Linda Rodin has worked as a model, stylist and fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar, dressing famous and charismatic women including Laetitia Casta, Halle Berry, Gisele Bundchen and Adriana Lima. Despite access to ultra-exclusive skincare lines Rodin longed for something simpler, a product that caress the skin noticeably and without delay so she brought her smarts to the skincare arena. After experimenting with essential oils in her bathroom for nearly two years, Rodin put the finishing touches on her first elixir, the original RODIN olio lusso face oil, in 2007. (The name—which translates as luxury oil —is in honor of the easygoing Italian beauty that has long inspired Linda’s own style). The oil soon developed a cult following.
