Ursula Snyder, Founder/Director DU NORD SKIN CARE

I have worked in the field of health and wellness all my professional life as a medical editor & writer, a yoga & physical fitness instructor and health & wellness counsellor. My educational background is in science: BSc physics (Dalhousie University, NS, Canada) and PhD molecular biology of photosynthesis and DNA/protein interactions (Brown University, Providence, RI).

DU NORD SKIN CARE is inspired by my deep attachment to the landscape and flora on a glorious, rugged bit of Atlantic coast where I live and work, years of laboratory experience and many years of working with people helping them to improve their physical and emotional health and sense of wellbeing.

DU NORD SKIN CARE is a synthesis of influences and my lifelong interests in nature, science and art, and the creative process. I wanted to make something beautiful and useful that contributed to my exploration around what it means to feel good in one's skin.
