What is the future of the beauty industry?

Hopefully one that gives people the transparency about what is in them, so people can choose what they put in and on their bodies.

Stop animal testing completely. Cough China Cough.

Helping people feel good.

What are your biggest hopes for IN?

Hopefully there is a sheet mask in the works. That would be bomb.
