Partners in life and in business, Jaz and Jamil started Yellow Beauty back in December 2015. Raised in a Bengali family, Jamil was first exposed to turmeric-based skincare on a trip to Bangladesh. At a family wedding, he experienced the Holud (Haldi) ceremony, which was one of the highlights of his visit. Unfortunately, a sad truth was revealed: a third of the girls in his homeland are married before their 18th birthday — and his own grandmother was married at just 9 years old. Together, Jaz and Jamil formulated natural turmeric-based products that just work with the goal to empower girls and help end child marriage in the process.
