BEAUTY & FRAGRANCE
Hildegaard is a luxury creative house that weds the mystical, the organic, and the scientific. Founded by internationally renowned artist Lia Chavez, Hildegaard seeks to heal the relationship between humanity and the plant world.
Hildegaard is in the process of being certified by Positive Luxury with the Butterfly Mark, which is awarded to luxury businesses in recognition of their commitment to creating a positive impact on society and the planet. The Butterfly Mark is an independent certification for luxury brands that meet the highest standards of verified innovation and environmental social performance.
As the first couture offering in the beauty industry, Hildegaard strives to compose the most intoxicating beauty creations in the world for a new generation of conscious connoisseurs by introducing new levels of sensorial pleasure to beauty ritual, defining the vanguard of artisanship, heirloom agriculture, and permaculture, and advancing toward circularity and full transparency. The exquisite plants featured in their compositions derive from regenerative agriculture and are crafted using uncompromising artistry and environmentally energising processes.
A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER
My work impacts people deeply, leaving them with an inner illumination. They experience a homecoming to their own primal miraculousness. Through the house of Hildegaard, I reveal the genius that is already present in the natural world.
I revere plants. As an artist specializing in the medium of light for two decades, I know they are the most knowledgeable scholars and cosmic observers of light on our planet. I harness my knowledge of art, consciousness, holistic modalities, and the science of engaging botanicals for radiant living to compose botanical creations and multidisciplinary experiences which renew our sense of wonder toward Nature and her abundant verdancy.
The botanical world is the ultimate gift humans have yet to unwrap. Through Hildegaard, our relationship with plants is clarified and elevated. I am philosophically committed to this deep vision of reintegration — light and matter, sun and earth, nature and human. People are more connected with the power of light. I seek to catalyze the creation of beauty — beauty that reminds human beings of the infinite and our connection to it.
