Our first webinar took place on May 29th, 2020.
Our founding members Khandiz, Sjaniel, Lou and Tahira took the opportunity to introduce themselves and the mission of CBU. We shared our journeys into conscious beauty, and how we adapted our practices and wider life philosophies to our work and eventually came together to create this platform. We also shared our vision for CBU going forward, which is to create a supportive community of beauty professionals seeking to make their work more sustainable by sharing information, education and experience. We discussed the 4 pillars that govern us: Education, Sustainability, Ethics + Health + Wellbeing.  In the last part of the webinar we were able to answer questions from participants and also got some feedback as to how we can bring the CBU vision to life while meeting the needs of our future members.
