In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, we at Frownies want to thank YOU, our customers, for your on-going support. Your loyalty to our small business means more to us than you’ll ever know!

There are many well-known benefits to supporting small businesses. Small businesses create local jobs. Over $0.67 of every dollar spent at a small business stays within the local economy. And small businesses donate 250% more to local non-profits vs. their big-business counterparts. 

It has been widely reported that the pandemic disproportionately affected small businesses. But Frownies is a resilient little company, that has been led by strong women for over 130 years! And we don’t take for granted that Frownies is still thriving on the other side of these historic past couple of years. 

Frownies is a fifth-generation, female-owned and operated small business.  Our great-great grandmother, a widow, invented Frownies Original Wrinkle Patch in her attic as a way to support her family back in 1889 - at a time before women could even vote!

So, when you support Frownies, you support our family. Our employees are our mothers, daughters, nieces, cousins, and friends that are more like family! From our great-great grandmother’s attic to our current warehouse in Dayton, Ohio, Frownies skincare is handmade in-house and packaged by hand to ship to you! 

“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.” -W. T. Purkiser 


Women have always been capable, powerful, change-makers, just like our founder and the many women in our family that have lead our company since 1889. Our mission is to empower women to honor, embrace, and celebrate who they are!

We at Frownies know that beauty is more than skin deep. Our product is all-natural skincare, and we strive to use this tool to elevate women to be a shining light in the world. 

As a special thank you gift, Frownies would like to extend special discounts to our valuable customers. Click here for access to Frownies exclusive sales and special promotions by signing up for our Frownies Newsletter.
