While most industries are dominated by men in suits when it comes to leadership positions, we are thrilled to be part of the clean beauty movement – an industry handily dominated by strong, smart, amazing and dare we say, badass women…just like the products they’ve created and we are loving. In fact, we are beaming and proud to report that 90% of the brands at Credo are led by women founders or CEOs. 90%. It’s a good number.
So, in January, we at Credo decided this was worth an epic celebration and we hosted our first annual Clean Beauty Summit hosting 70 founders from all over the globe right here in San Francisco.
With so many of our lovely ladies in one place, we thought it was a great time to shoot an inspiring piece featuring our fabulous founders to officially launch our Women’s Campaign. The result? Completely inspiring, super interesting, and totally fun.
We called upon our favorite dancer/director, Redha, who Credo collaborated with last spring to create a video about the lack of regulation in the beauty industry. The results were powerful and it brought an important issue right where it belonged… straight into the spotlight. Redha is known for his blend of video, dance, and social justice messaging to “wake us up” or look at something in a new light.
So we asked our founders and CEOs to check their inhibitions at the door and join in to help create Redha’s masterpiece and more importantly, share his (and our) message.
Meet the Women on Top- our Clean Beauty Founders & CEOs. We believe in beauty brands led by women, do you?
Thank you to all of them. And thanks for the laughs.
