The launch event will take place at the teen CEO’s official graduation and community award’s night on Saturday, July 7 in Buffalo, New York.

The launch into women's face care marks an important step for the once all teen brand. Zandra 18 represents a fresh take on the brand's 'No icky stuff!' natural plant-based philosophy by starting with a Make-up Remover complete with her signature fresh scent and quality blends. Perfect for all skin-types, the make-up remover will introduce new customers to an effective cosmetic staple that delivers deeply cleansed skin and natural nourishment.

The full range, which will be made available in stores across the USA by Fall 2018, will include a Herbal Clay Clarifying Bar, Toner for skin repair and normalizing the skin after cleansing, a Scrub Mask for an exfoliating and smoothing facial detox, and a light moisturizing Finishing Oil that works perfectly under make-up. All products are made from organic and natural ingredients and never tested on animals.

Combining her own 18th birthday celebration with the product launch, teen CEO Zandra Cunningham said, "I am so happy to launch our new face care line! we have created fantastic products for all young women who are challenged by new skincare demands as they also shift from teen to adulthood. Face care is so important and what makes Zandra so unique is our clean and effective formulas, amazing scents, and great quality. The new line marks the start of a brand review and partnership with the Sephora mentorship team so I’m really excited about this nationwide launch!"
