Tell Us A Little Something About Yourself
Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, fantastic food, wine and culture has always been within reach no matter where you come from and we love that ethos!
We believe that it is time for quality natural skincare to be accessible and affordable to all as well.
What Inspired You To Start Your Own Business and What does your journey look like?
Australian founders Trina Tan and Jason Dang started AndSkin with a broader ambition of bringing products for sensitive skin battlers to the wider community.
What Does Your Business Offer, And What Makes It Unique?
Body wash and hand wash.
Apart from AndSkin products being fragrance free, they also omit all of the other nasties including sulphates and parabens so that you can start and end the day with a clean conscience.
Targeted for sensitive skin, but suitable for all skin types.
What does your Journey Look Like?
The idea of AndSkin came about over one of our many dinner catch ups.
We have always been skincare enthusiasts and started engaging friends, and the community around us to help develop our products (including a chemist), with branding, and getting our story out there.
We have also just launched our online store which we couldn't be more excited about.
Did You Always Think You'd Be Doing This?
Trina and I have always been skincare enthusiasts however we are still working our full time jobs so it is battle being an 'expert' in everything but a master of none.
We thought to ourselves, there are so many products out there especially labelled as natural or for sensitive skin but we wanted to create something that was truly natural.
Targeted to people with sensitive skin but suitable for all skin types. Why should people with skin issues only be served up brands that we believe are expensive, and unaccessible to the wider community.
What Are The Most Rewarding And Challenging Parts Of Your Job And Owning Your Own Business?
Most rewarding has to be working with a business partner who has so much heart, and is completely like minded with the same end goals.
Also brainstorming a bunch of ideas and being creative, while seeing our babies being delivered and used by people who genuinely like our products is super rewarding as well.
Whats Your End Goal? The Moment You'll Know You've Achieved What You Want To?
Our goal is keep building brand awareness and with a little love, hoping to develop and build our product range. We want to be giving more natural fragrance free products to preserve the natural health of peoples skin, and preserve the natural habitats of earth.
