Jeannie Jarnot built “a platform to help people discover the best in clean beauty in a focused and intentional way” after years working as a spa director, and admittedly being “very confused about ingredients [despite] studying them all the time.”
Now she’s focused on helping her partner brands and the larger cosmetics and personal care industry think about the next steps in sustainability.
“The first thing I did when I started was to define an ingredient standard,” Jarnot tells Cosmetics Design editor Deanna Utroske. “And we’re now eliminating any products that have silicone, dimethicone, cyclopentasiloxane—any sort of non-biodegradable ingredients,” she says.
