People are waking up to how toxic we’ve made our environment, and have started taking more care in eating healthfully – choosing to look for organic, fresh and well-sourced food. When people start to care about what they put in their bodies, they inevitably begin to care about what they’re putting on their bodies, too.
CORPUS was founded in 2018 with this exact sentiment in mind by J. P. Mastey, a skincare expert with over 20 years of experience. “My motivation was personal, and began in 2015 when we were expecting our first child. In the process of preparing our home for our new baby, I went from someone that merely glanced at ingredient panels to someone who obsessed over them, and about the idea of clean and safe ingredients. But all the ‘natural’ products I found were either not truly natural or felt like I was forced to make a sacrifice on aesthetics, scent, texture, or performance. I was prepared to do it better.”
CORPUS is made for people who don’t want to sacrifice quality for the sake of ‘going natural.’ Our proprietary vegan, plant-based formulations are designed to be both purposeful, and elicit happiness. The result is body care that goes above and beyond what you may have come to expect.
Frank Lloyd Wright once said, “form and function are one.” The best designs elevate ordinary objects into extraordinary experiences. The satisfying precision, the weight, the perfect balance… often it’s the small details and nuances that remind you of a well-made product.
At CORPUS, we believe that products should be clean and sustainable, but also that the experience of using a product is equally important – especially one you use every day. We don’t think they are mutually exclusive. We strongly believe that luxury comes from the thoughtful selection of products that are both purposeful and elicit happiness — and that each person has an evolving, intimate definition of luxury, that cannot be culturally prescribed or achieved.
To create something exceptional, it has to be the sum of all parts. It’s not enough to design a product that simply works. The product must feel good; the weight, the proportions, and the texture all must come together. Our goal was and is to be pleasing to all senses.
At CORPUS, we are continuously improving, striving to make our products as clean – and green – as we possibly can. We love our planet and our communities and strive to leave things a little better than we found them.
We know we don’t have to live in a world where the products we love are detrimental to the environment or to ourselves. We constantly strive to create a balance between product and planet, providing you with a clean, sustainable experience without sacrificing quality and performance.
We set high standards for our small company to defy the norm and reduce our footprint in terms of our packaging design, in our choice of manufacturers throughout our supply chain, and in production. We make choices not always visible to consumers, and we strive to apply this mindset to all parts of our business.

OUR NATURAL FRAGRANCES
Unlike many natural fragrances found on the market today, which are typically one or two common essential oils, our natural fragrances are complex, elevated, and sophisticated. They are entirely natural, classically built perfumes – formulated without the use of any synthetic ingredients.
Natural perfumery could be compared to the modern vegan chef who transforms the constraints on ingredients into convincing and satisfying substitutes. Only with a great amount of research development creativity and experience can you compete with the expectations set by conventional chemistry.
Our natural fragrances are built with the traditional fragrance architecture of a base, middle and top note. Typical perfume relies heavily on synthetic fragrances to create these three scent levels. At CORPUS, we went above and beyond to develop this classic perfume architecture by only using natural fragrances. Each scent took well over a year of formulating and modifying hundreds of iterations to achieve, a process we believe was more than worth it.
