Welcome to the Hive!
We are a start up skincare company based out of Washington DC, looking to provide luxurious products with more in mind.
The project started out personal, when I realized there were no Vitiligo-friendly products on the market! Having spotted Vitiligo myself, I started to dive deeper into moisture and protection for de-pigmented skin. After reading how photosensitive the skin becomes, I noticed that a lot of products lack the basic protection my skin needed, and thus my journey began!
I researched more on the benefits of clays and oils, and set to work on formulations that could provide glowing skin without harshly stripping it. I used only what came out of my kitchen for a year, and I’ve never been so comfortable bare-faced, in my own skin, and in love with it. I had to share!
In the middle of the madness, I still wanted to do more. Sure, skincare is cool, but deep down I still wanted to see myself in a career that allowed me to do what I truly wanted to do: help others. That was when I decided that IF I was going down the path, I had to stand for more.
Our line is different, in that each product (post Kickstarter Launch,) will have a donation to a project in mind—included in its retail price!
With time (and more products) we will continue to add donation projects to the list, and hope to cover a wider range with growth. If our hive works hard enough, we can bring change too!
Future Goals: If HoneyDeux picks up (praying working and wishing!,) I hope to bring my joy to more jobs, and creating an empowering work environment to those beside me. Providing childcare, paid parental leaves, PTO, sick leave and promoting growth within the hive. I know it’s all future stuff, but I get So excited I figure I’d just spill all the beans.
Risks and challenges
Timelines for rewards (depends on production levels,) may not be all the way accurate yet. Until we can secure better equipment (mixing and expensive lab stuff,) everything is coming along hand-crafted in small batches.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
