About Cynthia

Violets Are Blue was created because of a personal need for skincare that is natural and safe for the body as well as the environment.

Born in Seattle, Cynthia first landed in New York City to fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a Broadway Actress, after completing a major in theatre Arts at the University of Oregon. She worked on Broadway for 10yrs before checking out the real estate scene (from one tough job to another!) and quickly became one of the top brokers in the city. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, Cynthia’s successful career in the cutthroat world of New York City real estate came to a skidding halt.

She is also proud to have created a company that supports women helping women, with 10% of the purchase price of all products going toward skincare donations for cancer patients.

Since its inception, Violets Are Blue has been awarded Best In Show by the Indie Beauty Expo, Best Brand With a Mission by Sophie Uliano's Gorgeously Green Beauty Awards, Best Of from The Beauty Shortlist, Best Of from A Night For Green Beauty and Best Of From Organic Spa Magazine. Cynthia has been featured in top magazines such as Women's Day, Self, Vogue, Allure, Organic Spa and Health Magazine, to name a few. 

Violets Are Blue operates under the philosophy that women, particularly those over 40 are better than beautiful!
