Hi, I’m a product design student at the University of Brighton with a natural skincare business.
I started by running workshops and demonstrations on how to make shampoo, lip-gloss and bath bombs, when I was 13.
At 18, I was given the use of an empty shop on Totnes high street, for 2 years, so I created my own range.
I took on too much and wasn’t managing to focus on the things I really wanted to do; creating kits and the website.
When the shop lease ran out, it was a natural time to re-evaluate and find a less complicated way to make a difference. The best thing I got out of the whole experience was realising I needed to aim high and simplify. I’ve always aimed high, it’s the simplifying part I’m working on. I’m applying it to my business and how I approach life.
