People, Planet, Purpose, Profit: Business as a Force for Good
Co-Founder and Co-CEO
Have you ever wondered what’s in that shower gel you use every morning? Or what’s so special about essential oils? Or how in the world to create a business that’s committed to doing good in addition to doing well?
Susan Griffin-Black will join Wednesday Morning Dialogue on June 12 to tell us all about EO Products, the natural body care product line she created with her partner 23 years ago.
Ms. Griffin-Black is the co-founder and co-CEO of EO Products, the California-based parent company of two leading personal care brands: EO® and Everyone for Every Body™. For nearly 25 years Susan has been a pioneer of the personal care industry, and has built a successful, exemplary company rooted in responsible business practices. She is an expert on safe, healthy personal care products and essential oils. In addition to her leadership in EO Products, she is involved with numerous advisory boards including Turning Green and Bay Cycle Project.
Founded in Potrero Hill (yes, in a garage) and then moved to Marin, EO Products now formulates, manufactures and markets natural and organic bath, skin and hair products right here in San Rafael in a 40,000 square-foot space that once was a Lucasfilm studio. The company’s success is very much informed by Susan’s commitment to people, the planet, a purpose – and profits. All of EO’s products are cruelty-free, as well as synthetic-, GMO- and gluten-free. And her business practices are consciously designed to lessen the environmental load both for the planet and for our bodies.
Please join us on June 12 to hear this inspiring entrepreneur discuss her successful business, her forward-thinking philosophy on female leadership, and her advice to “get really good at not going out of business.”
