our Story

meet KAREN


For Karen Ballou, clean and effective skincare isn’t just a notion, it’s a necessity. Several years ago, Karen successfully battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma. As she recovered from the ravages of chemo, she yearned for a natural, nourishing, and effective skincare solution. It was then that the idea for Immunocologie was born. 

Karen has more than 30 years of experience as a beauty executive. She is also an esthetician and educator, an ingredient and formulation expert, a nutrition and skincare guru, and, following her diagnosis and recovery, an ardent believer in the importance of building a healthy immune system. Her story of creating a wellness brand truly started with her own wellness journey.

Immunocologie is the culmination of Karen’s quest to create an incomparable clean line that nourishes skin from the outside in. The plant- and mineral-based products are meticulously crafted from ethically sourced, sustainable ingredients from around the globe. They are free of artificial ingredients, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, mineral oil, formaldehyde, fragrance, and color. 

With Immunocologie, all skin types are safely and effectively nourished and balanced, resulting in healthy, bright, radiant skin. Immunocologie is a lifestyle brand for all humanity that empowers the skin’s barrier to function at its healthiest.

"I want to start a dialogue that encourages people to ask questions about their skin, its health and how it relates to their lifestyle as a whole."
