We aim to educate, inspire, and showcase people who are doing incredible things across the industry. Through sharing experiences and stories of how people go about launching their beauty brands and how retailers are adapting to accommodate the changes in the marketplace, we can help those on a similar path to make things happen.
In this 1st episode Janet interviews Annie Tevelin. Annie is the founder of a 100% vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, skincare brand called SkinOwl.
