One day we received an email from a woman who had created a cosmetics brand she would like to introduce. We receive many emails like this and we always appreciate them. But there was something special about this one. It was written by Mercedes, a pharmacist who had been developing her own formulas since 2018.
The brand was called Quinque. It was born with only three products, all three designed for urban skins. Mercedes has lived in different cities with different weather conditions and her skin has always suffered. Quinque is not about rejuvenating cosmetics, but about time passing gracefully through our skin.
Quinque is "formulated with love and CBD". CBD stands for cannabidiol, a molecule extracted from the Cannabis Sativa plant. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties for the skin.
The email ended saying that the brand was about to launch and she wanted to do it with Laconicum. "Can’t think of a better runway than chez Laconicum” Mercedes said.
We tried the products, we really liked them. We tried them again, we still liked them. We wrote back saying: "Let’s do it". Quinque was born the same week it began to be sold in Laconicum. And this is nice.
