In this episode of Gritty Pretty Radio, Danielle Gay (beauty director & executive editor) and Rose Garnett (beauty writer) sit down with the founder of skincare brand Votary, Arabella Preston. Launching her brand in 2015, the Londoner's products were born out of her own kitchen, where she would concoct mixtures of essential and plant oils to create the nourishing products she couldn't seem to find anywhere else. Six years on and Votary is renowned for its luxurious, vegan formulas that come housed in sustainable packaging. From taking the leap of faith to start her own business to the importance of sustainability and the makeup tips (and products) she thinks everyone should know about, the trio chatted about everything and anything during this episode.
