We had the good fortune of connecting with Lateria & Aubri Young and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lateria & Aubri, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My inspiration stemmed from my 8 year old daughter Aubri Jaiel. I wouldn’t be the leader I am today if it wasn’t for her…She has provided me with so much, she is leader, a achiever, a Explorer and has so many other beautiful positive qualities…it is only right to honor her in such a beautiful light…(I feel that she has given me so much, that it is only right to build a legacy for her and those that come after her.) When we launched our brand in February 2019 we knew we wanted to offer luxurious botanical products that not only helps illuminate your skin but also is beneficial to your health. (What you use on the outside of your body absorbs into your body) This is why we focus on educating…Aubri and I believe it is EXTREMELY important to know what you’re using on your body and why you’re using specific ingredients. SO many brands focus on selling products that they don’t take the time to truly explain the benefits of using toxin free products and properly cleansing your skin. We want each of our clients to feel that they are a leader, a explorer and a visionary…the way that Aubri J. makes me feel.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Aubri Jaiel focuses on the skin, we believe that the skin is the foundation for your foundation (LITERALLY!) if your skin isn’t right, your makeup won’t be right. I’ve always been an artist! On top of owning a luxurious botanical skincare brand I am also a makeup artist. Teaching others to enhance their beauty rather then transform themselves.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Honestly, I’m new to Dallas! So I don’t know much! Haha! Moved here because I wanted better opportunities for my family and researched and found that Dallas is one of the best places for entrepreneurship! What better place to call home?

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would love to shout out my amazing husband! He’s one of my biggest supporters! Constantly encouraging me to give my all! Couldn’t do this without my right hand man! Also my mother and Grandmother who are the epitome of strength and confidence. Which has allowed me to be an example to my Aubri J. My 3 best friends! For always standing by my side providing constant support! And last but not least my uncle, he’s literally one of the coolest people that I know and to hear him constantly tell me how proud he is of me (means A TON!) He’s so courageous, and adventurous…I admire him for simply being him! I love them all!! Couldn’t do this without them!
