#MakersAreEverything: Meet Hillary Peterson
Founder of our Newest Addition: True Botanicals
We love when a morning starts off like this. Buzzing with anticipation (and coffee) the whole Follain staff gathered with Hillary Peterson of True Botanicals.
In the midst of a busy fashion career, Hillary was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and took a closer look at her products, asking “how can I have the longest life?”
Her answer? Create True Botanicals, marrying science, luxury, health, and efficacy. She and her partner are selective about where it’s carried, and we’re honored that now you can find it at Follain. Here’s the 411 on some of Hillary’s favorites.

In our intimate setting, nothing was off the table, even blemishes. The gel-meets-milk cleanser, featuring green and white tea and hydrating aloe vera, cleared up Hillary’s face without stripping, making it a true dry-oily crossover.
A custom-made kombucha to restore skin’s balance and a white tea base to battle free radicals make this mist an overachiever.
“In one month, everyone sees a difference” with this product, Hillary shared. Seed oils (like chia and avocado), chosen for their specific Omegas, are light but pack a big punch. “Think of how a seed transforms.” Papaya and passionfruit deliver an added vitamin boost.
“We looked at what’s found in nature, what skin loses over time, and we mirrored that exactly.” Potent peptides meet antioxidant-rich resveratrol for amped up moisture retention and restored suppleness. (Hello, collagen production, and youthful, dewy awesomeness.)
