Project Description

25th and June

 

Our goal is to raise $25,000 in pre-seed funding to grow beyond just a nail polish company and into a full eco-system of clean beauty products to help nourish, enhance, and simplify your beauty routine.

 

Why are we expanding?

Providing toxin-free, vegan-friendly nail polish has been our sole mission and focus since 2013.

But nearly 10 years after launching our first collection so many things have changed: the ingredients we put on our bodies, the way we spend our money, and the time we invest in self-care. 

  • Women in the US spend more than $800 million dollars a year on nail polish alone.*
  • That number increases to $511B when you include the entire beauty industry.* 

The demand for nail care and clean beauty products continues to rise, and as our customers needs and expectations continue to evolve, it’s time for 25th & June to evolve as well.

How you can support 

Our Goal

We are raising $25,000 to help us fund the growth of 25th & June in 3 ways:

  • Diversify our product offerings to perfect our existing nail polish lines and introduce new high-quality clean beauty products (think nourishing nail and body lines, and toxin-free gel polish!)
  • Expand our marketing reach to get in front of more than 45 million beauty enthusiasts who are already eager to buy from toxin-free beauty brands
  • Elevate our social media presence with expert social media and PR teams to showcase 25th & June in creative, interactive, and authentic ways

Why crowdfunding?

Women-owned business receive less than 3% of all VC and startup funding. That number gets even lower for minority-owned businesses. 

  • To compete in this rapidly-growing beauty industry we need low-risk funding to more effectively develop, market, and launch our products. 
  • Crowdfunding is an efficient path to getting a small business off the ground without going into irreversible debt.
