Stephanie Kim founded Moonlit Skincare along with her best friend. After eighteen months of hard work, they landed their products in Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters holiday packs. Moonlit was already focused on sleep wellness when the pandemic hit. With people feeling more stress and not getting restful sleep, their products are more relevant than ever. When major retailers ran out of hand sanitizer, Moonlit quickly contacted its partners and produced shareable packs of travel sized sanitizer. Stephanie thought she would spend her career in corporate beauty, but is now thriving as an entrepreneur.
