After leaving a ten-year post working in cancer immunotherapy as a biochemist, Monique Kofsky decided to combine her knowledge of chemical reactions in the human body with the importance of using great ingredients. She entered the fascinating world of soap making and spent the next year developing a gentle formulation made with high quality, fragrance, and harsh chemical-free ingredients that would promote healthy and balanced skin.
In this episode, Monique discusses why sustainability is important to her and how she thoughtfully incorporated it into her ingredients, packaging, and shipping. We also chat about her R&D process, the impact of the pandemic and the social justice movement, and tips for pricing and wholesale. Monique clearly lays out how to strategically start a business from conceptualization to execution.
