Our Story

Founded in 2020, HIBYLENA (Hai-bai-lee-na) was born out of the necessity to support my family in healthy & toxin-free living. As a trained chemist, I’d been questioning the safety of many self-care products for a while. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided to create a line of clean skin and hair care products that are prepared with high quality natural ingredients.

Following in my dad’s footsteps, I became a chemist and have worked in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and environmental industries, but realized that formulating is where my passion lies. My dad had a life-long career as a natural product formulator and has been my teacher and mentor for many years. Between us, we have over 35 years of industry experience, and a strong belief that choosing clean, natural products should be a top priority for everyone.

One of my first creations was our hair care products. My husband had been using medicated products to prevent hair loss for years. Not only was it expensive and full of toxins, but it also wasn’t working. Long story short, I developed a set of hair care products, now called {SCALP THERAPY}, and the results were immediate. My mother-in-law, who was also going through the same issue, experienced a dramatic change within a week of using it.

Since then, I’ve spent many hours researching various ingredients, and testing formulations to create other hair and skin care products. Most recently, I’ve created water-activated skin care products that contain little or no water. This allowed us to include more active ingredients in a sustainable way that is good for both you and the environment.

What I’ve learned is that formulating a product has an element of art and science, and my experience as a chemist has definitely prepared me for this. I love what I do, and I’m constantly learning and improving so that I can provide you with the best products possible.

HIBYLENA is based out of Cochrane, AB; we formulate, manufacture and package all our products in-house. We believe in providing value and simplicity, and all our products are packaged in eco-friendly ways.

We’ve seen the results…but don’t take our word for it; try out the products, and see the difference they make, for yourself!
