Our Formulator, Founder and CEO, Dr. Cindy Jones

Dr. Cindy Jones, founder & formulator of Colorado Aromatics and Sagescript Institute, is a biochemist, herbalist, published author and skincare sage with extensive experience in physiology, toxicology, microbiology, cancer research and cosmetic science. Her passion for science and her love of herbs is the catalyst behind the Colorado Aromatics skincare line and Sagescript Institute consulting firm.

As an herbalist and scientist, Cindy knows that the best ingredients come from a combination of plants and green chemistry. “Inflammation and oxidation of the skin cells are two key processes that accelerate the aging process” says Cindy. Herbs provide multiple and complex antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which help to combat signs of aging and skin damage caused by wind, sun and other environmental factors that we are exposed to on a daily basis, especially for those who love the outdoors.

Cindy grows many of the herbs found in the Colorado Aromatics skincare line on her Certified Naturally Grown farm at 5,000 feet elevation not far from Long’s Peak which summits over 14,000 feet. Plants grown at high elevation have to work harder to survive, and ultimately, produce more active components. Cindy extracts the herbs in a number of ways; distillation, infusions, tinctures and decoction, to use in her cosmetics line. She believes that the natural beauty of the herbs and their surroundings shine through in the product and, ultimately, the end user.

Cindy is a highly sought after product formulator / research and development consultant in the natural cosmetics industry. She brings a scientific perspective to the field of herbalism and natural skincare and has created a niche for herself in formulating natural cosmetics.

Volunteers

We have several volunteers who join us on the farm for weeding, harvesting and processing herbs. Many of these volunteers are herb students while others just enjoy spending time outdoors helping to keep us Certified Naturally Grown. I have to say, our volunteers are some of the most interesting people I’ve met. If you are interested in being on our volunteer newsletter list you can sign up below. Note that this is different than our Colorado Aromatics or Sagescript Newsletters and is meant only for those wanting to volunteer on our farm. We also occasionally take herbal interns.  Thanks, Cindy
