The Seated Queen is created by sisters Josephine and Libby Banks, both based in rural Wiltshire, UK. Josephine is a trained facial massage therapist. As someone who struggles with eczema + contact dermatitis, she knows how important it is to create products that are soothing and gentle, as well as effective.
Libby is a journalist + consultant, who worked for more than a decade as a consultant for global retail and beauty brands.
The Seated Queen – officially known as Cassiopeia – is a star constellation in the northern sky. Cassiopeia was a vain queen in Greek mythology who boasted of her unrivalled beauty. We love the idea of someone who is strong, but also imperfect and unpredictable. For us the word ‘queen’ exists beyond the confines of gender, instead it represent a state of mind and a way of doing.
