Meet The Founder, Cynthia

Cynthia Hill is the founder and Vice President of Third Day Soaps Garden Wellness LLC, a company that offers a range of natural and biodegradable bath and body care products. Hill started her business in 2003, after the death of her mother, with a small investment and a desire to ease her grief. She quickly gained a reputation for her innovative and customer-inspired products, which are packaged in a way that minimizes waste and encourages refill and reuse.

In 2015, Hill was nominated for the Martha Stewart American Made award in recognition of her business. Hill is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and has completed several business and horticulture courses, including a fast-track venture capital course at Robert Morris College and a botany and horticulturist course at Pittsburgh Conservatory. In 2017, she was awarded an honorary PhD in Cosmetic Science from Carnegie Mellon University.

Today, Hill's products can be found in spas and boutiques throughout the Pittsburgh area. She has received media attention for her work, including a feature on the Jennifer Anktkowiak Show and a full page spread in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
