About Aloe Bud
Designed out of the pure necessity of their own mental health struggles; Aloe Bud creator, Serenity Discko searched the App Store for something, anything to help with basic self-care. After trying and ignoring countless self-care apps and feeling guilty for doing so, finding one that met their needs and lifestyle became frustrating. Serenity believed there was no better time to start designing a gentle, all-in-one personal care app, using their own experiences, affinity for pixel art and the needs of their communities to bring this simple idea to life.
