our heritage

the panoramic beauty of Arizona inspired our founder, Cristina
Carlino, in a life-changing way. in 1996, as she hiked Camelback
Mountain, a rainbow appeared and moved her to create philosophy,
a personal wellbeing company that emphasizes gratitude with sim-
plicity and balance at its core. on that day, the fruit of her experience
presented her with the ultimate gift: a feeling that we are all con-
nected to something bigger, and to each other.

our founder also learned that in the unique desert environment, only
the most resilient plants can thrive. influenced by this extraordinary
phenomenon, she partnered with dermatological scientists to bring
her vision of innovative formulas to life, using gold-standard ingre-
dients, experiential scents and memorable textures to achieve trans-
formative results and optimal skin health.
