Valencia Scott’s idea for natural lip and skin products was born from necessity and creativity. Working to combat her own dry skin, she developed a gentle and effective recipe. Later she jazzed up her recipe by blending organic oils, testing different formulations and consulting pharmaceutical experts. In 2006, this yielded her first signature product, The Perfect Pucker Lip Exfoliant. It was not long before customers started requesting additional skincare products.

Since then, The Perfect Pucker has expanded its line to include products for both women and men, including lip balms, hand lotions, beard oils and more, all handmade in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Scott’s products are paraben-free, dye-free and are never tested on animals. Today, multiple celebrities and reality television personalities are spreading the word about Scott’s natural lip and skin therapy products.

Scott earned a bachelor of business administration degree in marketing from Western Michigan University. Concurrent with her thriving skincare business, she has been involved in supply chain management for more than 20 years.
