ep. 46: Jen Kite
Children’s store owner Jen Kite talks about the best natural deodorant, her tips for turning your shower into a spa using essential oils, and the beauty tool you should be buying at the grocery store
Our guest this week is Jen Kite, the owner of Scout, an online children’s shop that offers a thoughtfully selected collection of responsibly-made clothing, gifts, accessories, and nursery decor. In this interview, Jen told us about why she decided to open a children’s store, and her decision to forgo a brick-and-mortar location in favor of an online shop. Jen has a background working in both the fashion and the solar energy industries (talk about multi-talented!), and her varied background informed her decision to focus on stocking up-and-coming brands and designers who use sustainable production methods.
Jen’s commitment to independent brands with a focus on sustainability extends to her simple and effective beauty routine. Jen is not only an entrepreneur, but a mother of two young girls, so her routine needs to be easy and quick. In this episode, Jen told me about her favorite cleansing oil, the tea she uses to unwind, and the tool she uses to make herself look more awake (without makeup!). Jen and Jesse also bonded over their mutual obsession with Kroger’s cotton rounds.
