We first met Zandra Cunningham a few years ago when she was a part of our very first festival – our Totally Buffalo Festival in May of 2017! Zandra and everyone surrounding her had one goal – to make beautiful, healthy, affordable skin care products for teens and young professionals.

You can say – mission accomplished. BIG TIME!!!!

Her products are amazing.

And Target has taken notice!

The ‘Treat Yo Self Gift Box – made exclusively for Target – includes – Zandra hand and body lotion – a moisturizing, nourishing and repairing formula made with skin-loving whipped butters and oils; an exfoliating sugar scrub – designed to exfoliate the body for a natural glow; and the famous lip and body balm – the ultimate moisturizer on the go. All products are free of chemicals.

From its Buffalo-based lab, Zandra combines the art of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) to create 50 nutrient-rich, chemical-free, skincare products. Believe it or not, Zandra began making her products in her own bedroom when she was just nine years old!!!


What is Zandra all about – just ask the 19-year-old herself, “Zandra is a social good company that educates + empowers girls & women across the globe via STEAM Education & Entrepreneurship. As a plant based, cruelty-free, eco friendly small business in Western New York, we are committed to sustainable practices with a priority on how gentle and sensitive skin can be. The mission is to create high quality, fun + fresh products that smell amazing but don’t have all the unnecessary yucky stuff + chemicals. We want you to feel good about your choice. Zandra is about girl’s education and empowerment. The hope is to inspire youth to take action and make things happen for themselves and their communities.
As an agent of change, up to 10% of all net profits are donated to support girls’ education.”

Zandra and her team have certainly come a VERY LONG way since that festival a few years ago and we could not be more proud!!!!

Keep making amazing products and keep being a wonderful role model for teens and young adults all over the world!!!!
