As biochemist Dr. Cindy Jones grew up hiking and gardening in Colorado, she noticed the impact the environment had on her skin. And she decided to fight back. A sage woman, Jones knew the best recovery from the elements comes from the elements themselves. Drawing from her surroundings, she developed a skincare collection that contains botanicals grown on her farm in Longmont. “By knowing which herbs are the most powerful and combining them with other active ingredients from green chemistry, it makes for very powerful products,” Jones says. Using antioxidant-rich ingredients such as elderberry, fennel, and calendula, her products deliver a healthy dose of nutrients to keep skin young, clean, and strong. To achieve the best results, follow this four-step skincare routine using Colorado Aromatics professional-grade skincare range:
