#BeautyBoss: Maya Crothers, Founder of CIRCCELL
This week’s #BeautyBoss is Maya Crothers, Founder of CIRCCELL—an innovative luxury skincare line that harnesses potent age-defying ingredients and actives, known to deliver results through performance-driven formulations. The targeted collection provides a sensual experience with a synergistic array of the world’s most high-performing ingredients, is free from fragrances, parabens and harsh chemicals, and never tested on animals. Here, she shares her beauty secrets, wellness tips, best advice, and more:
What inspired the creation of CIRCCELL?
The need for elegant, high-performance skin care. The extreme environment where I live in Jackson Hole made it very difficult to keep my skin supple and beautiful. I could not understand why, given the available technologies, there wasn’t a line that could perform under demanding conditions yet still felt luxurious. This was the genesis of CIRCCELL.
Over the years, we’ve also become committed to the idea of delivering this performance as cleanly as possible. This commitment is not static. Phenoxyethenol was the go-to, natural replacement for parabens for years. We are now learning that parabens are not that great for the environment, so we are removing them from our formulations. We expect to be phenoxyethenol-free very soon!
What does CIRCCELL stand for?
It’s a hybrid of circle and cellular. Circle denoting whole and balanced and cellular denoting transformation on a deep, cellular level.
How long have you been in business?
Tell us more about your line.
Our ABO products (one for eye and one for face) are built around a class of ingredients called perfleurocarbons—these are medical-grade gas carriers created for the wound healing industry. Super high-tech and extremely effective.
Where are your products sold?
We work with some of the country’s most respected celebrity estheticians: Joanna Czech in Dallas, Dangene in NYC, and Gina Mari in Beverly Hills, to name a few. We are also at luxury spas like the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah, and we recently began a partnership with Neiman Marcus. We are in three stores currently and expect to roll out to more throughout 2019!
What’s your favorite product from your line?
That is a hard question…it’s like asking me to pick my favorite child—impossible!
Who inspires you?
I am inspired by my family and friends, the beautiful town of Jackson Hole, and the AMAZING beauty entrepreneurs that I have met on this journey. I truly am blessed to have so much inspiration in my life.
Secret to success?
No big secret. Get up and fight every day. Breathe easy when things are good. Stay focused and keep your eye on the prize when life is challenging.
Of course I treat myself to a daily CIRCCELL regimen! I also believe that allowing yourself to experience nature as often as possible is the most underused beauty strategy. We are wired to connect with nature. I feel my heart rate go down and clear my head when I’m outside. The change is palpable. I could not live without my relationship with nature.
Same as above…nature is truly my outlet and a favorite way to stay balanced and healthy!
Relationships matter most. In your personal life and in business.
