About Us


Founder/Creator Lisa Duffy, a 2nd generation Hispanic entrepreneur is an author, speaker, and former divorce recovery coach for 20 years. Her passion was helping people heal from pain and experience new life. She founded Magnolia Skin Essentials in 2018 and began formulating natural skin care products as a new and exciting way to continue helping people heal; through toxin-free products that are as luxurious and exciting to use as they are good for your skin. Lisa believes everyone should have the opportunity to become the best version of themselves, and her vision with Magnolia Skin Essentials products is precisely to help people achieve that goal.



We believe all people deserve to become the best versions of themselves. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and plays a key role in your overall health. That’s why we enjoy making products that are good for your skin and help you look and feel your best.

Our ingredient selections are always toxin-free, cruelty-free, environmentally sustainable, and organic. We strive to use ingredients that have the most skin benefits, such as African Marula Oil and other oils high in essential fatty acids, Turmeric, raw beeswax which is loaded with Vitamin A, and Pure Magnolia Bark Extract and Magnolia Blossom Essential Oil as examples.

We believe that all human beings have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That’s why we source locally as much as possible, support small and women-owned businesses, and donate regularly to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and local charities.

Magnolia Skin Essentials stands out as a clean luxury brand that offers the charm and sophistication of Charleston, South Carolina (#1 travel destination in the world). We use Magnolia Essential Oil in many of our products because of its bountiful skin benefits, and because it represents the strength and beauty of women.
