Our guest today is Vanessa Gray Lyndon, CEO and founder of Vanessa Megan Naturaceuticals™
In 2001, Vanessa was inspired to create her skincare company from a comment by her best friend that ‘you should never put anything on your skin you wouldn’t eat.’ This simple concept motivated extensive research into biochemistry and led Vanessa to the discovery of the multitude of synthetic materials found in the products we use on our bodies every day. Studying the power of natural extracts and oils, she began creating skincare and perfume from natural, wild harvested and bio-available ingredients.
20 years on, Vanessa Megan™ Skincare, body and perfumes are trading in premium department stores internationally, and boasting the same efficacy results as iconic skincare brands. Additionally, Vanessa launched her Home Compostable brand with business partner Nicole Kidd on Earth Day 2020 and have been awarded Global awards and finalists in Eco Warrior awards for this brand.
In this chat with Maureen, Vanessa discusses the idea and passion behind her business and how she has succeeded over the years.
