GET TO KNOW THE BRAND: Vo Beauty
Founder and Holistic Facialist: Diana Vo
Vo beauty is an all-natural artisanal skincare brand from Toronto, Canada. Formulated and hand-crafted by Diana Vo.
"I enjoy listening to my customers needs and creating innovative products to protect and nourish their skin."
Vo Beauty was founded because:Realizing that many of my clients used a variety of products that did not produced the results they were expected I decided to take matters into my own hands. Using all natural, gentle and hydrating ingredients, I created my first treatment product for my clients to nourish and protect their skin’s moisture barrier. What began as a treatment product for my clients turned into a small business in 2016.
What are you most passionate about?
I know this sounds so repetitive but everything about the skincare industry. I'm constantly researching and enrolling in in classes all over the world to learn new techniques and how to perfect my craft.
What it means to be women in business in 2021?
To me, being a woman means a lot of different things. Being a woman means being able to be powerful and assertive, yet kind at the same time. It means being compassionate and vulnerable towards those we love in our lives without feeling weak for doing so. It means striving for our goals even in the face of the adversity we may encounter along the way.
We have a voice in society to speak about our passions without feeling small or looked down upon, we have sisters to support us and most importantly, we can stand for what we believe in.
What celebrity, brand or cause would you collaborate with and why?
I would like to collaborate with Josie Maran. Her collection of skincare and bodycare products always resonated with me. Her products are all natural, sustainable and most importantly, the Argan oil she sources helps young girls living in Morocco to have better education and supplies with all the essentials such as pads. All her products are natural and I'd love to create a shaving cream with her using her Argan oil and 20% of all our sales would go towards a charity that focuses on helping women and children.
