Skylar founder Cat Chen has been inspired by fragrance since childhood. A first-generation American, her parents immigrated from Taiwan when she was 11, settling in the Los Angeles area, where dreaming big is a way of life. Watching her parents pursue the American dream, she learned that anything is possible with perseverance.

A former tech and beauty industry executive, Cat founded Skylar in 2017 after her everyday fragrance caused her infant daughter to experience allergic reactions. Though it was thought to be impossible, Cat found a way to make fresh, inspiring scents that are cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, and safe for sensitive skin.

Since 2017, the Skylar brand and team continue to grow and evolve to reflect our values of authenticity, diversity, and empowerment. An all-female board, ongoing philanthropic partnerships, and monthly diversity and inclusion seminars are an important foundation to the Skylar story as we continue to strive towards making an impact that goes beyond creating fragrances.





At first, we were told it wasn’t possible to create hypoallergenic fragrances that smelled amazing.

Nevertheless, we persisted.

We dreamed of a world where personal scents could be safe and clean, artfully inspiring and lasting, not allergy-causing.

Applying the highest standards of quality in clean beauty, we create scents that are hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin, vegan, and cruelty-free.

We are always evolving, learning new ways to do better and offer carefully crafted scents that are as fresh and good as they smell.
