Growing Up “Ugly” – Daisy Jing on Building Banish

with Daisy Jing



Daisy Jing is the CEO and founder of Banish, a multi-million-dollar skincare company that only sells on its website, Daisy started Banish by accident; she had struggled with acne all her life and decided to create a YouTube channel documenting her struggle. That YouTube channel has over 700 videos and 70 million views today.

From there, she realized many current skincare ingredients, such as fragrances or fillers, broke her out, and she created her own products in her kitchen. All the products are natural, vegan, and cruelty-free and do not contain any of the ingredients that cause acne for her (namely silicones, mineral oil, petroleum, artificial preservatives, colors, and fragrances). The rest is history!

Daisy was awarded Forbes ‘30 Under 30’ in manufacturing as well as an Inc. 500 entrepreneur and was named one of Los Angeles’ “Fastest Growing Female-Owned Companies in Los Angeles”. She also serves on the board of Entrepreneur Organization-Los Angeles, is a member of the Young Entrepreneur Council, and has sponsored and mentored many young female entrepreneurs through her alumni association, the Duke Alumni Association. Most recently, she was a TEDx speaker and speaks regularly about the struggles we battle with perfection and how to overcome our own inner critic.

“Being consistent and putting one foot in front of the other.”

-Daisy Jing
