Lisa Price

It all started in her Brooklyn kitchen more than 20 years ago. After losing her job as a production team member on The Cosby Show when the series ended, Lisa Price took her hobby of manufacturing homemade butters, fragrances and bath oils to the tables of local flea markets. Eventually, she expanded her line to accommodate customer's requests for hair care products. Through years of studying and cultivating her passion, exceptional customer service and word-of-mouth, her business boomed around her neighborhood and made her the talk of the town — and Carol's Daughter, named in honor of her mother, was born. Now Lisa is the proprietor of a multi-million dollar empire that is enjoyed by customers around the world.
