Our enVy Pillow Story

KIM RENTON R.N. B.A.

Co Inventor
After leaving hospital based practice, Kim had a successful career with Allergan Canada as a Botox Medical Consultant. From there she went on to open KAPPS, her own Training Company teaching physicians across North America the Art and Science of Botox™ and Facial Fillers (Perlane™ Restylane™).

In her experience treating thousands of clients, Kim found that not all wrinkles were in fact “wrinkles”. She was aware of what cosmetic dermatologists have long known… that side and stomach sleepers develop deep permanent sleep lines on their faces from “squishing” them into their pillows every night. Most often, the deepest, most resistant lines were caused by habitual sleeping positions!

KATHY YOUNG KEEFE R.N.

Co Inventor
Through years of experience in the Intensive Care, Cranio-Facial, Plastic Surgery and Burns units at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Kathy has extensive knowledge in the anatomy and physiology of healthy and damaged tissue. Since having neck and back spinal surgery as a teenager Kathy has spent many years (and a lot of money) in search of the perfect pillow.

In the development of enVy pillow she insisted that the perfect pillow should also provide the cervical spinal support necessary to ease or prevent chronic neck and back pain. A comfortable pillow with optimal neck support and chiropractic alignment. Together their combined interests, experiences and expertise gave them the tools and knowledge to create the most comfortable anti sleep wrinkle therapeutic pillow on the market.

We have something to say…

We are a company co-founded by two reluctantly aging nurses with years of experience in the Anti Aging battlefield. Although we were inspired by the findings of Dr. Samuel E. Stegman whose research first identified “sleep wrinkles” and the long term effects caused by the chronic contact with a pillow on your face through the night. … we saw the evidence in our mirrors every morning. We originally designed enVy® as the first ergonomic post-operative pillow for Plastic Surgeons to offer their clients after face lifts and other facial surgeries (sleep wrinkle reduction was icing on the cake).

Before long the appeal of enVy® expanded beyond a need to keep face-lift clients off their delicate tissue while sleeping. Clients were buying enVy® for their beauty but loving it for how they felt in the morning after a great night’s sleep and without neck pain, headaches, numbness or tingling arms, jaw pain etc. enVy® ‘s ability to keep the sleeper off their faces AND in optimal spinal alignment is now  recognized and recommended by Dermatologist, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Dentists and Sleep Specialists.

Sleep well, Kathy and Kim
