Formulator and Founder; Dr. Cindy Jones
Cindy grew up hiking, gardening and now farming. As she began to see changes in her skin due to sun, wind, and the arid Colorado climate, she looked for ways to minimize those effects. Using her knowledge as a biochemist and herbalist she studied solutions to keep the skin as healthy as possible under adverse weather conditions. Her hobby turned into a passion and she formulated Colorado Aromatics skin care line to be sustainable, highly functional and have great skin feel.
“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.
Dr. Jones and her husband live on their Certified Naturally Grown farm (at 5,000 feet) where they grow herbs for the Colorado Aromatics skincare line. From their farm they look at Long’s Peak which summits over 14,000 feet and Mount Meeker. She believes that the natural beauty of the herbs and their surroundings shines through in the product and, ultimately, you.
Cindy’s passion for science, her love of herbs and the outdoors is the catalyst behind Colorado Aromatics skin care line. She brings a scientific perspective to the field of herbalism and has found her niche in formulating natural cosmetics.
