Bad On Paper

Apr 21, 2021

In today’s episode we are joined by Francesco Clark, the founder of the clean beauty brand Clark’s Botanicals. Francesco shares the origin story of Clark’s Botanicals: When he suffered a devastating spinal cord injury, he found himself paralyzed. One unexpected side effect of his paralysis was that his body could no longer sweat… and as a result, his skin changed dramatically. Together with his father (a doctor trained in homeopathy), they created Clark’s Botanicals. Francesco explains the chemistry behind their active ingredient the Jasmine Catalyst Complex and chats about favorite products. He also also shares how he started the company, sold it, and bought it back. Francesco and his brand are pretty much the definition of resilience in our eyes, we hope you enjoy hearing from him as much as we did!
