Co-Founder & CEO, VEGAMOUR
By the time he was 17, entrepreneur Dan Hodgdon lived in about 22 locations around the globe, many of which were in developing countries and communities. He acquired a keen interest in local naturals and would go on to spend decades both researching powerful plant actives and creating sustainable, eco-friendly supply chains for major beauty brands around the globe. Having close relationships with veterans of the World Wildlife Federation, the Peace Corps, the World Health Organization and the USAID, Dan was constantly reminded of the economic frailty that many local communities faced in developing countries. Children lived in poverty. Education was scarce. Workers were exploited. Governments offered subsidies and non-profits offered goodwill, but Dan believed that private businesses would ultimately make the most sustainable positive impact by creating demand, driving up economic viability and improve lives in these vulnerable communities. As such, he became instrumental in establishing a Fair-Trade coop to harvest the highest quality natural actives while providing respectable work to over 5,000 women in southern Africa. Dan co-founded VEGAMOUR to actualize his passion for delivering the most potent plant-based formulas with clinically tested visible results directly to consumers in a way that would reinvest back into the communities from which he sourced. Through the brand, Dan is able to offer the most powerful, purposeful, eco-ethical products directly to people who seek healthier solutions for hair and skin. Today, Dan resides in downtown Los Angeles with his wife Lisa and their Jack Russel Terrier, Eddie. In his free time, he enjoys the arts, theatre, yoga and traveling.
