What kind of products do you sell?
Natural, organic skincare products.
How did you get started?
Being a mom is tough work, and I needed to make a side hustle that fit my new lifestyle. Being from South Africa, I struggled to find products here in Canada that worked as well as our products back home. So, I finally decided to go and make my own goodies.
Why are you a maker?
I wanted something for myself that didn’t require me to be a mom or a wife. Just my own boss.
What inspires you?
Along with my boys, my husband and my fellow makers also inspire me. I have found such incredible woman within the local maker community.
What is your favourite product that you sell?
My matcha lip balm and hand and foot balm. These two are my babies and I poured my blood, sweat and tears to make these perfect.
What is your most popular product?
Matcha lip balm or beard oil.
What's one fun fact that someone might not know about you?
I am planning to run my first 21km and this will be to push supporting local!
