Getting to know us


Being a full time stay at home and homeschooler, Paola Altine is also obsessed with medical journals, technological advances, herbal alternatives and the latest beauty and health innovations -- due to her background in pharmacy-biochemistry and herbalism. Her vision for Pao and Jo is to combine the best of science and nature at an affordable price. With this brand, she wants to prove that you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. 

From overseeing product development to marketing to creative direction, Pao is the driving force behind the brand. She has spent countless hours making sure formulations live up to her standards.

Pao & Jo offers products that are natural, effective, smart, and unfussy - ones that solve real problems without the fluff. We are very intentional by introducing one product at a time. We want to make sure we get our formulations right and being thoughtful in the products we put on the market.
