Breaking Beauty Podcast

Jan 29, 2020

Today we’re speaking to Bite Beauty founder and serial entrepreneur Susanne Langmuir. As a product development guru, Langmuir succeeded where others couldn’t, creating bright, poppy shades that could measure up to the M.A.C’s and the NARS’ of the world, in earth-friendly formulas and don’t forget the brand’s best-selling Agave Lip Mask that beauty editors stocked up on by the tube. 

In this episode, we’ll update you on how Bite Beauty’s parent company, Sephora-backed Kendo Beauty, is ushering in a new, all-vegan era following Susanne’s departure from the company over two years ago. Then, Susanne fills us in on her next, forward-thinking act: waterless beauty. You’ll meet the debut product, aN-hydra The Powder of Youth No. 1, a water-activated microbiome cleansing powder that harnesses rice powder and pomegranate enzymes to slough away dead skin cells without stripping away “good” bacteria. (Plus, we weigh in with our personal review!)

Find out what Susanne envisions a waterless beauty routine could look like in the not too distant future, and why ‘waterless’ is so key to shrinking our vanity footprint. But first, we’ll take you way back to before Bite Beauty even existed, to some of the inspiring entrepreneur’s first steps – and missteps –  into the wide world of beauty.
