This is one of our most excited episodes yet! Join Nicole and Candis as they interview Heather Fritzsche about sustainability in beauty. Heather is #goals every way you look at it! From being the CEO and Founder of You Body Care, a company that innovated customizable, waterless shower gel that actually smells good, in the form of powder packets that break down into clean energy in the environment.
She also founded the Spearhead Group, a women-owned business that helps others with sustainable packaging solutions. As if this wasn't enough- she was the recipient of the 2020 Tory Burch Foundation Fellows Program! She spent more than 20 years in executive management for many different brands, including AXE!
In this episode we talk about how she tackled the huge problem of shower gel, how each year she can keep more than 1 BILLION plastic bottles of body wash out of the landfill system, how she was able to get her products to breakdown into clean energy, and how she plans to scale. Additionally, we tackled the ever-present question of when to self-fund your business and when to seek funding, and when to pull the trigger on risking it all.
You can follow along her journey on social media: @youbodycare.
