What is your biggest success?

Our biggest success has been being the first wellness product to be sold in Poetry stores South Africa and being featured as the best collagen on the market by Womens health magazine here https://womenshealthsa.co.za/best-collagen-for-skin/ Megan was also identified as a local female entrepreneur to watch by Poetry Stores south Africa https://hellolifestyle.co.za/celebrate-empowering-local-female-entrepreneurs/ Our founders story was also recently covered in the Wellness warehouse magazine May edition here We have also have partnered with global brands such as Nutribullet and Elisabeth Arden.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Our biggest hurdle has strangely been the biggest focus of our business since inception. Having a fully local product has come with its hurdles- many of our competitors blend product in asia and get packaging in bulk there too- but all of our elements are 100% local. Our packaging has been the biggest set back holding us back from bigger profits but 4 years in we have now found incredible partners- so its just smooth sailing ahead.
