When Melinda and Delfondo met at 19 they were unaware that at the age of 15 they both lived on 103rd st in the Roseland neighborhood of Chicago. They knew that faith placed them at the same place harmoniously and that they had many things in common. So while thinking of a name for the company, they wanted it to be sentimental and relevant to a collection of plant based products and in 2015, 103 Collection was launched.

Melinda and Delfondo had the desire to live a healthier lifestyle and manage sensitive skin issues. The first step was to research ingredients that are safe for sensitive skin. Then we started mixing products in our kitchen and soon noticed that through the use of these plant based ingredients, we were able to develop products that are perfect for people that suffer from allergic reactions and skin disorders.
WHY PLANT BASED
Health benefits include increased energy, younger looking skin and eternal youth and plant-based diets are rich in protein, iron, calcium and other essential vitamins and minerals. The plant-based sources of these nutrients tend to be low in saturated fat, high in fibre and packed with antioxidants, helping mitigate some of the modern world's biggest health issues like obesity, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Our products are high in Vitamin A, B, C, D, E and all the essential ingredients needed to revitalize your skin and rejuvenate your skin cells. We believe in using ingredients that are not tested on animals.
