Nationwide Press Release — Zandra Cunningham, the 18-year old founder of Zandra, an award-winning plant-based artisan skincare product range for teenage skin, has started a nationwide launch of her new brand of women’s face care products called ‘Zandra 18’. The launch event will take place at the teen CEO’s official graduation and community award’s night on Saturday, July 7 in Buffalo, New York.
The launch into women’s face care marks an important step for the once all teen brand. Zandra 18 represents a fresh take on the brand’s ‘No icky stuff!’ natural plant-based philosophy by starting with a Make-up Remover complete with her signature fresh scent and quality blends. Perfect for all skin-types, the make-up remover will introduce new customers to an effective cosmetic staple that delivers deeply cleansed skin and natural nourishment. The full range, which will be made available in stores across the USA by Fall 2018, will include a Herbal Clay Clarifying Bar, Toner for skin repair and normalizing the skin after cleansing, a Scrub Mask for an exfoliating and smoothing facial detox, and a light moisturizing Finishing Oil that works perfectly under make-up. All products are made from organic and natural ingredients and never tested on animals.
Combining her own 18th birthday celebration with the product launch, teen CEO Zandra Cunningham said, “I am so happy to launch our new face care line! we have created fantastic products for all young women who are challenged by new skincare demands as they also shift from teen to adulthood. Face care is so important and what makes Zandra so unique is our clean and effective formulas, amazing scents, and great quality. The new line marks the start of a brand review and partnership with the Sephora mentorship team so I’m really excited about this nationwide launch!”
Started when she was just 9-years old, Zandra Cunningham handcrafted her own skincare as a result of her dad’s refusal to buy her beloved lip balm. With the assistance of her family, she started her business a few days shy of her 10th birthday. Today at 18 years of age, Cunningham operates her skincare and beauty line from Buffalo, NY where she manufactures 40 natural skincare products as an alternative to commercial products with icky unhealthy ingredients. Her popular teen skincare range will still be available at Walmart, Paper Mart and other retailers in 200 stores across the nation.

This is the only lip balm that doesn’t dry/flake my lips; I was bummed when Amazon seemed to stop carrying all the flavors—thrilled to see she has her own website. I just wish we could customize the big balm kit, as I don’t care for the lemon/tea tree scent. I just hope it’s reformatted, because it has a faint fishy flavor to me.
I have been looking for a lip scrub as good as the Mary-Kay one I used years ago. I have very dry skin and lips,I also partake in canibus so my lips needed love. This scrub is amazing. It's an actual scrub. It doesn't cut your lips. I felt the difference instantly! I got in car with no chap stick on and my mother asked what I used on my lips. It's the best lip scrub ever!
