Holly Thaggard



Holly Thaggard is the Founder of Supergoop!, the first and only lifestyle brand 100% dedicated to UV protection. Holly is aiming to change the way the world thinks about SPF through clean, feel-good, highly innovative formulas. When a close friend was diagnosed with skin cancer, Holly learned that it’s the most common type of cancer in the U.S. – and that it’s primarily preventable with the use of daily SPF.


But she also discovered that the #1 reason people don’t wear it every day is because it doesn’t feel good on their skin. So in 2007, she launched Supergoop!, a collection of ingredient-conscious, efficacious formulas that deliver broad spectrum protection in unique, user-friendly and feel-good ways. Holly is on a mission to stop the epidemic of skin cancer by changing consumer myths about SPF through these products, which also nourish the skin and blend in seamlessly with your daily routine. As Founder & CEO, Holly has hired a best-in-class leadership team and has been intimately involved with establishing and developing all divisions of the brand, from marketing to product development to sales. Over the course of her Supergoop! career, the brand has been included in Allure’s “Best of Beauty” list four years in a row and has won a 2012 CEW Award for Indie Beauty Brand. Holly graduated from LSU with a B.S. in Education, and prior to starting Supergoop!, she was a third grade teacher and professional harpist. She currently lives in San Antonio, Texas with her husband and two children.

Trinity Mouzon Wofford



Trinity was first exposed to the natural wonders of holistic health while growing up in the Hudson River Valley. Surrounded by a family who prioritized the impact of natural, well-sourced ingredients and a whole body approach to wellness, she was inspired to pursue a career as a holistic physician.


While pre-med at NYU, however, she became increasingly conflicted by the lack of accessibility in natural health care. She shifted gears and followed a marketing career in the tech world, all the while keeping personal wellness a top priority in her daily life.


It was there that Trinity decided to merge her newfound interest in brand building and storytelling with her lifelong passion for natural wellness. In 2017, she launched Golde with her partner, Issey Kobori. Driven to make wellness fun and approachable for consumers, the brand’s refreshing take on wellness has resonated with an incredible range of consumers and brands, including Sephora, Goop, The Wing and Urban Outfitters.

Kandice Hansen
