Zandra Azariah Cunningham is a 19-year-old entrepreneur from Buffalo, NY. Her fascination with entrepreneurship began when she was 9 years old. It was totally a result of her dad's refusal to buy her beloved lip balm. His "NO" forced her to do the work and make her own. With the assistance of her family, her newfound appreciation for entrepreneurship, and focus, she started her business, Azariah’s Innocence, a few days shy of her 10th birthday.
Her first products lip balms, and whipped shea body butter were sold at local farmers’ markets in the summer of 2010. She started with lip balms and body butter because these were products that she frequently used herself. The problem was that most of the products she bought at the mall would leave her dry, itchy and unhappy. She made it her mission to make products that smelled good and kept her skin soft without irritating it. She wanted to give girls and women a natural alternative to all those commercial products with unhealthy ingredients. Today you have Zandra, a premier social good, plant-based skincare alternative for the educated + empowered girl on the move!
