You may not know Adele Uddo by name, but you’ve certainly seen her work. A longtime “parts” model — specializing in hands, lips, and feet, for example — Adele has doubled for a variety of A-List celebrities, including Katy Perry, Behati Prinsloo and Penélope Cruz.
This unique career led Adele to develop a personal skincare line so she’d always be healthy and photo-ready. As friends and family began to urge her to reveal her secrets, Adele eventually connected with a “top formulator” in Los Angeles to make Essentiel by Adele available to a wider range of people.
So, what is it that makes this minimalist line so special? We connected with the founder and entrepreneur to find out for ourselves.
E!: When did you launch Essentiel by Adele?
E!: What inspired you to create this line?
I’ve been “parts modeling” for many many years, primarily hands, but lips, legs, feet, and I realized early on that I needed to keep my skin super healthy. There’s a lot of high-definition close-up photography [in that line of work]! I experimented with different moisturizers on the market, and I began seeing this trend of higher prices but lower-quality ingredients. So I took matters into my own hands and began working with natural organic products that I was familiar with from the farm on which I grew up.
E! Do you have any favorite aspects about your products?
The multi-use aspect. Essentiel offers good skin nutrition that feeds every part of your face, hands, and body, and it’s good for the planet! Each ingredient was hand-selected with a specific purpose in mind: Hyaluronic acid plumps the skin; coffee berry is a natural antioxidant; raspberry tightens the skin; and MSM is a sulfur compound that helps the skin produce collagen, for a few examples. There are no artificial fragrances, either; only essential oils.
E! Who would you recommend Moisture to?
Everyone! [Ed. note: More on that below!]
E!: Is there anything shoppers may not know about you or your products that you’d like to share?
I’ve always joked that I always wanted to contribute more to society than nice nail beds, so I feel extremely grateful to have created this product and for it to have been received as it has.
