Life at 9,000ft offers some of the country’s most breath-taking beauty and is one of the most sought after vacation spots in the land.
Telluride works hard to maintain its roots and to minimize its impact on the area, while maintaining its status as one of the most prestigious ski resort towns in the USA.
But living in the mountains for months at a time exposed founder and CEO, Mary Alice, to the depleting effects of living 9,000 ft closer to the sun in drier air and more extreme climate conditions.
When she felt the accelerated damage of her own skin, she set out to find a solution. When she couldn’t find one? She created many.
Deeply in love with the wildflowers that thrive on the mountainsides, she began the research that would eventually become the basis of TellurideGlow. Studies show that some of the world’s most nutrient-dense plants are found at higher elevations. And when delivered in whole plant formulas, the result is magical.
Alpine botanicals develop survival components that produce abundant secondary metabolites, vitamins and protective phytonutrients that also help to increase the powers of regeneration that repair, brighten and firm the skin.
Observing how these tenacious botanicals have already instinctively figured out how to combat stress, she decided to harness that power in every TellurideGlow formula for the highest skin recovery anywhere.
She began, at first, creating an elixir for herself and Telluride friends. Results were visible and comments rolled in about how great their skin looked.
