Carol J. Buck
Founder & CEO
In 1996, Xenna Founder, Carol J. Buck began developing personal care products that today are sold across the country to millions. With business experience in advertising, consumer product marketing and pharmaceutical consulting, she had the knowledge base to launch her own personal care products company.
Her first product was a natural curl relaxer which successfully sold in Walgreens for several years. Her hair relaxer research led to an in-depth understanding of the protein keratin and opened the door to other applications. Because toenails and fingernails are comprised of keratin Carol realized, and later clinically proved, that another formulation would clear nails of keratin debris, the unsightly, discoloring build-up under nails where nail fungus thrives. Branded NONYX® Fungal Nail Clarifying Gel, this discovery put Xenna on the retail map. Today, Xenna continues to develop new products for skin, scalp, and nails. Ms. Buck is an active member of the Women Presidents' Organization, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists and the Diversity Alliance for Science. She lives in Princeton, NJ with her husband, a retired entrepreneur and novelist, and enjoys tennis and gardening in her spare time.
