It also makes you understand that you, as a special human, are fantastic too.

What has been the most challenging aspect of developing this line?

A big difficulty for us has actually been our commitment to sustainability. Every product rather has an easy plastic service. I have a remarkable mascara formula that I’ve desired to make for over a year– more to come on that soon– but you really can’t do it without plastic.

How have you had the ability to discover a solution then?

We deal with Oceanworks, a company that goes out into the ocean and gathers plastic from those plastic islands ruining the oceans, and after that melts it into pellets, which you can then recycle. When you utilize our [ future] mascara, you won’t be developing more plastic waste; you’re helping take plastic out of the ocean and waterways [and] getting it back into the recycling stream– and even worst case scenario, in a better land fill. It really takes a lot of pushing to carry out services like that.

What’s your proudest minute up until now since creating Neen?

I am incredibly pleased with making such an amazing [brand] that really delivers. It was a new difficulty for me to work with cleaner solutions in mind. I think the understanding is that clean isn’t as high efficiency as traditional solutions, and I believe I have actually altered that with Neen.

What suggestions do you have for up-and-coming brand founders?

I would state that you really need to be passionate about what you’re doing, and fixing what you see to be a genuine problem or supplying something that truly is missing out on. We’re starting to see a great deal of fallout from the lots of brand names that are developed around influencers and celebrities.
