We’ve been super busy here at Lily Lolo HQ, we’re working hard behind the scenes on making our packaging more sustainable, packing all your orders and recently we got to take a trip to San Francisco to see visit one of our fave US stockists Credo Beauty. Credo are dedicated to bringing the very best in clean beauty products to the US market and we couldn’t love their ethos any more! We were there to take part in their first ever annual Clean Beauty Summit. Here’s what Vikki (Company Founder) and Amy (Marketing) got up to in the Californian city….
A bright and early start to make it down to London ready for the 11 hour flight, the traffic was so bad as we neared Heathrow and it was touch and go for check in!
After some much needed beauty sleep we woke up early, like 2am early, ready for a busy day of meetings ahead!
We explored the central Union Square area which boasts an impressive skyline and lots of shops before heading across town to meet our US distributor for a catch-up, then it was onto Credo to meet their team!

Next stop Credo’s head office to meet Annie, Dawn and the team to talk about some exciting plans for 2019. It was so great to meet them all after years of emails and they gave us such a warm welcome.

Day 2: The day of the Clean Beauty Summit and a caffeine fuelled early morning start over at The Battery Hotel ready for Vikki to have some photos taken.
We found some free time to see more of San Francisco’s tourist hotspots, here’s Vikki nailing that iconic Golden Gate Bridge shot!
Mrs Doubtfire’s house, located on 2640 Steiner Street was high on our must-see list so we stopped off there for a quick photo before heading back to the Credo Clean Beauty Summit.
Back at The Battery, these gorgeous rooftop views made the perfect backdrop for Credo’s brand founders’ video which will launch on International Women’s Day to celebrate female empowerment, we can’t wait to share the final cut!
With the video wrapped it was onto Next World to hear from Credo’s CEO Dawn Dobras and Co-Founder & COO Annie Jackson about what’s in store for Credo in 2019. The event finished over at The Batch for some much needed cocktails and a clean beauty panel.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to Credo for organising the event, it was an honour being one of the 200+ attendees at the summit. It was fantastic connecting with all the dreamers, doers, disruptors and drivers of Credo’s stocked brands! See you next year San Francisco!
