4. Cake Beauty
The brand’s founder, Heather Reier, always loved beauty but never planned to work in the industry until she found a void in the market: cute, girly products that were also safe, natural, and did not test on animals. She launched Cake Beauty, an indulgent collection of vegan and cruelty-free hair and body products, 15 years ago in her kitchen and has grown the business tremendously since.

5. Sara Happ
After reading “exfoliate lips with a wet washcloth or toothbrush” for the twentieth time, and knowing that she had a scrub for every part of her body but not her lips, Sara Happ decided she’d just have to make it herself. Now, trademarked as The Lip Expert, Sara continues to push boundaries and formulate new lip products that do not exist.
