Let’s talk fur. Not the mink coat kind of fur. It’s high time that pubic hair gets the attention it deserves. CEO Laura Schubert co-founded Fur as a force for good in the world by creating effective, clean products, and challenging outdated societal views that breed unnecessary shame and stigma around our bodies. The company offers products that hydrate skin, soften hair, and eradicate ingrowns from head to toe. Its facial-grade, vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic ingredients are dermatologically and gynaecologically tested, and the products are now in big retailers like Ulta Beauty, Nordstrom, and Macy’s. Laura joins Socialfly Co-founder Courtney Spritzer for a conversation about her journey to success and building her company from the ground up, including: why hustle was the most important ingredient for Laura in building Fur; why Laura had to find cosmetic chemists by Googling them; what the biggest challenge during year 1 had to do with finding rhythm; the battles with digital censorship; the journey from serious HR and management consultant to pubic hair expert; the importance of discipline and strategy in launching new products; the marriage-like partnership of working with your best friend, and the art of disagreeing productively; the moment that packing boxes on the floor while being pregnant made Laura and her cofounder make a big change in their business; how moms might just make better delegators and managers; and why someone always has to cry! Plus, a surprise!
