About Dr. Linda Miles, DOM – Vice President and Formulator of DERMA E
Dr. Linda Miles, DOM, Vice President and Formulator of DERMA E, has blended her expertise in complementary health care and biotechnology for over three decades, pioneering the development of innovative, high-performance natural personal care products.
As a health practitioner and business leader in the industry, Miles has been at the forefront of the cultural shift to natural health solutions. “People still ask me what the benefit of using natural products is, and I always respond that ‘nature knows best’,” Miles says. “The power of nature is pretty amazing, and we often can’t re-create that complexity and balance in a lab by using just synthetic ingredients. Nature provides us with healing agents that are superior in performance to chemical alternatives—antioxidants are our best example of that. Many people were under the misconception that ‘natural’ means a product is not as strong. We’re changing that ideology and have proven time and again, via scientific channels, that natural can be even more effective than man-made.”
As part of her lifelong passion in holistic health, Miles received status as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM) from the state of New Mexico. She also earned her Masters Degree in Oriental Medicine from Emperors College of Traditional Oriental Medicine and is a Licensed Acupuncturist. Once a week, Miles donates her time giving Chinese herb and acupuncture treatments to MEND clients. MEND, Meet Each Need with Dignity, is a non-profit organization that helps relieve the effects of poverty through a holistic and humanitarian approach.
In Miles’ spare time, she enjoys horseback riding, hiking, camping, waterskiing, and organic gardening with red worm compost. With a passion for animals, she also loves spending time with her horses, dogs and cats, and raising Chinese Silkies, a breed of chicken named for its unique silky feathers.
Miles and her husband Ron live on a five-acre ranch in Agua Dulce, California surrounded by animals. They have two daughters, Sonny and Kristy, who share her interest in science and healing. Their older daughter Sonny graduated from MIT, spent two years in the Peace Corp in Paraguay, graduated from UCSF as an MD and is currently living in Gallup, NM working as a Hospitalist at IHS. Their younger daughter Kristy did her undergraduate work at UCSD, graduated from Tufts Veterinary School and is currently a licensed DVM who resides in Massachusetts.
