About Us

Mission Statement:

Tomboy creates organic skincare products for women reflecting an adventurous spirit steeped in a commitment to hometown values and rural entrepreneurism.

Tomboy is a family business that began in a high-school classroom at Alvin C. York Agricultural Institute in Jamestown, TN, after a chemistry experiment produced a very effective plant-based poison ivy remedy…and a business idea was born!

Melissa Kreis-Stephens, Founder/CEO Tomboy Organic Skincare Co. (LLC) formulates organic plant salves, skin care and makeup using herbs and roots from the native deciduous forests of the southeast.   In 2016, Tomboy won the American Choice Best Brand Award.  That same year Tomboy’s War Woman Scar Oil Salve won Trailblazer Girl’s Top Skin Care Products of 2016.

Tomboy adheres to the FDA’s Compliance Training & Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for natural products and cosmetics.  They follow FairWild Standards and the World Health Organization Guidelines for collection of medicinal plants.

Tomboy is a hometown, grassroots business that manufactures in Deer Lodge, Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau.
