Jill Scalisi is the Founder and CEO of Scalisi Skincare. Originally from Boston, Jill graduated from Georgetown University and moved to New York City. She worked at two of the top Wall Street investment banks for over 20 years. At age 40, a series of events thrust her into a new business: the financial crisis, and she was diagnosed with skin cancer.
Not satisfied with the skincare products available in the market, she opted to create her own line. Using her background in science and finance, she partnered with leading research and development teams (cosmetic chemists, bio-pharmaceutical and regulatory scientists) and spent 3 years formulating to create Scalisi Skincare.
Scalisi Skincare products are based on wound healing technology. Years of meticulous research about the body's healing mechanism produced the technology behind the line. This science-based line fills a major gap in the anti-aging market with a highly effective alternative to retinol. M/E Technology Better Absorption in a Silky Formula™ is responsible for how the products work and why they feel like silk.
Scalisi Skincare is the 2015 CEW Beauty Quest Winner (the Search for the Next Big Thing in Beauty). Jill is a 2014 Brava Award Winner (Top Women Business Leaders of New York). She has been nominated for Fashion Group International Beauty Entrepreneur of the Year and has been recognized by the beauty industry as a thought leader and innovator.
Jill lives in New York with her two children, Alexandra and Tommy.
