Featured Brand Inspiration: Cici Glam
Written by: Chereen
1. You have a beautiful brand that is very inspiring, so there has to be a good source of inspiration that gives you the drive you need to achieve your goals. Where does your inspiration come from?
Thank you so much for the compliments. Our inspiration comes from the beauty and effectiveness in simplicity. Simplicity in general and simplicity in all of the natural ‘everyday’ beauty around us.
We believe in the beauty, clarity and excellence in simplicity and we see everyday that the solutions to the most important and seemingly complex issues can be, and are actually quite simple.
2. What motivated you to create your brand?
Cici Glam was created to prove that everyone can be confident and feel beautiful in their own skin and body without using a lot of products and doing a lot. Cici Glam’s goal is to create a collection of very simple, natural and the most effective products that enhances beauty, health and confidence without the side effects of harsh chemicals.
3. What influenced you to become a natural beauty solution?
There are many side effects of harsh chemicals on our skin, and most of them are actually unpopular and even unknown. When researching the top beauty solutions (from skincare to makeup products) out there, we found out that MOST of the most effective and popular ones had all sorts of harsh chemicals on their ingredient list. Most of these ingredients are synthetic chemicals that are disrupt endocrine and irritate skin.
We feel there are more harsh chemicals in cosmetic and personal-care products than in any other industry in the world! There are hundreds of chemicals in our everyday products, gradually and consistently being absorbed into our bodies. In the current highly unregulated cosmetic industry, companies have the liberty to use ingredients without government review or approval. The only approvals I currently know of are for color additives and ingredients classified as over-the-counter drugs.
4. What inspired you as a child? Do you feel like the inner child within you continues to inspire you to accomplish your goals?
It has been quite evident in all my life ventures and that is the same thing we are trying to do with Cici Glam Natural Beauty.
5. What motivates you to keep going in the morning?
This answer follows from the previous question. The possibility of creating something wonderful, to the benefit of mankind and that would be available and would inspiringly continue way after we are gone. In this case, the everyday possibility of bringing the wow factor and excitement to someone’s life by making them feel confident and beautiful in their own skin.
6. What is your motto?
Creating 100% Simple, Natural and Effective Health & Beauty Solutions
7. Do you have any routines that help you stay inspired?
Yes, not exactly a routine but a mindset. Always consistently get the small wins. These small wins
are what makes up the very big, grand goal we want to achieve.
8. What advice would you have for anyone who is struggling to find their inner inspiration?
We do not have elastic time to live so whatever you find yourself doing, make sure you’re doing it as best as you can!
9. Is there anything else you would like to add? Your words are gems and are highly appreciated.
Oh, Actually the words of a wonderful man, Steve Jobs.
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”
Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement, June 12 2005
