Interview: How A Sustainable Beauty Brand Upcycles Fruit Waste
Terence Chung, scientist and founder of Fruu, discusses repurposing food waste to make sustainable, organic beauty products accessible to younger consumers
Today's consumers are conscious of not only what's in their beauty products, but also how they were produced. Natural and organic alone do not necessarily mean sustainably made, and there is a growing demand for environmentally-friendly products.
As part of a podcast on clean beauty, PSFK founder and editor-in-chief Piers Fawkes sat down with scientist, university professor and entrepreneur Terence Chung to discuss what motivated him to start his natural cosmetics line, Fruu, aimed at providing young people with affordable and sustainable products made largely from fruit by-products.
