Didi Beauty – Coffee Inspired Lip Gloss Shades

Didi Beauty
DIDI BEAUTY CO. was founded in 2018 with the vision to be the most preferred cosmetic brand out of Africa, providing global standard cosmetic products that are both user and eco-friendly. With over 200 distributors, covering 3 continents, thousands of products sold and several products in development, DIDI BEAUTY CO. is one of the fastest-growing brands in Africa. The first of many, pushing boundaries and redefining the makeup industry. 
At DIDI BEAUTY CO., we believe everyone should be able to experiment and express themselves with makeup and feel confident, this drives us to break new grounds/frontiers and bring innovative products to our customers irrespective of skin color and age grade. Our founder, Ms. Doyinsola Afolabi, an investment banker turned beautypreneur was first introduced to the art of makeup by her father, who was a connoisseur of the most exquisite makeup products. His unusual but skilled interest in rouges and blushers was the beginning of something revolutionary, and Doyinsola’s first two lessons about true beauty; 
i. Beauty is not bound by stereotypes, and 
ii. The most gorgeous of things can come from people and places we least expect. 
As Doyinsola grew older, she became even more interested in cosmetics and began to practice as a makeup artist. In the early days of her career, Doyinsola had the opportunity of trying many beauty products from all around the world but was not satisfied with the available products for women of color at the time. There were flaws with the products in the market, including unsuitability with black skin, and massive exorbitance. Doyinsola also observed that the makeup industry was targeted at women below the age of forty hence most products were non-inclusive. This led Doyinsola to search for an all-inclusive, higher quality yet affordable makeup product not restricted by color, culture, age, or religion. 
Every brand starts with a goal, DIDI BEAUTY’s was simple: to provide makeup products for EVERYONE Starting with eyebrow pencils and beauty blenders, DIDI BEAUTY CO. began operations in Lagos, now with a whole range and variety of products to make every woman feel confident about her appearance. DIDI BEAUTY brand is passionate about women and youth empowerment, collaborating with beauty professionals to impact women in the beauty industry by sponsoring makeup and editing classes and also providing makeup influencers and artists with products to upgrade their skills. 
DIDI BEAUTY is for you, for everyone, who is interested in celebrating beauty, individuality, and confidence.

Creekside Mallow

Creekside Mallow Co.
Birthday Cake Mallows | S’mores Kit |Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa | Peppermint Mallow Toppers

“Creekside Mallow is a family-owned small business that makes gourmet marshmallows from scratch and s’mores-inspired treats. They offer a complete s’mores kit with everything needed to make a campfire treat!

Our Story

Creekside Mallow was born from a backyard campfire and sleepover when our daughter, Grace, had a light bulb moment and rushed into the house and yelled, “We should open a gourmet s’mores store!” We didn’t act immediately but the idea stayed in our minds, prompting conversations about how the store would have to revolve around an exceptional marshmallow. Our search came up empty in looking for a source for better than average mallow. We began to research and experiment with recipes until they came up with the perfect hand-crafted mallow.

Our experiments lead to testing, and family and friends became our “focus group”. The reactions were encouraging and that encouragement lead to the development of an idea of how to sell our new product. We decided that we would build a catering business around our mallows. A S’mores bar that would allow people to make a gourmet S’more using our mallows and different chocolates and sauces.”

Our first event was a hit! We were beginning to think we had something and as word got out, we found that we were getting calls from all over the area. Several times at each event customers would tell us that we needed to sell the mallows in stores. Our story may have ended there, we had no idea how to get a product of our own into stores, much less how to package, market, and distribute it. A chance meeting in Boise introduced us to the Idaho Small Business Development Center and a host of advisors and mentors. Working with the SBDC, which we still lean on from time to time, was the break we desperately needed.

 In 2017 fate smiled on us once again when we found our current store and commercial kitchen location in downtown Caldwell Idaho. This meant we would no longer be needing to rent space in someone else’s kitchen and we could really pursue wholesale accounts, along with having a small retail location of our own.

Partnerships, collaborations, and terrific people in many positions have brought us to our current state and we appreciate everyone of them.”
