Biao SkincareNicole Baldwin is the Founder of Biao Skincare. Nicole is a United States Army veteran and studying Aesthetician who is delighted to pass down her grandmother’s cherished tradition of naturally-derived skin care formulations. A burn victim and survivor who has used her own line to virtually eliminate physical scars from her face and body, Nicole understands the emotional challenges women face every day. She formulated her safe and effective beauty and skincare line to meet her own stringent standards and to address the unique complexion needs of women of all ages and races.

What motivated you to start your own company?
I am a United States Army that got the idea to start my own beauty business after being burned with hot scalding water as a child. Witnessing the transformation of my skin from a herbal remedy created by my grandmother really inspired me to start a skin care line.

What’s special about your business?
The fact that Biao Skincare was virtually started. I did all my business development, marketing and launching behind a computer while deployed to Bagram, Afghanistan. Skype became a habit!

How will you use Bravo Video?
I will use Bravo to send to customers for video reviews in exchange for free products. Bravo will allow me to integrate customer video testimonial onto all of my social media websites.

Congratulations, Nicole! We applaud your efforts and welcome you to our growing roster of Bravo Startup Sweepstakes winners!
