So, when I came across the Immortelle Beauty line a few years ago and followed the brand owner on twitter her bio read “I drive a manual truck in 5 inch heels.” Now, my parents made me learn to drive a stick shift – as in I didn’t drive an automatic until I had a license in hand. However, I could not do it in shoes. No joke, I would take my boots, flip flops, you name it, off to drive. So Kathryn’s bio set me some goals that I can proudly say I have managed to achieve!
So now, meet Kathryn Nurse, boss babe behind the Caribbean owned skin care line – Immortelle Beauty.
How did Immortelle Beauty come to be?
I trained as a Cosmetic Chemist at an R&D research lab in New Jersey. Immortelle Beauty came out of me wanting to come up with my own concepts and truly take ownership of the products I made throughout the entire development, marketing and sales process. I wanted everything to be mine and me to be the face of the products as well. So I decided to move home to Trinidad and start my little company.
