We’re blown away that founder and CEO Tara Foley took the time out of her evening to record with us, and share her entrepreneurial story.

Follain is an independent retailer that thinks about the clean beauty industry differently. The brand is built on founder Tara Foley’s passion for safe ingredients and desire to act as a platform for the niche makers that share her perspective in the non-toxic personal care movement. Follain vigorously vets brands based on the highest standards of performance and health to feature a passionately selected portfolio of skincare, hair care, and cosmetic products for their shoppers. 

Before Follain, Tara researched safe and sustainable skincare, apprenticing on an organic lavender farm in France, and with a private label skin care company in Maine. With degrees in public policy and business, Tara's vision, passion, and activism fuel Follain’s growth, and its mission of improving the health and lives of others. 

In this episode, we talk about Tara’s journey from working a job that she wasn’t fully passionate about, to diving headfirst into business school and winning a business proposal to open her retail storefront.
