"The next generation of face oils" - Vogue


Matthew Mileo


I’ve always been a wellness enthusiast, encompassing an all-around healthy lifestyle. I’m also very close to my family, and every Christmas and birthday, I would gift them all luxury beauty products, cremes, lotions and fragrances. One of these recipients was my godmother, and she is my favorite person in the world.

When she got cancer, it was heartbreaking to watch her go through rounds of chemotherapy. I also noticed that her once flawless skin now appeared dull, sallow and lifeless. I knew that in order for her to feel good, she needed to look good, so I committed my life to creating a skincare formula strong enough to battle the effects of cancer and leave skin revitalized, restored and vibrant. 

Each year, I’d refine my creations and share with her, constantly looking for the best unadulterated ingredients. So, you can only imagine my excitement when I discovered Oud: an ancient extract known for its anti-cancer and skin regenerating benefits. I connected with a supplier who helped me get a rare and premium distillation found naturally in the forests of Thailand. 

I soon discovered that Oud not only positively impacts skin, but soothes the mind with meditative and transformative effects. Enhanced with exotic flowers from around the world, the pure and powerful ingredients both harmonize the spirit and correct imbalances in the body. 

With MILÈO, I finally feel like I’ve found the elixirs to help my godmother from the outside, in. She is, after all, the life-force behind my creation. I’m proud to report that she’s still alive and well, battling cancer, yes, but living with a desire to empower herself. 

My mission now is to empower everyone else.
