How did Lord & Lily Begin?
Lily Yang: “Being a working mother as well as an executive professional in a competitive industry, and not even factoring in my other passion projects, I felt like I was always on the go and working on so many things. So the one of the few things I had time to focus on was my skin care.
I have been fortunate enough to be blessed with great genetics of youthful skin so I have never consciously focused my energy on my skin. However, one day in 2011, I was shown an untouched up version of my professional head shot by my photographer and I was shocked by how dry, dull and aged I looked. In that moment, I realize my skin was aging seriously and was clearly unhealthy.
Thus, I started searching for the right products that worked for me and my hectic schedule. After a while, I realized that I was putting way too much effort into my skin care routines with very little return. From there, I began playing with the concept of creating my own products. That was the inception of Lord & Lily.”
What type of products did you try?
Lily Yang: “Due to years of neglect, I was faced with seriously malnourished skin. I invested a lot of time and money in researching many of the ‘leading’ skincare products on the market that were supposed to tackle my skin conditions. I tried it all: various kinds serums and lotions for various functions, vitamin C serums, hyaluronic acid serums, dark spot removing lotions, hydrating serums, vitamin E serums, retinol anti-aging, brightening serums, various essential oils, astringent serum, pore reducing cream, fine-line removing cream, various eye cream and more.”
How did you discover your product?
Lily Yang: “Eventually I found that not only did I spent a fortune on all these products, I also had such a complicated morning/evening routine that included anything from 7 to 10 different products to provide the “full treatment” I needed for my problematic skin. This was an extreme burden for my hectic schedule where I would only have 15 minutes for my skin care and make up routine daily. It was even more troublesome during my travels.
At that point, I began toying with the idea that since I had a wealth of experience in problem solving as well as working with medical and consumer products, I could solve my own skin problems. From there, I knew that I need to know what products or materials work for what problems so I did a lot of research finding all natural good materials that would truly help improve my skin condition, and find ways to put them together. That was when I decided that Lord & Lily products will 1) contain only what the skin needs omitting the use of chemicals for smell, look, and feel; 2) use plant based materials, natural, no harsh chemicals at all; 3) be practical, easy to use, quick to perform as a daily routine, and work quickly. With this in mind, the Serum was born.”
