NO FACELESS CORPORATION: the origins of tronque
TRONQUE is trunk [noun] – the core of your body.
Nurture and care for your Tronque
Tronque was born through founder Tanne’s struggle with her reproductive health. While recovering from her second endometriosis surgery in 2019, she learnt about endocrine disruptors in our skincare and how they can mimic hormones. She investigated her daily skincare regime and was shocked to discover that these products from well-known global brands contained harmful ingredients proven to disrupt human hormonal systems. It led her to ask, is self-care harming our health?
“I WAS SO CAREFUL ABOUT THE FOOD I PUT IN MY BODY, I NEEDED TO HAVE THE SAME CARE ABOUT WHAT I PUT ON IT."
Tanne ditched her harmful skincare and makeup – to search for an alternative. But a refusal to compromise on efficacy and safety led Tanne to instead develop her own skincare range. One that focuses on treating skin from the neck down, with the same obsession normally reserved for the face. Using only clean, high-performance formulations based on active, safe ingredients.
FACE-WORTHY SKINCARE FOR EVERY BODY
Tronque is made with an ethos of full ingredient transparency, and maximum safety and efficacy. It’s free from endocrine or internal health disruptors and other toxins, designed for the glorious spectrum of skin types, genders and ethnicities.
Proudly standing against neck-down neglect, Tronque lets you treat your body as beautifully as your face – and know that you’re doing it good, every day. The skin of the body is 85% of your largest organ. This large surface area can absorb more harmful ingredients than your face, which is why Tronque was created as your safe haven.
