Why I created the line
My name is Tonya, I’m 49 and the owner and founder of Calla Lily Cosmetics a sister company to the Calla Lily Salon & Spa. I have over 30 years experience in the salon and spa industry. In those 30+ years I have used lots of different product lines. There are so many great company’s. So why would I start my own? I am passionate about great skin, healthy shiny hair, and make up that is non-irritating. I found that there were gaps in the industry that I couldn’t seem to find. Or if I did find it, the product was discontinued after I fell in love. It was so frustrating. I have naturally curly hair and I wanted a curl cream that would enhance my curls but not weigh them down, I created Curl Addict. I have very very dry feet, my heels would crack and bleed. I tried every thing I could get may hands from athlete’s foot product to extreme hydration products, nothing seemed to work. I dug back through my essential oils and started studying again, I wanted something that did both dealt with potential fungus on the feet and dry skin. I created Herbal Therapy Healing Balm for me and it took off, flying off my shelf faster then I could make it. We received feed back that is was working on eczema, psoriasis, bug bites, irritated skin and so much more. I was so pleased others could enjoy the same relief and benefits I did.
Having a hard time finding a line that remained classic for my brides, I started my own Makeup line in 2006. I wanted highly pigmented colors that maintain the health of your skin, and mineral make up that photographed well and lasted through a wedding or special event.
CL Skin care became my next venture. I started by creating facial masks for my treatment rooms. I wanted a mud mask that didn’t have any preservative and we could mix as we need them. I was tired of throwing away mud masks that dried up in the jar. That is wear my fascination began. Being a science nerd and having studied essential oils and skin care ingredients extensively, I started CL Skin with the slogan Nature meet… Science. I believe that nature has part of the answer while science fills in the gaps.
All products are mixed in small batches to insure consistency and freshness of product. Tonya herself handcrafts all the products here at the Calla Lily in a small lab.
So our mission may be different then others, but here it is. I want to see young woman, single moms, and stay at home moms have a place to find themselves, have a place to work around their available hours and learn new skills. A safe place to explore their talents and create. My small lab is a place that I can have these woman work with me around their schedule. We also make our own boxes, labels, flyers, displays and write our own blogs, social media post and more. In a world of latch key kids, I believe that it’s wonderful when mom can stay home and take care of the kids. Although I understand that is not for every one nor do I think every one has the same call in life. Having said that I want to support those who do want to stay home but also need to make a little extra cash around being a mommy. Or young woman that are in school and can only work odd hours.
Proverbs 31:18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
