Newly Launched Podcast! Your Purpose is Beauty, Episode 1 (listen + show notes + links)

january 18, 2020  | by: mercedes | filed under: podcast, episodes

Welcome to the launch of Your Purpose is Beauty! I was working on this project intently throughout the fall of 2019, and the show launched on Monday December 30th, 2019 with a library of 4 episodes.

Your Purpose is Beauty brings you eco/organic, luxury, and niche beauty product reviews and critique, as well as intellectual discussion about the beauty and alternative health industries.  Hosted by independent beauty journalist and PhD sociologist Mercedes Lyson, this podcast will also explore why people have chosen beauty as their profession or passion through interviews with brand founders, beauty professionals, bloggers/influencers, and creatives. Exclusive episodes of this podcast are available at, and Mercedes’ 6 years of eco beauty video content can be found at
