Meet the CEO

Cherlyn M. Carby, Founder and CEO at Skylar J's LushUs Kids, has a combined 20 years of experience in the Legal and Finance Industry. As a working mom, Cherlyn struggled with finding kid-friendly products that were gentle on her daughter Ryan Skylar's hair. She would always buy the adult version of natural hair care products because there weren't many options for children. Cherlyn decided to create her own product line, which would offer other working moms the option of selecting a brand formulated for children that included natural and organic ingredients without the harsh chemicals. Within six months, Cherlyn created a product line and built a team that would contribute to bringing LushUs Kids to the marketplace.

Currently pursuing her PhD., Cherlyn believes that education goes beyond the classroom and has started an internship program. She actively seeks out HBCU college graduates and students. Cherlyn is offering them the opportunity to intern at her Start-Up company and learn Entrepreneurship. Her team includee recent grads and students representing schools such as NC A&T, Norfolk State, Winston-Salem State, Bennett College, and UNC Greensboro.

Skylar J's LushUs Kids mission is to always provide quality products that produce results.
