A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
According to historians, in 1770 a man by the name Captain James Cook landed his ship in Sydney, Australia. He traveled North to South Wales where he found a tree that was covered with a special leaf that was sticky and smelled quite strong. He tried to boil them which created a spicy tea.
The leaves of this tree would fall into nearby waters and it is said that the waters would suddenly contain magical healing powers. James asked the local aborigines about the curious plant and they taught him all about its healing powers. They told him how their Australian Aboriginal brothers used these trees for many generations to treat cuts, wounds.
This was only the beginning of the Tea Tree journey. It later went throughout the European countries thanks to Australia Dr. Penfold, who turned the leaves into oils and used those oils for many different purposes.
For years, people have been swearing that Tea Tree oil has the ability to do wonders! Such as:
Deal with Acne
Wash away fungal infections (like Athletes Foot or toenail fungus)
Keep skin healthy
Chase mosquitos away and soothe their bites
Banish body and foot odors to the farthest corners of the world!
Cleanse skin and making it look and feel rejuvenated.
Fight bacterial infections
Stop Lice dead in their tracks
Even get rid of mold!
We started to hear of these magical claims and decided to take them the next level and make them into something that people can actually use! After breaking our heads we finally came up with a line that would infuse Tea Tree Oil in several skin care products, allowing people all over to test them and see for themselves the benefits of the "magical oil".
The list of products we came up with and have been working on are:
Tea Tree Body Butter - Using our incredible Body Butter formula
Tea Tree Body Wash
Tea Tree Body Scrub
Tea Tree Face Wash
Tea Tree Face Mask
Tea Tree Facial Toner
Tea Tree Foot Lotion
Tea Tree Foot Deodorant Spray
Tea Tree Foot Wash
As of now, we have been able to create functional samples of all the items and have been able to even come up with designs and manufacturing processes. Many of us believe so strongly in the line that we volunteer ourselves as tributes to test out every prototype.
We can't wait to bring our line to the market and get Tea Tree infused skin products in the houses of people everywhere.
Risks and challenges
Right now, most of our items turned out great in our samples batches. The Body Scrub is the only one that had a weird color when it came out. So we are trying now to test it out again and get the correct color.
Once all product batches are to our liking, we need to put it through stability testing to make sure that it has a safe shelf life. This will allow us to be confident in our quality control and quality assurance.
We need the funds now to push stability testing, to perfect manufacturing techniques to make sure that when we push through an order or production run of thousands of units at a time, all will be the same. We need to run a few final production tests to make sure that the final product will be consistent and meet our ridiculously high standards.
Our Foot products (foot spray, lotion and wash) are the newer items in our bundle and they are a bit behind the rest. The labels have not been finished and the bottles to use have not been chosen yet. Within the next few months we will have finished designs, and product sample ready to follow the rest into stability testing before sample production begins.
The Optimist Skeptic questions everything they are told. However, they want to believe. They want to prove that these ancient methods might just work, but don't want to risk too much. This option allows them to help the cause and admit to themselves that there may be a benefit in the old natural tricks.
These people have heard of the legendary effects of the Tea Tree and want to try it out for themselves. They are shower enthusiasts that love making sure that once they leave their waterfall heaven, they are clean and feel... Simply incredible.
These people have heard of the legendary effects of the Tea Tree and want to try it out for themselves. Their face is so important that they try all the new and exciting products out there. But they won't put anything on their skin that royalty would not use. That's why they want to try our Tea Tree Face Line.
Their face means the world to them and they want to use the best to make sure that when they leave the house, the first thing everyone sees, is clean, fresh and smooth. They always want to make sure that they have enough of the "good stuff" at home.
This is the early bird special for those who just want it all!! They are convinced and want to try everything, but want to do so BEFORE everyone else! Backers will receive their items a month BEFORE the rest!
