“Making skincare products has long been a side hustle for me, but since the pandemic, it’s become more of a main hustle. About a week after New York City entered lockdown, my job disappeared, and I and all my colleagues were furloughed without pay. The scale of everything we’re facing is so vast that it has been a comfort to me to retreat into my little world of potions and beakers.” - Jenna Sauers
