Trillium Organics

Trillium Organics was founded in 1994 by Karen Ciesar, when she traded up advocating for women's rights as an attorney to educating and providing women with safe, non-toxic personal care options. After watching both of her grandmothers fall prey to cancer, she hoped that her own children could enjoy a healthier life from making healthier choices. One small problem, in 1994, Organic personal care was an unheard of concept, and the toxic dangers of conventional personal care were not very well understood. Starting with Calendula infused, Baby Bottom Balm, she set out on the quest to create a clean safe product that would replace toxic body wash and lotion. It took three years of bathing in everything organic from coffee grounds to oatmeal that resulted in Organic Body Polish. That first product that 'does it all", remains the cornerstone of the company.

Trillium Organics' mission is to educate people about the importance of making healthier personal care choices for themselves and their children; to create Certified Organic and authentically pure formulations that leave people feeling fantastic and vital, confident that their glowing skin didn't come at the cost of their life long health; and to help people to experience welcome relief from challenges like the rash from chemical sensitivity, psoriasis, eczema, acne or dermatitis.
