Read on to find out how Darling Jane started, What Lynne’s typical day looks like and what her hopes and dreams are for her products!
1// How did your business begin? When / where / how did it all start?
Darling Jane was established in June of 2015 and the whole idea behind Darling Jane was to create affordable natural skincare to ensure that anyone can afford to take care of their skin without having to spend a fortune.
2// Why do you do what you do?
I believe that skincare should not be a luxury and that is why I created a line of affordable products that anyone can buy to ensure that they can take care of their skin. After all the skin is the largest organ and absorbs almost everything you put on it, so using natural skincare products is very important.
3// When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?!
I grew up in a very artistic household and wanted to be a fashion designer from a young age, but ended up choosing a different path when the time came to study.
4// What are your hopes and dreams for your products?
I would love to have Darling Jane in a few stores and reach as many customers as possible. The main thing is just to keep providing products that enhance the skin.
5// What is your favourite product from your line?
The Peppermint Face Scrub is my favourite product. It does wonders for your skin.
6// Why should our customers buy your products?
We choose to only use natural and high quality ingredients in our products, because we believe that it’s very important to know exactly what you’re putting on your skin and we have formulated our products in such a way to nourish & enhance your skin.
Using our products will give you smooth, hydrated and healthy skin at an affordable price.
7// What does your typical day look like?
A typical day is filled with the aroma of all the products that I make. My day starts with creating orders, booking them for the courier and then catching up on admin and emails.
8// What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learnt so far in your business journey?
Hard work really pays off. Owing your own business means late nights and no rest, but it is really worth it in the end. It is also amazing to be able to provide people with products that make a difference with their skin.
