Reading through Lisa Alexander's list of accomplishments is incredibly inspiring--and, truth be told, a wee bit exhausting. A former runway model in New York and Paris, she possesses a wealth of entrepreneurial experience, having founded a pickle company (a pickle company!) and two clothing lines. At one point, Alexander realized that all her professional jet-setting (did we mention she sailed with the America's Cup team?) was taking a toll on her sensitive skin. Ever the entrepreneur, she took matters into her own hands, selling her other companies and spending six years developing the luxury skincare line LAFACE (Lisa Alexander Face) Laboratories. Based in Northern California, LAFACE focuses on technology involving plant stem cells--not surprising, given that Alexander comes from a fifth-generation agricultural family and grew up on a farm outside of Davis. LAFACE debuted in late 2011 and has been amassing a cult following ever since.
