Pamela continued: "I mean, people have been asking me to do skin care and beauty products, since, you know, Baywatch days, but I just was looking at it going, 'Well, is it sustainable? Is it cruelty-free?'

Talking about her beauty philosophy, the icon explained: "I don’t want to fit into any formula. I want to strip it back, peel it back… I know what it’s like being a mother, a single mom or working in the industry, or in a relationship that doesn’t work.
"It is so much life that I’m taking as the inspiration. So, it makes it much more fun for me. We don’t have to answer anybody."
She added: "[Beauty] is about celebrating where you’re at, celebrating in your beauty journey, being OK with who you are right now.
"Really embracing where you’re at and making yourself feel the best and representing your highest self."
