Brit + Co

18 AAPI Founders We Love to Support

We are often inspired by the creativity and resilience of the founders we feature on Brit + Co, especially BIPOC founders who chart their own path despite greater challenges. The anti-Asian racist attacks in Atlanta, and increasingly around the world since the pandemic, are a sobering reminder how far we have to go to see the beauty and richness in our cultural differences. Ahead of Asian Pacific American Heritage month in May, we are featuring AAPI founders who are proof of that richness in diversity and inspire us every day with their fresh ideas to make the world a better, more colorful, more beautiful, and more planet-friendly place for all.

Diane's mother and grandmother raised her with holistic, naturopathic, aromatherapy and encouraged her to seek wellness beauty rituals. Diane says her Asian heritage inspires her creative process when sourcing plant-based ingredients that have been used for centuries. Her personal care brand MO MI is animal- and planet-friendly and incorporates values from Diane's heritage and from time spent living, working and traveling in Europe and Asia.
