MEET OUR TEAM
Gretta van riel - Founder
“In May 2012, I started SkinnyMe Tea from my family home in Melbourne, Australia. Three years and 300,000 customers later, my strongest feeling remains the same – Proud. Proud of our company vision and the positive change we have made to so many people’s lives, but even more so, proud of our incredible customers who have supported us every step of the way. I’m so thankful to have been able to create a product, which I’m truly passionate about. Combining something I love – drinking tea – with something I needed – a detox. The journey has been amazing. To watch our little business grow into a global brand and household name has just been completely overwhelming. It’s still the most amazing feeling to see our customer’s results, hear their feedback and know you had a part to play in all of that. Our customers constantly inspire us. Although our product has changed and evolved for the better, the vision from the start is still the same – to create healthy products that actually work and contribute to a broader healthy lifestyle change. At SMT, we’re constantly working on new ways to help our customers achieve their health goals. Our new SMT Detox Program is a direct result of your feedback. Designed by us, for you. I look forward to watching you all in the next stage of your journey. So be sure to follow me on Instagram (@grettarose) and tag me in your photos as I love seeing your progress. After all, the best project you will ever work on is you.”

Izabella Green Global - Nutritionist // Naturopath
Day Spa at Home is brought to you by Izabella Green Global, whose director is a certified Nutritionist, Naturopath and youthful longevity enthusiast. She has a Masters Degree in Gerontology (the study of Ageing) and is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society and the Australian Association of Gerontologists. She has been working on solutions to help people just like you hit the pause button on their busy lives and steal away a bit of time for themselves. Izabella Green Global has put together the Day Spa at Home team of health and beauty therapists, fitness professional, life coaches and meditation experts to give you expert advice for all your DIY natural and organic beauty product and beauty information. We understand that people naturally relax and unwind when they visit high-end day spas all over the world. Unfortunately, splurging on pampering at the spa as often as we’d like is often out of the question. So it’s our mission to reverse engineer those same kind of top-quality services so that anyone (and we mean ANYONE) can pamper themselves using all natural and organic ingredients all in the comfort of their own home. We want to spread the message that you deserve to pamper yourself. When you practice self-love you have more of yourself to give to others. In fact, when you think about it this way, the practice of self-love is a really a selfless act. There’s nothing more important than making sure that you are just as happy and just as healthy as can be, especially in the stressful and pressure-packed modern world we all live in today.
