“I started VERDE LUSSO out of a personal desire to find the very best of luxury, clean beauty and make it accessible to others. I’m excited to offer a shopping experience where you can relax knowing that your intention to shop clean aligns with what we stock on our shelves.”
-Mary Frances Dale, Founder
began with a desire to find the best in luxury clean beauty.
As a clean beauty devotee, self-care enthusiast, and self-proclaimed 'glow getter', I was on the hunt for products that were luxurious and effective— products that would stand up to my strict standards for non-toxic ingredients.
The products I select are held to the highest standards of clean ingredients (typically a 0-2 score on the EWG Rating, the nation's leading standard for ingredient safety), but they also must feel luxurious, look fabulous, and be effective.
You really can have it all.

Eternally enthralled by style, beauty, and the world of holistic living, Mary Frances Dale found herself eager to create a destination for the best natural beauty brands— curated through the lens of luxury.

When Mary Frances moved back to the South in 2020, she saw a perfect opportunity to bring a clean beauty destination to the region while highlighting the unique natural brands and personalities of the area.
