Founders

WELCOME TO URJA. LET US TELL YOU OUR STORY.

 

We are three generations of beauty trailblazers. Our story began in the 1950’s when Fred Quirk (father of Liz Bishop and grandfather of Molly Argue) was hired by industry icon Elizabeth Arden and then went on to work with Karl Lagerfeld and the esteemed Main Chance Spa.

 

Liz continued her dad’s passion for beauty, spending her 30-year career in skincare and healthcare. Having previously founded two Indie skincare brands, she was not looking to do another... but, the pull of her personal anti-inflammatory journey was undeniable, and she began to correlate it to skin-health.

 

Love for the business runs in the family.  After 8 years in Los Angeles, working in TV and in entrepreneurship, Molly moved forward from the high-stress lifestyle of LA and retuned to Arizona, where she and Liz began bringing URJA to life.

 

URJA (meaning energy, strength + breath) transcends clinical skincare by acknowledging that the mind, body, soul + skin are all connected. Skincare is now a part of our wellness journey. We are committed to elevating today’s skincare experience.

 

Welcome to our tribe!

 

10x10,

Liz & Molly

 

*For generations, 10x10 has been our family motto, meaning may all your good be increased tenfold.
