My name is Hyba and I am 14 years old. I grew up in Quebec, Canada and lived there 11 years before moving to Georgia, USA in 2017. I love to paint, play the flute and hang out with my friends. My favorite movie or book series is Harry Potter. In the future, I want to become a veterinarian along with continuing this wonderful business!
How did I start?
I started making my own cosmetics at home because of social media. There was a post on Snapchat most girls in my grade shared, which mentioned that there are ingredients from whale in lip gloss. And some others added that they kill whales just to get that one ingredient, which apparently makes the lip gloss last longer on your lips. I was completely disgusted. I don’t know whether it is true or not, (I mean, It’s social media, what do you expect?) but it made me think twice about all the chemicals and ingredients I can’t even pronounce the lip glosses and other cosmetics I usually buy are made from. The worst thing is that not only do I put them on my lips, but sometimes I accidentally swallow a little bit of it…
I figured out that the only way a lip gloss can gain my trust is by making my own; natural and simple, because some companies claim their products are 100% natural, but even 99.9 rounds up to a 100; and every hundredth of a percent counts, and you can trust my products as much as I do!
