Hi friends! My name is Claudia Yost. I am a first generation college student and self-made entrepreneur. I started my business back in 2019 with no experience on how to run a business, but only the entrepreneurial advice handed down to me by my mother and father. I was raised in Sacramento, California so my business roots were planted there. As of today, I have expanded all the way down to Southern California, where I am currently attending school and sharing my business in local craft fairs around the Los Angeles area.
When I was a teenager, like most others, I had an insecurity with my skin. My acne was so out of hand, I thought the only solution was to cake on makeup to conceal my breakouts. I didn't prioritize actually solving the issue to my skins flareups, let alone listening to my skin's needs. I had tried a number of different name-brand, store bought "skincare" products, but to no avail...I thought my skin had a vendetta against me! My skin would feel dry and cracked, or oily and out of control! Any product I tried would break me out, or cause flareups. I couldn't find a balance within my teenage budget.
It all changed when...
One Eid holiday, I decided to be creative with the gifts I wanted to make for my friends. I remember doing a gift basket for each of my closest friends, and inside I included some home-made sugar scrubs, lotions, bath bombs, and face masks with the recipes I had found. Needless to say, they loved it! That's when I decided to be more experimental, learning what formula's work, and what formula's don't...My skin dramatically improved, my breakouts minimal as I switched to natural alternatives on my skin. I knew if it had worked for my sensitive skin then it will work for others!
My business is my full-time job. I dedicate endless hours and sleepless nights to build this dream job of mine. It's my source of income, and what I love to do most. With any career, it has faced challenges...marketing stumps, inspiration pitfalls, and unsold product...but the love that I have providing my fellow customers with the confidence they deserve in their own skin makes the challenges worth it. Every craft fair event, every sale in-person and online is a milestone I am proud of. Ever since day 1, I have been the woman in charge of all marketing, product brainstorming, production, quality control, label designer, inventory keeper, web designer, review analyst, media manager, product photographer & editor, event coordinator, & so much more behind the scenes. So far, we have been in a few local storefronts and newspaper articles, and soon we hope to be worldwide!
