Clean beauty retailer Credo Beauty is hosting its annual clean beauty business workshop in an effort to provide Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) brand founders with the support and development they need to be successful within the clean beauty industry.

And this year’s effort looks to be the largest.

The 2022 Credo for Change program was open to all beauty brand founders, regardless of their stage of growth, a big switch from prior year programs. More than 120 business owners have registered, making it the largest cohort of BIPOC founders to ever attend an incubator program.

Since the workshop started in 2020, 27 brands have graduated and added to Credo Beauty’s shelves, including Common Heir, Nopalera, and 54 Thrones.

In a company press release, Cary Lin, Co-Founder and CEO of Common Heir, stated, “We were part of the first Credo for Change and as a young brand, it was the best decision we ever made. The best part of the program was being part of the overall community.”

The program features courses including Clean Beauty + Formulation, Legal and Trademarks 101, Working Capital, How to Craft Your Brand & Storytelling, Marketing/Digital Blueprint, and Business Strategy. The workshop counts Susan Kim, CEO of Kopari Beauty, and Ju Rhyu, CEO of Hero Cosmetics among its list of beauty brand leaders and entrepreneurs.

Registration for the 2022 Credo for Change program closed July 18, 11:59 PM PST.
