Essentially Lili Interview
Business owner and mum Lili Giglia is no stranger to multi-tasking, raising a young family, looking after the home and studying, all while building a small business.
Like many successful enterprises, Lili decided to establish her skincare brand, Essentially Lili, based on the need to find a solution to a problem – and wanting to share her experience with others.
After suffering from eczema for many years and using products from big-brand companies, Lili began making a nourishing face balm at home to treat her condition – and it worked.
“One morning, I thought, why not see what others think of my face balm and we’ll go from there,” she said.
“So, I went to a women’s breakfast in Zurich where I introduced myself and my products.
“My first customer contacted me because of the samples I handed out.”
Essentially Lili’s products are 100% natural, made using essential oils, vegetable oils and plant-based butters like cocoa and shea.
