Today we’d like to introduce you to Kathy Carniero.
Kathy is 36 years old, married and mom of 3. She has spent the last 15 years in the hair and beauty industry and “retired” in early 2018. In 2014, she began a new journey in finding a solution for her troubled skin… and that’s when all the fun began!
After years of struggling with problematic skin and inflammation and not getting results from over the counter products, she knew it was time to make a change. This busy mom began her search to find a product that would work naturally with her skin, but couldn’t find what she was looking for and that’s when Ca-Pier Young® came to life. She spent years studying the benefits of natural and organic ingredients, nutrition, skin anatomy and developing products. After she finally found the solution for her skin issues, she conducted numerous trials with diverse skin types and the results were more than amazing!!
Kathy is a thriving health enthusiast and implements healthier foods, smoothies and celery juicing into her new skin healthy journey. Her goal was to not only feel good but to look good too! Now that she has those results she is excited to share it all with you!
Her advice for anyone starting a new business journey or even a health journey is to know your dedication, focus and time are key every step of the way. It has taken her five years to get where she is today with her product line.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Is anything ever a smooth road?! Of course not! “wink wink” but that is why this journey has been so exciting! The mountains I have climbed have all been worth it. When I first started out formulating and building my brand, I ran into some issues finding trustworthy ingredients from reputable companies (you would be surprised how many dishonest people and companies there are). I also went through several bottling issues and wasted tons of money on misprinted labels, wrong sizes, wrong bottles, and the list goes on.
The research and development part was the most stressful, but also the most rewarding. I spent several, several hours studying and understanding ingredients and how they work together and also realized sometimes those ingredients may not offer great results as intended. The challenge of getting my products out to the world and having people trust in my products is daily work. Unlike big brand companies and celebrities we “little people” do all the work versus having others do it for us and the competition is much more fierce.
On a more fun side, once I had finalized my logo, name and slogan it was time to protect it. I filed for a trademark patent and was granted it in 2017!! I am officially a registered trademarked brand!!
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Ca-Pier Young® is a nourishing and effective plant-based skin line created from our earth’s purest oils, botanicals, butters, minerals, florals and nature’s ingredients. They are free from parabens, phthalates, fragrance, glutens, dyes, sulfates, fragrance, and fillers.

Don’t settle for the “kitchen production” of natural skincare…your skin deserves the best!!!
I can personally assure you, that you are getting the best natural and organic products on the market!! Aside from the skincare products my brand focuses on skin health as a whole. What you put in your body affects you on the outside. I focus on skin healthy smoothies, juicing for skin health, hydration, relaxation, diet and destressers (cause we all need this!!). I post daily smoothies on my social media accounts and blog some of them on my website. I have a private group on Facebook called Green Wellness 710, would love for you to join! My focus is to encourage you to live a happier, healthier and greener lifestyle and to feel good about yourself.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
Oh gosh, just the fact that I did it!! Honestly, I think achieving each goal even in the beginning stages is rewarding. Having my customers tell me how much my products have helped their skin and seeing them light up when they talk about it is very heartwarming. Like wow, I did that, I helped them feel good about themself!!
