FOUNDERS' STORY

made for skincare enthusiasts by skincare enthusiasts

When Jonathan and David started dating, they instantly connected over their love for skincare and the cosmetics industry. They were both getting into "clean" skincare but yearned for fun, bold, packaging and mindful, potent formulas. As young twenty-somethings struggling to pay bills and rent on time in Los Angeles, they felt duped when they learned the expensive “clean” skincare they’d been buying was loaded with artificial fillers that can irritate sensitive skin and decrease the potency of products.

The couple turned their frustrations into action and created Tecco, a "clean", fun skincare brand that embraces biotechnology and that gives people everything their skin needs and nothing it doesn't — luxury ingredients without the hefty price tag.

Jonathan - Founder/CEO

Known as a sales and education guru in the cosmetics world, Jonathan was a Regional Account Executive for IGK Hair and has worked for brands like Beauty Blender, Smith & Cult, Clinique, and Belif. He was raised to be a hustler, thanks to his single mom who instilled strong Puerto Rican values and hope for the American dream.

Jonathan's passion for cosmetics began in film school when he fell in love with prosthetics and special effects makeup. While working as a freelance makeup artist for WWE, he realized the importance of a good skincare routine before applying makeup.
