Lily pioneered organic skin care in 1986, with the first and original Colorado organic skin care company.
Skin care products have always been a central component of Lily’s life, as she struggled with severe acne throughout high school and lost confidence because of the blemishes on her skin. She tried everything: dermatologist-grade lotions, crèmes, and pills.
She tried foundation – no foundation – everything, but to no avail. Until she tried organic skin care products – and her skin was cured.
“When I used organic skin care for the first time, I finally found a confidence that had missing for years of my life,” Lily says. “My goal is to give that back to others looking for skin care solutions.”
Lily not only bottles us the organic skin care products and ships them to stores like Whole Foods and Vitamin Cottage, but she also grows every herb and essential plant for her products in her organic farm in Colorado. It’s truly remarkable.
Whereas some “organically” labeled products source their ingredients, Lily sows, plants, nurtures and harvests her ingredients by hand. It is the most raw and natural process for any skin care product, and Lily firmly believes the process delivers a superior product.
“There’s nothing out there like it,” she says. “It’s the best.”
The Lily Farm Fresh Organic Skin Care line includes cleansers, moisturizers, toners, mask and lip treatments and anti-aging skin care for a variety of skin types. Precise amounts of organic ingredients like almond oil, aloe vera, ylang ylang, tea tree oil, elder and coltsfoot are added to each batch.
Lily moved to Colorado at the age of 16 with $132 and a pair of used skis. At 22 she founded the Senior Assistance Center in Denver, a non-profit organization that has raised over $15 million for the elderly poor. Lily is also the author of Beauty, Health, and Happiness, a non-fiction piece on body care products and natural happiness-enhancing techniques. Lily has her masters degree from the University of Colorado at Denver.
