EP10 | Natasha Dauncey: How to Start a Skincare Business
If you're interested on skincare and what it takes to run a skincare business, Natasha Dauncey shares first hand experience of what it takes! In this episode, we track Natasha's eclectic career, share some great career tips and discuss everything you could want to know about skincare. Make sure to check out Natasha's company at apothaka.com! Natasha Dauncey, is founder of Apothaka®, a multi award-winning UK-based indie skincare brand. Before launching the brand in 2016 (at the age of 40), she had tried her hand at a variety of jobs across different industries before settling on a long career in healthcare/pharmaceutical market research, which gave her a deep understanding of health / illness, wellbeing and clinical research. Coupled with training in cosmetic formulation and a level 4 CIBTAC in advanced skin science, Natasha offers a much more rounded and realistic perspective on skincare and skin health. Natasha is passionate about creating unique and thoughtful formulations which support a healthy skin barrier, through a "less is more" approach to skincare.

Ever wanted to know what it takes to do a PhD? In this episode, we go international talking with Daniel Stumpf in Germany. Daniel talks to us about his almost 10 year academic career and the lessons he's learnt along the way. A lot the advice he shares is super applicable across the board so I'd definitely recommend a listen! Daniel studied technical Biology at the Technical University in Darmstadt/Germany from 2012 until 2017 and started a PhD afterwards in a big Science Research Institute in Göttingen/Germany. During his time in academia, he got involved in several science-based projects and experienced both sides of the coin of becoming a scientist: from meeting interesting and passionate people from all over the world over realizing that grades (only) kind of matter to developing resilience skills to manage one‘s own (high) expectations.
