About NÄRA

Inspired by the “Power of Plus,” Mindy Scott, an advocate for body positivity, inclusion, and representation, felt moved to create a skincare line, special enough for anyone to enjoy, but intended to accurately celebrate the plus size body. 

With a background in philanthropy, activism, and having spent many years learning to admire her own plus size body, Mindy has dedicated her spare time to creating an online presence and platform to help others honor their bodies, in whatever shape they come. 

With this idea, Mindy recruited the expertise of Chemist and cosmetic formulator, Katarina Stetz. Katarina, born and raised in Sweden, holds two Master’s degrees in Chemical Engineering, and in Business and Finance. With over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, Katarina was excited about this partnership and ready to create beautiful products, with nourishing ingredients, intended to achieve ultimate results. 

Having worked both personally and professionally with Holistic Esthetician, Gabi Stepan, Gabi was asked to join in on this project to contribute not only her extensive knowledge of skin, but to utilize her many years of experience in sales and communications. 

Working in the beauty industry, Gabi often felt that bodies that looked like hers, were under represented in beauty ads, packaging, and marketing. With a brand like Nara, Gabi is passionate about normalizing plus size bodies and changing our society’s view of beauty standards.
