How do principles like sustainability and inclusivity drive product innovation, marketing and retail distribution? During "Conscious Beauty Upstarts," a panel discussion during the forthcoming Beauty Accelerate Virtual event, leaders from Beekman 1802 and Common Heir will outline how today's new crop of mindful brands are driving success. Registration is now open.

Beekman 1802 was Ulta Beauty's first certified microbiome-friendly brand and launched a high-profile Pride collection in May 2021.

Plastic-free Common Heir spawned from Credo Beauty's Credo for Change Mentorship Program in 2020. More recently, the brand began to retail in Credo online and in-store across the United States.

Our featured panelists for this session are: Brad Farrell, CMO of Beekman 1802, and Cary Lin and Angela Ubias, co-founders of Common Heir.
