About the Founder/Creator
Michelle Moran is an established entrepreneur with over 20 years of apparel industry experience and a recognized leader promoting social causes through fashion.
In 2007, Michelle started Skineez®, her newest line of compression fabrics. Michelle had learned about cosmetic textiles and recognized their potential in the United States. Her idea for Skineez® came from her experience while wearing compression garments recommended by her doctor after surgery. Experiencing how uncomfortable and drying the garments were, Michelle knew that the industry would benefit from creating wearable skincare.
Skineez® is the only FDA-cleared brand of compression garments. Working with Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Jacofsky of the Core Institute, Michelle proved the skin's elasticity would increase 19% while wearing Skineez®. Only Skineez® compression items are clinically proven to repair the skin.
Skineez® has changed the world of compression wear through its innovative line. Skineez® provides all of the benefits of true medical-grade, graduated compression while protecting the skin's surface. Skineez® is wearable skincare.
Michelle is a recognized leader promoting social causes. In 2005, Michelle launched Clothes For A Cause and The Pink Ribbon Collection for active women. Portions of every sale were donated to underinsured women. In 2006, Michelle was asked to partner with First Lady Barbara Bush's "Red Dress" nationwide campaign, defining the new symbol of wellness and early detection for Heart Disease at Saks Fifth Avenue and Marshall Fields. Portions of every sale were donated to provide cholesterol tests for women in need. Michelle also donates a portion of the sales to St. Jude’s Hospital and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
