Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Pillors.
Hi Ashley, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
The Glass collections was created in the year 2018, while I resided on the Hawaiian island of Maui. I’ve always had sensitive skin with many options to choose from with no cure for my acne-prone skin. After trying almost every store-bought product, there were still no results for my sensitive skin, which lead me to researching and testing my own hand-crafted products. The glass collections began with body butters, body scrubs and face masks, with much more researching and testing, we soon began to expand our skincare products creating an entire skincare routine suitable for all skin types, as well as catering to men and women with sensitive skin. Our handcrafted skincare routine consists of only four simple steps anyone can incorporate into their busy day-to-day lives; Mask, exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize. Each product is made up of multiple raw ingredients from the earth without any harsh added chemicals. Our products are affordable and easy to use, helping our customers achieve clear and brighter skin the natural way. Our company does shipping from our online store anywhere in the United States, we also sell our products in person at Rancho Cucamonga’s outdoor mall Victoria Gardens every Friday. We look forward to expanding and helping our customers achieve the beautiful skin and the confidence we all deserve.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
When creating products from scratch, there has always been many obstacles. Making sure each ingredient works well with one another, testing ingredients from different companies. A successful and effective product comes from trial and error. Each product is carefully tested for 2 months before being released to our website for our customers. Creating skincare products is chemistry, you can’t just match one ingredient with another. Each ingredient has a different reaction so carefully mixing ingredients has been well studied and tested throughout our years of being in business. Balancing everyday life with running a small business can sometimes become a challenge, but worth the work and diligence. Helping people all over gain their confidence in their skin is always worth the challenges. Running a small business will never be just a smooth road there will always be challenges and struggles along the way, challenges create growth and each struggle is always a great learning experience.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
Currently, I am a full-time business owner and mother to two beautiful boys. What sets me apart from others is my determination for success and never giving up. I created my business not for monetary gain but to see and hear the joyful testimonies from my customers about how my products helped with their various skin problems. I specialize in customer service being able to listen, learn and help. I am most proud of all of the challenges and changes I’ve surpassed over the years of being in business, I don’t have a full team to help me in each aspect of my business which includes; marketing, creating, packaging, shipping, restocking to name a few. My passion for helping others is what keeps me going each day, knowing there are people who depend on my products to help with many arising skin problems they may face.
So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
What matters the most to me is keeping God the forefront of my business. Without God, I would not have been inspired with so much creativity, positivity and drive. I look forward to inspiring others especially young women who may feel lost and don’t know where to begin in this large world we live in today. I want to show people that it is possible to succeed with your own business and to never give up no matter what hardships they may face. Every loss is a lesson and not a setback.
