What Does Your Company Do?

Many men& women end up suffering from baldness, damaged skin or hair due to products applied. That contain artificial contents that upset the natural pH balance of the skin. Many products even go as far as selling their products as organic& pH7 balanced, when in reality it's nothing more than a marketing gimmick. I saw a gap in the market for a cosmetics company whose products are so organic that they're literally edible, with contents of essential oils& herbs customers can actually read& understand. Uju beauty projects supplies 100% organic, pH7 balanced cosmetics. A hemp seed face wash, a edible face butter& an edible mango butter hair food. Products that are dermatologically tested and approved. We currently supply hair foods and face butters to two local barbershops & working on rebranding to create an online presence & store. As the assets to make home delivery for customers already exists - motorbikes. We looking to expand in our supply to barbershop's & salons. As well as entering the retail and online market once by the start of the second quarter of this financial year.
