Stress Less, Breathe More
We’re a small and gloriously purpose-led team redefining the way the world and consumers see wellness.
ATEM is a brand that celebrates all things natural, essential, and of premium quality.
Spelled backwords it also reads meta: about the thing itself.
Stress less, breathe more is our motto in life, and we believe part of that comes from introducing clinically proven and natural products that will give you just that.
We are committed to a journey of wellness, because living well is really the only way to live– and we hope you’re here for that same reason too.
I was dealt some challenging cards in my youth: I struggled with a neurological disorder that had me blacking out every day for a time, a couple traumatic experiences with sexual assault, and a long period of depression.
My healing journey and recovery has been a long one, but this dogged pursuit for a better and good life than the one I was being shown- the one I discovered I deserved and was worthy of- has brought me to where I am today: in a place of incredible stability and resilience, and living intelligently, with purpose, in value, and with joy.
At present, I look to a quote by Thomas Merton, a 20th century Trappist monk, poet, and social activist, which captures our ATEM mission here:
“They knew they were helpless to do any good for others as long as they floundered about in the wreckage. But once they got a foothold on solid ground, things were different. Then they had not only the power but even the obligation to pull the whole world to safety after them.”
That’s our mission here, to urge and help people onto their walks to wellness and to a better life, and we’re doing this through personal care innovation, brand, education, and advocacy.
ATEM as a company encapsulates a philosophy I hope to share onto the world– to be intelligent and intentional in the living and to relentlessly seek out good and eliminate the bad for yourself.
Since 2018, this is what we’ve been working on:
ATEM Wellness Lab is our personal care innovation and OEM arm, home to where we develop the the world’s most innovative personal care formulations and push the envelope on our industry’s standards for what clean and sustainable mean so we can improve the wellbeing of our consumers and our communities of tomorrow for our partners around the globe and for our very own ATEM skincare.
ATEM Life is our wellness blog, a safe space and educational resource bringing advocates, industry leaders, academics, and consumers together in a conversation around mental health and wellness, reflecting a diversity of thoughts and minds, data-backed opinion and facts, and timeless wisdom and insight.
And there is more to come.
I hope you’ll stay along for the journey and see us do good things, together.
