Mama Mio was founded by three beauty experts: Sian Sutherland, Tanya Kazeminy Mackay and Kathy Miller. As mothers their mission is to provide Supermamas with the most effective skincare products throughout the journey of motherhood. In this interview Mama Mio’s founders talk about how it all began, what makes Mama Mio special, and give us a list of famous celebrity moms who are Mama Mio fans.

How was the concept for Mama Mio born?
Because we (Mama Mio’s founders Sian Sutherland, Tanya Kazeminy Mackay and Kathy Miller) work in the beauty industry, we have access to the very best chemists, aromatherapists and manufacturers. So when Sian first fell pregnant we did some serious research into how to keep our tummies free from stretch marks. In talking to all our friends and business associates we concluded that the answer to protecting overstretched skin is in the topical application of Omega 3, 6 and 9. We then created our Tummy Rub Oil. It smelled glorious and it felt amazing and we all rub rub rubbed it in throughout our seven pregnancies. All of the other Mama Mio products followed as we encountered each stage in pregnancy and motherhood. We gave it to all of our friends, and then friends of friends eventually after 12 years of trial we decided that the time had come to create Mama Mio.

What is Mama Mio’s main philosophy?
Our Mama Mio mission is to use our experience as mothers (and beauty experts) to provide Supermamas with the most effective skincare products to address all their concerns, throughout the journey of motherhood. Our total focus at Mama MIo is helping mothers feel good in their skin….. whether their baby is in their tummy or in college.
Mama Mio is dedicated to the celebration of Supermamas. Everyone has one, knows one or is one. At any age and at any stage, she is a self-propelled dynamo that is tirelessly everything to everyone. So Supermamas, we know you are busy, but take a little moment for a pat on the back. Lord knows you deserve it!

How is Mama Mio different than other maternity skincare products on the market?
The Mama Mio is the only skincare range focused entirely on the needs of all supermamas.. We are all about improving and maintaining the tone and elasticity of the skin – because elastic skin is fantastic skin. We use facial skincare technology and the finest quality ingredients in every product. Our super-moisturising products are effective because of the high levels of Omega 3, 6, and 9 (nature’s superheroes at improving skin’s strength and elasticity). Our repair and restoration products are packed with the very best ingredients science and nature have to offer at the highest levels recommended, so they really work. Our gorgeous Gravida fragrance is another key element that sets the Mama Mio range apart. It’s a blend of 10 natural essential oils, carefully created to appeal to the most sensitive of noses. It imparts emotional and physical benefits and makes you smell as beautiful as you feel. It’s addictive and a special part of using the range. We feel the more you enjoy using our products, the more you’ll use them and the better they’ll work (sneaky we product developers!). Finally, we care just as much about what we put in our skincare as what we don’t. We maintain a strict NO NASTIES policy which means every Mama Mio product is Paraben Free, . Petrolatum Free, Sodium Laureth and Sodium Laurel Sulphate Free, Colourant Free and Synthetic Fragrance Free.

Which pregnancy and post-pregency skin issues does Mama Mio address?
Mama Mio is primarily concerned with the strength and elasticity of skin. Each of our products focus on maintaining and improving the strength and elasticity and then an extra focus is added to address a multitude of skin issues women face throughout the entire journey of motherhood including: the southern migration of the bust area, crepey skin from pregnancy and weight loss, cellulite, preventing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks, dry, parched, sensitive skin, itchy belly syndrome, fading surgery scars, the need for luxury, pampering and de-stressing.

What are some of the key ingredients we can find your products?
We use facial skincare technology and the finest quality ingredients in every product. The building block of each of our products is a high levels of Omega 3, 6, and 9 (nature’s superheroes at improving skin’s strength and elasticity). We then add in ingredients specific to the issue the product is addressing. Antioxidants like CoQ10 play a big part in fighting the war against gravity – our Boob Tube is loaded with it to help you aim north, not south. Our repair and restoration products are packed with the very best ingredients science and nature have to offer at the highest levels recommended, so they really work. We use proven ingredients like hyaluronic acid to plump crepey skin on the tummy, Laminaria Digitata (brown algae) with a proven firming action to zap cellulite and Regestril, clinically proven to reduce the visibility and texture of stretchmarks. Our gorgeous Gravida fragrance is another key element of the range. It’s a blend of 10 natural essential oils, carefully created to appeal to the most sensitive of noses. It imparts emotional and physical benefits and makes you smell as beautiful as you feel.

What makes Mama Mio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter so popular?
Mama Mio Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter is so popular because IT WORKS. It is fit for purpose and contains Omegas 3, 6 and 9, our superheroes to help skin’s strength and elasticity. With the added benefit of super-moisturising Shea Butter, our Butter really is the best. Also, see notes on addictive Gravida fragrance above.
The supermama network is a very strong one and friends tell friends and so on. The product has been featured on so many blogs written by and for moms, it has been embraced and endorsed in an organic, grassroots way by the community. Our celeb fan base for Tummy Rub Butter includes Natalia Vodianova, Mariska Hargitay, Rachel Weisz, Milla Jovovich and Kirsten Dunst (not pregnant, still loving us!).

What is included in the Mama Mio Mama’s Touch Maternity Spa Treatment? Can we call this spa treatments for supermamas?
Keeping the human race going is a stressful business, both physically and psychologically… it is the best reason you can give for needing to occasionally check out of reality and into a spa. For this very reason, we created Mama’s Touch, a special programme of skin-salvation and indulgent spa treatments. Mama’s Touch treatments are all designed to take you through all stages of pregnancy and, even more importantly, help you get your body back.

Mama’s Touch treatments are enjoyed at a spa bunny’s dream of prestigious locations including The Ritz-Carlton Spas, Spa Terra-Noble House resorts, Cowshed Spas worldwide, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Claridges, The Berkeley and Browns in London.
Please see the attached treatment menu.

How come your products smell so delicious yet don’t offend a very sensitive pregnant nose?
Our fragrance is a blend of 10 natural essential oils, very carefully created to appeal to the most sensitive of noses. It layers you with a subtle veil of fresh citrus notes with a gentle heart of white flowers. It has been tried and tested on countless supermamas and much to our delight, appeals to all who have experienced it.

  5. I began using the Dr Max Powers “Stretch Mark Treatment” every single day about two months ago and it works WONDERS. First you can use it for stretch marks and you can use it for scars and to moisturize your face and neck, ladies!

    You must follow the instructions even though they are pretty simple. If I am using this for acne scars, skin discolorations (sun exposure), uneven skin tone I apply either over makeup (may not be recommended as this could remove your makeup)and on a freshly washed face.

    I use the lengths of my fingers not fingertips since they produce the oils that could cause you breakouts from YES touching your face. I rub into the affected area or scar (even works on cystic acne scars) atleast two to three times a day when I am able to. But if not I do this at night before going to bed. Be patient and wait one to two weeks before you notice a big difference as the scar gets lighter your face appears to be glowing and skin discolorations slowly fade.

    Keep on it atleast everyday. I thought it was only for men who workout – based on the way the product looks, but I am glad I bought this and one bottle lasted me over two months and I used it everyday! Give this product a try, be patient, follow the directions and you will not be disappointed.

  22. There are so many ways to reduce stretch marks, and take note, I said; reduce. Yes, stretch marks can never be eliminated from our skin. No matter how great or expensive your solution may be you just have to accept the fact that it will always be there no matter what. If one day you see those stretch marks are already on your skin, you now ask yourself on how you possibly got those. When you are physically active with sports, your skin is actually stretched more than the usual, making stretch marks very visible on your skin. Also, one major factor for this is pregnancy.`
