Janet Hayward



Ep 2 - Former Editor and Ipsum Skin Founder Janet Hayward on the Power of Plant-Based Skincare



In this episode I talk to Janet Hayward, the founder of Ipsum Skin. Janet shares her passion and dedication for sourcing the purest, most potent natural ingredients from around the world to create her high performance, certified organic skincare range.

The culmination of over 25 years learning and writing in beauty media about the best in beauty across the UK and Australia, provided Janet the opportunity to meet and interview cosmetic chemists, brand founders and botanists.

The experience informed Janet's idea for Ipsum, which she launched in 2019 at the age of 56. Inspiration that it is never too late to launch your own successful brand.

Together we unpack her definition of clean, Janet shares her inspiring brand story, and we cover the latest innovations in the green beauty industry — with a few product recommendations thrown in, of course.
