Daisy Jing is the Founder and CEO of Banish, a natural skincare line targeted in treating acne scars. Daisy suffered acne all of her life, and traditionally prescribed treatments didn’t work for her. She studied pre-med and dermatology at Duke University and while there, she started her YouTube channel reviewing skincare products. Through her vulnerability and story of her skincare journey, the YouTube channel garnered over 70 million views. She started formulating her own products to help her skin, and before long, her audience wanted to buy whatever it was she was using. And so Banish was born.
Today, Banish is a multimillion-dollar business and its products are sold all over the world. Daisy is a TEDx speaker, Inc. 500 entrepreneur, Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur, and most importantly, mom to a daughter and a Labradoodle. In her free time, Daisy loves fitness and teaches lagree pilates.
Despite all the pressure women face as entrepreneurs, business leaders, and mothers, it’s very important for them to be authentic and show up as their best selves. This may not be easy, but from experience, Daisy Jing knows just how valuable it is.
While struggling to find a solution for her acne, Daisy created a YouTube channel where she shared her journey and struggles. She did this honestly and authentically and ended up amassing a big audience that was going through the same problems. When she started creating her own products to treat her acne, this audience asked for the products, eventually leading to the launch of Daisy’s skincare brand.
