In the Biz: Chivas Skincare

Lauren Johanson is the co-founder of Chivas Skincare – a free-trade skin care line that’s made from goat’s milk!  This company is the brainchild of Lauren + her mom + goat milk soap. Chivas is the Spanish word for… Goat!

As a part of our entreprenuership class at FiDM, we always have guestspeaker that are inspiring – sometimes with the simplest stories. Lauren’s mom made these soaps and sent it to her when she was in college as a part of a care package. She and her friends loved it and soon after a few years of globetrotting, Lauren and her mom launched this business.

Lauren says, when you are a business owner, you think you are the authority on what is ‘cool’ and what is ‘in’. All because YOU like it, it doesnt mean it will be a best seller. 

Her advice: Sell what sells!

You can get Chivas Skincare at Fred Segal, online and at various giftshops and tradeshows.
