Kim Kardashian Faces Backlash as Daughter North West, 9, Plans to Launch Skincare Brand

She might only be nine years-old, but it looks like North West already has plans in the works for her to follow her famous family’s footsteps int he world of business.

These rumours come after mom Kim Kardashian filed several new trademarks in her name.

The reality star filed four new trademarks under her eldest daughter’s name that cover a range of skincare elements, such as face serums, shower gels, facials oils and fragrances.

The trademark covers ‘non-medicated skin preparations, skin moisturizers, skin lotions, skin creams, skin cleansers’, as well as ‘skin serums, facial oils, body oils, bath and shower gels, bubble bath, body powders, cosmetics, fragrances, hair care preparations’.

And if anyone is in the right environment to start a business, North Kardashian is definitely surrounding by experience from the best.

Her mom Kim Kardashian and auntie Kylie Jenner both have successful skincare lines, as well as other family members, such as Kendal Jenner, branching out into other areas with her own tequila brand.

Another filing would also allow North to launch her own toy range and covers ​​’toy figures, doll accessories, dolls, drawing toys, infant toys, mechanical action toys, play sets for action figures, soft sculpture toys, bath toys’ and more, the US Sun reports.

The range could also include ‘children’s educational toys for developing fine motor and cognitive skills, musical toys, toy food, toy cookware, baby gyms, playground balls, and sport balls’.

However, after hearing the news, fans have been quick to speak their mind of the matter, with many thinking that nine years old is way too young to be even thinking about starting a skincare line.

”What does a 9 year old know about skin care,” quipped one.

Another slammed the idea, saying ”They trying to exploit her at a young age instead of just letting her be a child.”

Others have even bashed the idea, saying that it’s enforcing damaging beauty standards and insecurities onto kids that are way too young.

”Buying acne treatment from someone who has yet to have their first pimple,” one user said.

”Not just her own child but the millions of other kids who shouldn’t be putting products on their face but are fixated on skincare regimens anyway bc of social media,” she continued.

Wheres others have actually jumped to mom Kim’s defence, praising her for setting her children up with a platform to utilise.

”Y’all so negative but this girl is gonna have her own platform when she gets older. I wish I had a parent who was able to get me my own business at such a young age,” one user commented.

Another showed their support, saying ”She’s just setting her daughter up to have a financially secure future. I don’t see anything wrong with that.”

What do you think?

(It’s important to note that just because the trademarks are filed, it doesn’t mean the nine-year-old is going to launch her own skincare brand any time soon.)
