The Making of Hard Lotion with Renee Harris
In this podcast with Renee Harris, there are a few things that you would agree with the saying Less is More. She talked about how she developed her dry lotion and has been able to make its for people and built a strong clientele by giving out free product samples. About Renee Renee's first lotion bar was created out of desperation, mixed with creativity. The creativity came from the pleasure she got from making things from her kitchen for her family, whether it was soap, bread, mung sprouts or our family special "apple kefir" that resembles Martinelli's sparkling juice. The desperation came, literally, from her hands. She had the worst pain from the tips of her fingers that were often covered in Band-aids from the cuts and splits from her daily activities and extremely dry skin. Her hands were her most important tools, but they caused her intense suffering... until the lotion bar. Not only did that first lotion bar heal up her skin within days, but she tried it with her son's seasonal eczema, and was ecstatic that his pain also ended with the lotion bar. Something that was so easy to make turned into a family business after she and her older boys took it to the farmer's market for testing where they received great feedback from customers at the market, as well as several online groups who agreed to test it and fill out surveys. Renee and her husband are now running MadeOn full time. Links Website - hardlotion.com Instagram - @hardlotion

Hanieh Sigari: The Making of Personalized Skincare
Joining us today is Hanieh, the chef and owner of personalized skincare company, Qyral. She shared what her childhood looked like and gave us an insight into her entreprenurial journey, she talked about how she and her husband got separated and found love again as well as how she started Qyral and has been using it as a tool to help enable skincare professionals build customized skincare products for their clients with ridiculously minimal investment. About Hanieh After being disappointed too many times, Hanieh researched the science behind miracle skincare claims, and discovered that it didn't hold any true value. There was more than one thing missing. As you would expect, she discovered an obvious truth; generic products produce nothing more than generic results. There is definitely no one size fits all approach to skincare since our skin compositions are not the same. She then decided to do better, by giving the skin what it truly needs. A tailored approach based on the skins needs. She has since dedicated years to working with world-renowned formulators and dermatologists who all agree: if you want to reverse the signs of aging and improve your skin’s appearance, cellular turnover holds the key. Effective skincare products work by supporting your body’s natural processes. As we age, those processes slow and are compounded by factors including genetics, lifestyle, and environment. And because those factors are unique to us, our skincare products need to be unique too. It’s more than just skincare; it’s cellular care. Combining her training in biochemistry with entrepreneurial experience, she created Qyral, by taking cutting-edge research on aging and marrying it to beauty, science, and empowerment.

Her work ethic, clientele, and awards. She also talked about her amazing reviews as an Esthetician and how she works with her team. Brooke's Bio Brooke Kennedy is more than just a fresh-faced beauty queen from Sequim, WA; she’s got ambition and brains and a profound passion for the health and wellbeing of people and the environment. She learned much of her adult regimens and character qualities from her mother, who taught her from a young age the importance of skin care, and from her father, who owned a restaurant and demonstrated hard work and excellent customer service. After attending the University of Washington, where Brooke studied molecular cell biology, dance, and French, and was an active member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, she decided that medical school was not going to be her path, and she began to pursue other avenues while supporting herself in the food and beverage industry. Along the way, she also spent time in the electrical industry developing business and sales, and working in project management. In 2012 Brooke graduated from the Euro Institute of Skin Care and opened Bliss by Brooke Skin Care in 2013 in a 7 ½’ x 8 ½’ made-over closet of a hair salon. Since then she has continuously improved her knowledge base and skill set as an aesthetician by completing courses in advanced skin analysis (with Florence Barrett-Hill of Pastiche) and acquiring an oncology esthetic certificate, which is a personal passion for Brooke. Skin care, for Brooke, feels like a perfect combination of serving others, creating a memorable guest experience, and using the latest scientific advancements. She works hard and believes that life is too short not to love what you do!

Jennifer Rosenblum has been an Esthetician for over a decade. She is the brain behind The Skin Games, an international competition for skincare professionals.
