Today is International Women's Day, a celebration of women across the world. As a company with a female founder and a strong team of women, we are proud and delighted to celebrate this special day.
We thoroughly enjoy working in the bio-science industry. One reason is that we get the pleasure of meeting with many inspirational female business owners. We work with two very special online retail sites who provide a platform for female entrepreneurs and their products. All By Mama is a site dedicated to products produced by mothers who run their business around the joys and demands of family life, something that we feel very strongly about. We have 5 people in our own team; all women, who work on a flexible basis to balance their commitment to us with other priorities, be that family, educational or work. Let us introduce you to some of our team in our Meet the Team blog series here.
Sheggs is another online platform with whom we work and it's dedicated to promoting the work of women in ethical businesses. Founder Jocelyn says that being female and a mother of girls she is incredibly passionate about providing customers with carefully thought out and individually designed products/services that are only created by women. We strongly believe that when women collaborate and work together, great things can be achieved. Therefore, we are really pleased to support the work undertaken by Sheggs, All By Mama and other female led businesses. Do check out both sites for some brilliant businesses and beautiful unique products created by women.
Our charity partnership with Breast Cancer Haven has continued into 2018 following the great success of 2017. For every bar of Aloe Vera soap sold we donate 25% to the charity.
