Hi! I’m Susie Lee the Founder and Creator of ECHO VIE. I’ve been a Professional Makeup Artist for over 20 years, and started my Chicago-based skincare company in 2012; we create skincare focused on effective plant-based ingredients.
I am a four-time cancer survivor; diagnosed once with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and three times with breast cancer. When I was six months pregnant with my son, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. At the time, I was struggling to find products that fulfilled my needs for my stretching skin. I wanted natural, effective, and pretty packaging to display on my nightstand. I couldn't find what I needed, so I began mixing and creating my own formulations. When I went through months of chemotherapy, it really began wreaking havoc on my skin, and my oils really helped to save my skin.
My health history, paired with becoming a mother, inspired the creation of the company. I’ve learned so much about living consciously and being deliberate about what I put in my body as fuel and food, along with the products I put on my skin. ECHO VIE is an extension of what I’ve learned, created into products to share with others.
