Hosts Julie Fredrickson, co-founder and CEO of the indie brand Stowaway Cosmetics, and Stephanie Betzler, a digital strategist at product intelligence company Trendalytics, chat with Deanna Utroske about the wide range of trends and factors that are defining and redefining the business of beauty today.
Beauty is Your Business is a production of Mouth Media Network, a podcast production team that specializes in programming about lifestyle businesses. The network’s roster of podcasts includes Fashion is Your Business, Travel is Your Business, Material is Your Business, and of course, Beauty is Your Business.
Behind the network are Pavan Bahl, CEO of Mouth Media; operations and technology pro Rob Sanchez; and media producer Marc Raco, who was on hand for the recording of the episode featuring Utroske.
Overall the show is about the intersection of beauty, business, and technology—and not just podcast technology, tech as it relates specifically to the cosmetics industry. In this latest episode, Fredrickson, Betzler, and Utroske take time to mull over how biotech as well as digital tools like VR, AR, and voice-control technology are impacting the beauty business.
