Founder and skin care sage, Dr. Cindy Jones, is a biochemist and herb farmer with extensive experience in physiology, toxicology, microbiology, cancer research and cosmetic science. Cindy has also worked as a research scientist, a college instructor and is a published author. Dr. Jones is a highly sought after product development consultant to the natural cosmetic and skin care industry. Her passion for science and her love of herbs is the catalyst behind Colorado Aromatics skin care line. She brings a scientific perspective to the field of herbalism and skin care and has found a niche in cosmetic formulating.

Sagescript Institute began in 2003 to meet the need for information on the evidence based use of botanicals as well as microbiological services for the home cosmetics crafter. Since then it has evolved to meet more needs. We do consulting, formulating, private label, small scale manufacturing, make and sell botanical extracts and make our own line of products under the name Colorado Aromatics.

We have several volunteers who join us on the farm for weeding, harvesting and processing herbs. Many of these volunteers are herb students while others just enjoy spending time outdoors helping to keep us Certified Naturally Grown. I have to say, our volunteers are some of the most interesting people I’ve met. If you are interested in being on our volunteer newsletter list you can sign up below. Note that this is different than our Colorado Aromatics or Sagescript Newsletters and is meant only for those wanting to volunteer on our farm. Thanks, Cindy
