest quality all-natural, cruelty-free, and vegan ingredients and the anti-inflammatory power of CBD.
Mantra Mask was born from Wellen’s belief that she could be part of a change in the beauty industry and develop natural, high-quality skincare available at an affordable price to everyone. Her background in skincare research and development over the last thirteen years has been integral to her innovation. In 2016, when she could not find a sheet mask made in the United States from all-natural ingredients, she partnered with Dr. Hal Simeroth to develop her own line, and Mantra Mask was born. Together they researched and sourced all the natural ingredients to create the first two sheet masks. In 2018, Wellen was at the forefront of understanding the benefit of CBD for skincare and began incorporating CBD into all of her products. She was a visionary in understanding the effect that the anti-inflammatory power of CBD had on the skin. The Mantra Mask line has expanded to seven sheet masks to address just about every skincare need and also includes eye gels, cleanser, and serum. The name Mantra Mask came from Wellen’s guiding belief that “beauty comes from the inside out,” and taking the time to sheet mask while focusing on a positive mantra (that comes with each product) is the ultimate form of self-care.
A life-long skincare enthusiast, Wellen worked for Stemology, a luxury high-end skincare company, for over a decade. Before that, she worked for Abbott Labs as a pharmaceutical rep for 12 years. Wellen received her bachelor’s degree from California State Polytechnic University-San Luis Obispo. She lives in Southern California, and when she is not in the lab discovering her next product, she enjoys the beach, hiking, and biking with her husband and two kids.
