When it comes to the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) women only make up for about a quarter of the workers within the field. Despite the fact that the industry is growing rapidly, it's only in the last few years that women have been more actively pursuing and being recognized for advancements in STEM.
I had a chance to chat all things STEM with Alison Crumblehulme, co-founder and president, and Jessica Kizovski, co-founder and lead formulator at Veriphy. Veriphy is a natural skincare line featuring a superstar ingredient, Photoglycogen. Photoglycogen is a 100% plant-based form of glycogen that boosts the skin’s natural ability to produce elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid for optimal hydration and a youthful, healthy glow.
Veriphy also tackles the lack of women in STEM head on with their scholarship, "The Veriphy Skincare Award for Women in STEM" to encourage women to pursue STEM careers where it is awarded each fall to a young woman at the University of Guelph.
AND the brand is Canadian!

I am so behind on beauty post because I have been regaling y'all with year, decade and unemployment updates BUT I am trying to make more of an effort to post personal, beauty, and other topics better evenly and try not to heavy one topic over another.
So that being said, my Jiyubox for winter!
The theme for this box us staying hydrated and de-stressing. Please know that this box was gifted to me but all thoughts and opinions are my own! I am also under no obligation to post in exchange for product but I have always loved to share natural beauty brands.
OH HI THERE!
Vicki feels kind of ridiculous talking about herself in the third person as if she isn't the one writing this.
She already feels weird when people call her an influencer, please don't make her write her own bio too.
Sponsored posts or gifted items will always be noted. Some posts contain affiliate links but I always disclose when they do. This means that I receive a small commission if you purchase a product I've linked to.
All opinions are 100% my own which should be pretty obvious because I swear a fuckload. Brands love it. Probably. I've only ever gotten one cease and desist letter but it was fake anyways.
Also LOL about me disclosing about sponsored posts. At the time of me writing this little blurb I haven't done a single sponsored blog post and if anything this blog costs me my own sweet coin because I'm always buying my own products to review. Shout out to the first brand who wants to pay me for a review. Just not a fitness tea please.
Fuck those companies.
