5-Minutes With Amanda Baldwin, President of Supergoop!
Born and bred in New York City, Amanda Baldwin’s resume is indicative of her “real New Yorker” status—her career history includes an investment banking role on Wall Street and top marketing positions at iconic beauty brands Clinique and Dior.
In 2016, Baldwin shifted to under the radar after answering a headhunter call and accepting a position as President of Supergoop!, an indie beauty brand dedicated to changing the way the world thinks about sunscreen. She was attracted to the fact that Supergoop! founder Holly Thaggard created the company “with a mission, not with business.”
With Baldwin at the helm, Supergoop! developed a range of products worthy of the exclamation point, including daily face moisturizers, hand creams, hair powders and even eye shadows infused with clean ingredients and SPF 30+. Our fair-skinned, Denver-based TARRA team takes the necessity of great sunscreen seriously and we can say, without question, that we are Supergoop! converts.
