Originally from Trinidad, Lila Pinder is the youngest member in a family of twelve. She studied nursing and skincare in England, and started her career in the hospital. While in England, she met her husband Allan, and together they moved to The Bahamas, where Lila saw a need for skincare that wasn’t being met. She noticed that people were uncomfortable with their blemished skin, but there were no available solutions that worked for long-lasting results. Pulling together her skincare training in England, Canada, and the U.S., she formulated Perfec-Tone products and opened Lila’s Skin Care in 1980.
