Cut Le Crap

Kingston based natural skincare business Cut Le Crap’s founder Maya Christensen talks to us about her business

Maya tell us about your business cut.le.crap. and the origins behind it?
The idea of creating cut.le.crap. came just over a year ago when we (me, my husband and son) left Australia to come back to London. The green beauty industry is booming over there. I saw an opportunity to create something unique.

What makes your products unique?
The name! It is a fun brand, with a younger feel and look and a cheeky tone of voice that is not overpriced.  Plus, our packaging is sustainable and  products cruelty free.

What is your background and experience?
I like challenges and learning new skills. I have worked as a sales rep in the wine industry before becoming a French teacher in secondary school. And here I am today working full time for cut.le.crap. I love it.

What do you enjoy most about what you do?
Doing what I love 24/7. I switched to a toxin-free lifestyle 3 years ago. I love being in control of what goes on my skin. Offering a range of products that is safe to use but also eco-friendly is something that I am very proud of.

What do you have planned for the future of the business?
We are always looking at growing our range. We want to create a solid range and eliminate packaging.
