According to the company, co-founder and CEO Marla Beck is somewhat of an expert in the category, and launched her good-for-you cosmetics brand Lune+Aster after seeing a white space in cosmetics. She noticed that, despite the proliferation of fitness studios, juice bars, vegan restaurants and eco-friendly clothing lines, there was a dearth of harsh chemical and preservative-free makeup on the market. Marla created Lune + Aster as a paraben and phthalate free line, packed with vitamins and made without animal testing, with many skus that are also gluten free and vegan.
