On the 8th of March, men and women around the world will join together in celebration of International Women’s Day. Today I am showcasing the inspiring founders behind the world’s most iconic beauty brands.
MARIA HATZISTEFANIS – RODIAL
“Success is not final and failure is not fatal.”
London-based beauty entrepreneur, Maria, founded her ground-breaking skincare company Rodial in 1999. She identified a gap in the market for targeted skin treatments. Her growing beauty empire is sold through 20.000 doors across 35 countries. It is renowned for its evocative product names and is loved by a number of high-profile celebrities.
ALYSON HOGG – VITA LIBERTA
“Choose with confidence. Every product was made with you in mind.”
Alyson was passionate about formulating efficacious products that were gentle and nurturing for the skin. She pioneered technology to create advanced optimal tanning formulas while hydrating, conditioning, and soothing skin with organic ingredients. And so, Vita Liberta was born. It is the world’s first odorless tanning cream: non-toxic, organic, and paraben-free.
ANITA KAUSHAL – MAULI
“Every stage of life offers an opportunity to grow and evolve; embrace where you are and know you are enough.”
Mauli Rituals is a luxury skincare brand that centers around wellness and natural beauty. Anita and her husband Bittu founded it in 2014 after a personal family loss led the pair back to India. Utilizing the rich herbs and healing traditions of their motherland, the brand fast became the pair’s personal mission to learn, create and share the power of India’s beauty ingredients, whilst also enabling them to raise.
LENA KORRES – KORRES
“Keep a balance between your professional and personal life. Set priorities, acknowledge your strengths and limitations at all times, and always perform to the best of your abilities.”
Lena Korres is the co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer, who still today leads the all-female R&D team at KORRES. Founded in 1996, KORRES brings the natural beauty of Greece to your fingertips. It delivers clinically proven results using the latest scientific advancements and the most powerful natural ingredients. From the beginning, KORRES followed their clean conscience; from supporting 1000+ farmer families to using recyclable packaging.
