Community Highlights: Meet Xen St Charles of Brash

Today we’d like to introduce you to Xen St Charles. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Our founder, Xen, was born into a family plagued by skin and respiratory woes. She grew into a motivated millennial on a mission to relieve her dry elbows and eczema that seemed to be irritated by every lotion and moisturizer that didn’t smell like a medicinal nightmare. Determined to eliminate the look and smell of social exile, Xen embarked on a journey to create the perfect texture and scent of whipped Shea goodness. While becoming somewhat of a self-taught chemist, her squad stumbled upon her creations and began making personalized requests and demanding that she share her treasures with the world. It was then that Xen realized, it was all too good to keep to herself and so…BRASH was birthed!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
To say that being an entrepreneur in these current times is a “smooth road” is to literally be a unicorn! BRASH has definitely been impacted by COVID restrictions, COVID affecting our founder’s health and the health of our staff, supply chain issues, having to pivot parts of the business, staffing issues and the impact of inflation on the cost of just about every part of the business! It has truly been a challenge and we are so thankful for our loyal customers and team!
