Meet Jessica Schmitzberger of Modeun in Arts District

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Schmitzberger.

Modeun started out of a long-standing love for beauty and apothecary. Long friends Jessica Schmitzberger and Kayla Tange shared a realization that there weren’t any products that fit their exact aesthetics, ingredient preferences, and scent notes at the same time. Jessica, being an architect, chose only product lines that visually suited her minimalist, modern style. While there are a number of beauty lines out there that fill this need, there were far few that removed gender from this; appealing to either more masculine or feminine users. That is when both partners decided to join together and visualize a lifestyle company that could be for everyone. Through years of study, and in reaching back into history of their cultural roots. Modeun: “All” was born.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It was not an easy task. As being creatives in art and architecture, with a keen eye for details, sources, and deeper meaning, Modeun took years of testing and trials. One of the main components of the product line, the idea of utilizing CBD in beauty products, was not as widespread as It is currently today. That said, despite seeing the boom in CBD beauty did not deter Modeun to rush launching. We wanted to get everything right and believe the product will speak for itself.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Modeun – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Modeun aims to be a community of collaboration between creatives based in Los Angeles and hopefully beyond. Launching our initial inclusive beauty and apothecary line, we hope to utilize Modeun as a launching pad for other gender-neutral lifestyle products and are currently working on unisex fashion and accessories, as well as expanding into skincare. It’s not just about selling the products, we want to hear from the community and learn what’s important in the things that people want to use. Creating open dialogue will help to tweak and evolve our standards to fit the user’s needs and lifestyle. For that reason, everything is produced locally and in small batches.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Modeun hopes that in setting a bar of consciousness, not only in the ingredients and materials people use on a daily basis, but opening dialogue about important issues, artistic, cultural, and environmentally, we hope to be a sounding board for those who want to speak out and share in our community.
