When a woman’s drive is powerful enough to pursue her creative passions, we here at Sporteluxe take note. When Supernal founder Melissa Medvedich went back to school, she was in the midst of her professional career as a Creative Director in New York City. That being said, when she had decided it was time to change course and follow her ultimate dream, skincare, she was well aware of the power of plants. Melissa enrolled herself at the renowned New York Institute of Aromatic Studies and became totally immersed. Understanding the therapeutic actions of the ingredients and how they interact with skin, she soon received her aromatherapy certification. Forever the scholar, she then returned to school to continue her studies in botanical beauty formulations.
