How Clean Beauty Brand Common Heir Was Founded

Such was the case for Cary Lin and Angela Ubias, founders of Common Heir, a clean, plastic-free, high-performance skincare brand. The company’s chief executive officer and chief product officer, respectively, had been set up on a “blind phone-call date” by a mutual friend shortly before COVID-19 struck, leaving Ubias in Austin and Lin in L.A. Through countless online-coworking-sessions and repeated requests to “hop on a quick FaceTime,” the two beauty industry vets were able to successfully launch their Vitamin C serum, a concentrated formula to improve skin texture and brighten dark spots, in the form of a biodegradable, plant-based capsule.
