Growing up, Lily Diamond worked alongside her mother, a developer of all-natural massage oils for spas across Maui, Hawaii. Her mother's love for plants struck a chord. "I understood how important it was for what I put on my body to be as pure as what I ate," she says. "Everything is completely edible," Lily says of the masks and scrubs she makes, though she doesn't recommend actually eating them. (Some of her scrubs are salt-based--exfoliating, but not exactly tasty.) For Lily, inspiration comes from volunteering at her community garden and frequenting local farmers' markets. "The fruit and plants that I see growing, what I see farmers bringing to market each week--all of those end up being my compass," she says.
