19-year-old Elsipogtog man starts cosmetics and skin care business

The owner of a new cosmetics business in New Brunswick hopes his business can create more space for two-spirit people to be themselves.

Michael Sage Augustine, 19, launched Runningbear Cosmetics earlier this month. Augustine is Mi’kmaw from Elsipogtog First Nation, about 91 km north of Moncton.

“I’m just glad I did it. It’s scary owning a company,” he said.

“I never thought I would see the day that I would finally own a business.” Full story here.
