In our next Black Women Founders series, we spoke with Jamika Martin, founder of ROSEN Skincare (the next generation of acne care) to talk about her inspiration behind ROSEN skincare. Jamika shares one tip of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs and 3 brands you should know about. Read more below!
Q: A short blurb on what inspired you to start your business?
I founded ROSEN after years of dealing with difficult skin. Tons of treatments, medications, and appointments later, I was in college and found that the mass acne care aisle had the exact same products I had been shopping in 6th grade. With ROSEN, our goal is to create the next generation of mass acne care, making the category a cleaner, more enjoyable place to shop!
Q: What’s one major tip or piece of advice you would give someone in their first year of business?
Focus! You need to focus in all areas of your business. Product, who you serve, how you market, who you partner with, everything. Don’t be everything and doing all the things, you won’t progress as fast.
Q: Tell us about ROSEN Skincare?
At ROSEN, we're working to create the next generation of mass acne care.
