"By midnight that night we’d done 130 orders."

Rebecca Jefferd doesn’t have a beauty routine yet she is the founder of the hottest new skin care product in Australia, with five products now on the market. As one half of Ultra Violette, Jefferd found a gap in the incredibly competitive and lucrative market by producing a natural, Australian sunscreen for daily use.

Its core selling point was how easily and effectively it could be applied under make-up. Jefferd co-founded Ultra Violette with fellow beauty industry expert Ava Matthews and the pair have enviably experienced overnight success after launching just six months ago. They met working on the wildly successful Mecca founded by Jo Horgan. Jefferd, who is a mother of two, told her story at the first Future Women Social Club in Melbourne.
