One of the best things about working with BlushPretty is the exposure I’ve gotten to local brands that are doing great things in the beauty and skincare industry. Stephanie Daga makes a strong effort to support local companies, and through working with her I’ve discovered some inspiring, passionate women who have built incredible brands.
Pelle Beauty is a vegan skincare company that makes a variety of natural products from cleansers to lip balms and beauty mists to (what they’re likely best known for) facial oils. Today I’m featuring Founder Marnie Cipriani for the latest Words from the Wise installment to expand further on what Pelle is all about and how she got to where she is today.
Name: Marnie Cipriani
Job Title & Company: Founder, Pelle Beauty
Share a bit about yourself and what you do: I am the owner of Pelle Beauty, a niche skincare line with a focus on natural green beauty and aromatherapy. Mother Nature has supplied us with so many beautiful plants, they are not only great for eating but they also make way for amazing skin care. I’ve captured this – plant based goodness and aromatherapy all wrapped up into beautiful skincare treatments.
Did you always see yourself working in your field? Always. I’m educated in both business and makeup artistry. My love for the creative was more dominant so I pursued the beauty industry right when I got out of school.
How did you end up in your current position? For me it was a natural progression. I’ve always had very sensitive skin and have had to cherry pick skincare products that wouldn’t cause a reaction. I worked for a company where I could use their makeup but not their skincare. Before the start-up of Pelle Beauty I had been researching & making my own products for personal use. When I freelanced, I found that there were clients of mine who were in the same boat as me, and it just started to catch on. That is when I thought about having a business. It took a long time before the business came to fruition as this is a very niche market and I’m extremely particular. I love doing this and with the website, it’s really amazing how many people I have met who have similar concerns.
What’s been the biggest highlight of your career to date? I have been very blessed with the progression of my company and the fine people I meet on a daily basis. I would have to say that always makes my day with all of the happy customers and feedback I receive. Helping people is what I do and to make someone delighted is a complete honour.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? I always remember that the word NO just stands for Next Opportunity. Everything happens for a reason.
Why do you enjoy what you do? Without question I love helping people. I love helping people feel fantastic. How we care and groom ourselves plays a huge role on how we feel.
