Project Description

This fundraiser will help a Black, woman-owned indie skincare brand continue its success by scaling up fufillment to better meet the demands of our consumers and our current national retailer partners like Urban Outfitters! These funds will also enable us to focus on developing new products and bringing them to market.

 

Flora Lee Naturals is a small-batch, skincare brand based in Cincinnati Ohio and owned by me, Nia Baucke. I began my skincare making journey in 2017, after realizing that over-the-counter harsh chemical treatments were not serving my oily acne-prone skin well. Using the wisdom of the naturalistas in my life, like my grandmother Flora Lee, I went back to the basics-- using natural, often handmade, products to heal my skin. 

 

Since launching Flora Lee, I’ve worked full-time while simultaneously growing my the business. It's incredible to think about the traction that we've made. Our biggest success thus far is launching into Urban Outfitters: becoming one of the few black-owned beauty brands on the site. This summer, I'll be going full-time with Flora Lee to help take the business to the next level. 

 

In order to meet demand and grow, I need to be able to purchase materials in larger quantities and bring on part-time help (yay creating jobs!).  It's also my hope to use these funds to secure the roll out of our newest product ideas.

 

I am so proud of Flora Lee and I'm so excited for the growth of our business. With your help we can reach new heights by ensuring that our fufillment process is fast and cost-effective, and bring new products to our community. Thank you so much for your support! 

Brighter days always,

Nia

The Campaign FAQs

What are your plans for these funds? 

  • These funds will mainly go toward bringing on additional part-time help to support a streamlined fufillment process. We also hope to use these funds to purchase our ingredients in larger bulk so we can better meet demands (AKA stop selling out so quickly!).

What if I can't support monetarily? 

  • I've been there before. I encourage anyone who wants to give, to do whatever feels comfortable. Sharing the campaign on your social platforms or by word-of-mouth is a great way to help as well.
