Are you ready for your personal care that cares about you personally?
Are you tired of skincare companies focusing upon everyone else, all the while ignoring your best interests?
You're not imagining it, that is precisely what is happening.
Even with a wink and nod to so called "body positivity" conventional skincare companies reinforce our insecurities by telling us to
"change yourself to get others' appraisal and approval"
Claims to make you
look "other than you are"
kinda makes you wonder
"what the heck is wrong with me in the first place? "
We think Self Care should focus upon
what is Right with us!
Organic and Natural self care products and protocols which
take you on your own personal journey
of self perception, into self acceptance, into self empowerment, into self love.
On a solid foundation of self love,
We empower ourselves to create lives that we love!
When we live into our passions with imagination, intuition and empathy
It is though our own Self Empowerment that
We create New Earth!
Trillium was started in 1994 by a mama on a mission to create appropriately non-toxic skincare for her own young family.
OGmama, a handle she earned by creating one of the very first USDA Certified Organic Personal Care brands in 2000.
Karen still owns and operates the company.
Which brings us to the next ugly irony of conventional personal care,
it's quite often toxic!
Bodywash is a sad slurry of synthetic surfactants that strip protective lipids from your dermal biome, creating the need for moisturizers.
Lotions and creams made possible by petrochemical preservatives that destroy the probiotic balance of your dermal biome.
All of it is cloaked in synthetic fragrances, many known to be carcinogens, endocrine disruptors and hormone impersonators.
Even so called fragrance free cosmetics include a covering scent,
to hide the stench of the lies perhaps?
OGmama founded Trillium specifically to offer an alternative to
the patriarchal poisoning protocols,
our intentionally sourced and mindfully hand crafted solutions are
"Empowered by AI (Authetic Integrity)"
Do you choose to avoid dis-empowering toxic exposures?
have you already been exposed to the point of sensitivity?
Harmonious Habits Transform Lives
Welcome Wellness Within
Trillium was founded by a fresh green lawyer, who learned early that the court system was not the only place to make change. Always the champion of women, Karen Ciesar (OGmama) and her law partner brought one of the first Title 9 Sexual Harassment cases in California, ultimately established important precedent in the California Supreme Court, "Catchpole v Brannon,1995." Look it up, it's a time stamped snapshot of how far women have come in America.
Karen, a new mother, began her journey into the minefield of American personal care with the birth of her first child, Zephyr. Unable to make sense of the ingredients, and dubious of the intentions of large corporations, she studied herbalism and midwifery, and wise woman ways for the next decades. Blessed BE All of the living Goddesses who have inspired Trillium through this amazing journey.
It all started with a simple question
How did our great grandmothers handle caring for their children?
before the conventional mass marketing of toxic dis-empowerment
Karen, set out to create products that honored the grace and integrity of
humans as a part of, not "in spite of" our connection to nature she wanted to create experiences to facilitate sacred connections
of humans with themselves and with the one's they love and care for.
To that end, she devised one rule that still stands today
Trillium is made
