ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
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 received a diploma in Organic Skincare from the Centre of Excellence in 2019 and is an affiliate member of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (national).
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.
OUR COMPANY MANIFESTO
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.
Magnolia Skin Essentials is a luxury skincare brand, proudly handcrafting clean beauty products that are free from synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, allergic reactions or other health problems, or are known endocrine disruptors. Your products will always be free from parabens, formaldehyde, and petroleum-derived ingredients.
Our ingredient selections are always toxin-free, cruelty-free, environmentally sustainable, and organic. We strive to use ingredients that have the most skin benefits, particularly pure Magnolia Bark Extract and Magnolia Blossom Essential Oil. Clinical studies have shown the bio-active compounds in Magnolia, Magnolol and Hanokiol, have powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties. Used for centuries in Chinese medicine, Magnolia Bark extract and Magnolia Blossom essential oil are superior anti-aging ingredients that help to reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
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.
