It’s hard to believe that when Rochelle Weitzner launched her company in 2019, Pause-Well Aging was the first to target the wide-open menopause space. The beauty industry veteran ran or helped run brands like Erno Laszlo, Laura Mercier Cosmetics and RéVive Skincare before she started having hot flashes, brain fog and other “experiences”, leading her to start thinking about entering the well-aging (never anti) space in an entirely new, pretty badass way. And she just won the Female Founder of the Year award from CEW cosmetics (sharing it with Bobbi Brown).
