Class of 2021: Meet our inaugural Launchpad grads

Frigg

With everyday stressors taking a toll on her hair and skin, Kimberly Dillon harnessed the healing properties of cannabinoids and adaptogenic herbs to create her plant-powered wellness collection.

Holy Curls

Aiming to empower women to embrace their natural texture, Badria Ahmed formulated her inclusive line of clean haircare with all curl patterns in mind—spiral, tight, kinky, and everything in between.

Sarisha Beauty

Jacqueline Johal created Sarisha—which means charm and elegance in Sanskrit—a line of handcrafted botanical skincare inspired by her Indian roots and her time spent in Paris.

Clean Rebellion

After learning that not all soap is created equal, Teju Owoye crafted her blend of castile soap using 100% organic olive oil that’s safe for all skin types, making the centuries-old cleanser cool again.

The Veddas

Jacinta Kanakaratnam pulled inspiration from Ayurveda to create her line of self-care staples after she noticed a gap in the market for natural and affordable men’s grooming products.

Mawena

After discovering the skin-transforming powers of the bark of the Mimosa tenuiflora, an antioxidant-rich plant, Helena Mendès decided to make it the star of her vegan skincare range.
