Tell us about yourself
Agne (Myself) – clinical herbalist and homeopath, is the wisdom behind L'AVES Skin Riches. I synthesize over 15 years of my orthodox medical knowledge, the extraordinary yet complex world of green chemistry, and my innate passion for alchemy in each formulation. I am an expert in natural and organic skincare formulation who knows which natural oil to use exactly for your specific skin's characteristics. I am a former consultant with several experiences in the cosmetic industry.
How it all started… I have always had a dream of making a positive impact on people and the environment. I decided to create a cosmetics line that is recyclable and only uses natural and organic products, which is a much better alternative and a cleaner way to take care of your skin. I created organic, simple, and customised beauty solutions perfect for all skin types.
"My philosophy - To make transparency and responsibility the new standards for the beauty industry. Years of research, scientific knowledge, and love for nature make L'AVES one of a kind, with products that work on and with your skin for visible, lasting results."
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Having my own Beauty Brand.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I have loved being an entrepreneur, but it hasn't always been easy. The most difficult part was 2-3 years in before we had gained brand traction. It takes a lot longer than you think to build a brand, and it is important not to give up!!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Patience and never give up. House was not built in one day same as any business.
