“I've been a skin health expert and Master Aesthetician since 1999 in Manhattan. I launched my own skincare line, Jillian Wright Skincare in 2014 with little success when it came to meeting retailers. Since business was booming at my spa, I never had time to network or promote my new skincare line. I was frustrated that I was 5 blocks away from Bergdorfs and couldn’t figure out how to meet the buyer. That is when the idea came to me about creating a platform specifically for indie beauty brands to meet retailers, press, and beauty professionals that would help them scale their business.
Fast forward 6 years, and we have created an ecosystem that supports anyone in beauty looking to grow their business. I have met thousands of brands, members of the press, beauty executives and those who support indie beauty brands to understand the landscape, obstacles and what it takes to succeed.
Since Indie Beauty Media Group is global, we have assembled a team across the US and Europe to make sure all beauty brands and companies are taken care of properly. We are still a small company, but our dedicated team is as passionate as we are.”
