The Seated Queen is created by sisters Josephine + 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 + gentle, as well as effective.
Libby is an journalist + consultant, who worked for more than a decade as a consultant for global retail + 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 + unpredictable. For us the word ‘queen’ exists beyond the confines of gender, instead it represent a state of mind + a way of doing.
