Pioneering The Organic Beauty Industry & Building A Resilient Brand With Karen Behnke, The Founder Of Juice Beauty
Today, I have the pleasure of sitting down with Karen Behnke, a beauty industry pioneer and the founder of Juice Beauty. Karen’s unwavering commitment to her passion for creating an organic and sustainable brand is the perfect example of success achieved through hard work, perseverance, and a whole lot of creativity. Juice Beauty, recognized by Forbes and Cosmopolitan as the original green beauty brand, has gained global recognition and is now available in major retailers like Ulta and Sephora.
