Veronique Lee, once a partner at revolutionary sustainable beauty and fashion retailer Modavanti, brings over 15 years of sustainability and wellness expertise to her CandaScent Labs venture. In this episode, Veronique shares the emerging science-based necessity for supporting Olfactory Wellness and her passion for sustainability through the lens of her Economics and Political Science education. CandaScent Labs is a health and wellness aroma brand with a collection of products built to promote whole-body wellness through the olfactory system.
Later in her career, while working with chemists on cannabis research and product development, Véronique learned more about cannabinoids and terpenes. She became interested in exploring the synergy of plant compounds, particularly beta-caryophyllene, and its applications towards wellness. This motivated her to create healthier, synthetic-free aroma products supported by terpene science, removing the elusive "fragrance" ingredient. Thus, CandaScent Labs was born. "Canda", from the Latin, means candid, pure, clean, transparent, kind – all hallmarks of the brand's DNA. CSL's formulations harness the synergetic power of botanical ingredients beyond Beta-Caryophyllene, to elevate your mood, reduce your stress, boost your brain, and fortify your immunity with ingredients that possess anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Véronique graduated from Stanford University with a BA in Economics and Political Science and has served as a board member of Friends Without A Border and an Advisory Board Member of the Fashion Institute of Technology. In addition to her roles in beauty and fashion, Véronique also brings experience working for one of the largest grain merchandising companies in the world, where she saw how the desire for efficiency and profitability was transforming how our food was made, sourced, processed and marketed. These processes were not healthy for our planet or our health. When she experienced the same thing happening in fashion, she began bringing artisan and eco-friendly brands to market.
