Artisan Luxury Skincare: Inlight

Through 30 years of meticulous research, Inlight products have been created to be the perfect complement to natural and alternative therapies. Lovingly hand crafted & 100% organic, Inlight is formulated by medical doctor, homeopath and herbalist Dr Mariano Spiezia who gives us an insight into his world...

What do you wish you’d known when you started?

Nothing more than I knew at that time. Life is an adventure and I like to discover it step by step by being surprised by what happens. By observing life’s phenomena I realised that there is an innate intelligence in everything and it is fascinating to let it express itself without too much control. It knows what to do and how to do it.

What drew you to the beauty industry?

My belief that beauty shines from health. When in Italy I was heavily involved in the flourishing of the organic movement and had no doubt that this would be the right path for a better and healthier future so my commitment started then. As a doctor and medical herbalist I understand both physiology and the genius of Nature and for years I have experienced their interconnection. My ingenuity flourished with some ointments I made for some patients with skin complaints when I started my British journey with my family living at Higher Boden - an organic farm in Cornwall. Those early day results sparked the idea of developing a pure, organic, effective skin care line. The aim was to bring health back into the beauty industry proving that healthy skin can only be beautiful. We were the first UK Company certified 100% organic across the whole range by the Soil Association: a great joy and achievement.

What's your career mantra?

Love for Nature, compassion for people. Linking tradition with science.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

The fact that my vision of life and business has been recognised, showing a new understanding and consciousness in the link between health and beauty.

If you would treat yourself to one thing this month it would be?

Swimming and snorkelling in the Mediterranean watching the beauty of the wild life in the magical underwater silence.

What is your favourite time of the day?

I love two moments of the day: very early morning with its irresistible vibrant energy that pushes me into action; late in the evening when silence envelops everything and I can meditate or read a good book.

Which cause would you fight for?

Injustice, any type of abuse on vulnerable people, preservation of the environment.

What makes someone stand out?

When someone risks all their certainties to challenge life and explore new understandings.
