    Brianne West, Founder of the World’s most sustainable Beauty brand, Ethique, on how to develop a product in your home and create a $100 million brand.

    Brianne West, Founder of the World’s most sustainable Beauty brand, Ethique, on how to develop a product in your home and create a $100 million brand.

    Brianne West is the founder of the world’s most sustainable beauty brand, Ethique. She is on a mission to rid the world of plastic waste.
    Brianne is a qualified biologist; she started her business by creating solid beauty bars in her kitchen in 2012. She has built Ethique from the ground up, with the global brand now valued at more than $100 million, and 20% of its net profit is donated to worthy causes each year.
    In this episode of the Human Potential Podcast, Brianne West talks with our host, Oliver Freer, about how she created her business from the ground up. She talks of the frustration that led her to develop unique products, get noticed by the likes of Britney Spears and Ashton Kutcher and fund growth through successful crowdfunding.
    More about Brianne West 
    Brianne West is one of the most principled and single-minded businesspeople in the Southern Hemisphere. Her non-negotiable, personal value system, and intensity of purpose has led to her incredible success.
    Brianne has always been clear about wanting Ethique to be sustainable in every possible meaning of the word. She is one of those rare people who ‘walks the talk’ in both her personal and business life. Her personal ethics and priorities are embedded within every aspect of the Ethique brand.
    Last year Brianne and her brand Ethique won five major awards, including Ernst & Young’s ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’
    Ethique has prevented more than 8 million plastic bottles from being made and disposed of in landfill since it began operating in 2012 – this is a recent milestone achievement.
    Brianne has a goal to see Ethique be “sustainable from every possible definition of the word and an inspiration to other businesses that you can be environmentally proactive while being financially sustainable.” 
    Ethique’s future goal is to prevent the use of 50 million plastic bottles by 2025.
    She believes sustainable business makes for better business, as she continues to be a shining example to other companies that you can be environmentally proactive, while being financially sustainable.
    More about Ethique
    Ethique manufactures beauty products with a twist. Unique in the world, all products are made in solid form, including shampoos, conditioners, moisturisers, and face, body and bath
    products.

    Why solid? As the bars contain no water, they are free from preservatives, formaldehyde, sodium lauryl sulphate and other undesirable ingredients. Solid also means there are no wasteful jars or
    bottles – bars are sold in water-soluble paper making them 100% waste-free. The result is biodegradable, concentrated products that are truly sustainable. The range is also made with organic ingredients, certified cruelty-free and climate neutral and made from ethically sourced ingredients.

    Ethique bars last for several months each, but most importantly, produce excellent results. This is proven by their strong brand and social media following, loyal customers, and outstanding reviews.
    “I started Ethique out of frustration for the abhorrent amount of waste created by the cosmetics industry, and in particular, the amount of plastic and waste created by our bathroom essentials. I figured out that up to 95% of your bottle of conditioner is made up of water - which is just ridiculous considering you have water in your bathroom! I have always been deeply passionate about the environment and science and so I set about learning cosmetic chemistry (I was completing my Bachelor of Science at university at the time) and looked to formulate a solid shampoo. I figured that switching to a solid product would be the answer not only to the water waste issue, but also plastic waste”. Brianne West
    Ethique are now in over 2500 retailers in sixteen countries across the world, from Japan and Australia, to the USA and Hong Kong.

    Jon Gregory, Entrepreneur, on financial trading using high frequency algorithms and developing algorithms to improve the Human Body

    Jon Gregory is a high-frequency trader, physicist and father of three from Perth, West Australia. Jon is an expert who writes algorithms for financial markets. In his downtime he trained weights. While doing so, he developed an algorithm on weight training which has led to the creation of the ultimate smart exercise device, the V FORM Trainer from Vitruvian FORM.
    In this episode of the Human Potential Podcast Jon Gregory talks with our host, Oliver Freer, about how Jon came up with the idea for Vitruvian FORM; the technology behind it and what it does; the challenges of developing and creating a physical product and the importance of resistance training, particularly for the over 35’s to reverse aging-induced loss of muscle mass and to prevent injuries.
    More about Jon Gregory and Vitruvian FORM
    Jon decided to get into the fitness space because he saw an opportunity to combine hardware and elements of the software that he had spent years developing in his role in the financial markets developing specialised algorithms. Jon has used his unique skill set to solve problems and create a solution that is more effective and so less time consuming for busy people.
    The V FORM Trainer works with an algorithm that knows your strength and automatically adapts to it. This way it challenges you to always do your best and makes you work harder and more efficient while working out for a shorter term.
    Jon has overcome challenges to get his product to where it is today. Jon tells the story of one of his first demonstrations that did not go quite as planned. Now, having overcome early stage production challenges, the next phase is to launch Vitruvian FORM internationally.
    *Vitruvian means “perfect form”
