Tell us about yourself

Before I started my skincare line, I was actually working in tech, but my passion was melting butter and oils at home, creating creams and serums for myself since my skin was a red mess. I struggled with acne and other skin issues, which were embarrassing. I was exhausted from using different products and skincare lines that didn't actually do anything but clutter my bathroom and flare up my sensitive skin.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Getting emails from happy customers.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Keeping up with all of the different departments which make up a company.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Do research for at least two months beforehand. Have a plan of action. Don't wing everything.

Where can people find you and your business?
