' I would like to give my most heartfelt thank you for your support! I am incredibly excited to introduce maji. Our goal is to create a thoughtfully curated collection that showcase natural, effective and gentle formulations as well as the latest trends from Africa. Maji is accessible to beauty-forward women around the world.

As of now, I hand-make the products for samples and testing. By giving to my campaign, you will help to propel my vision forward and kick-start the growth of the brand. I consider myself a skincare and wellness junkie, having tested thousands of products over the years. My promise to you ( and I keep my promises ) is to have only the highest quality and most innovative products, bring tips and tricks to make you absolutely love yourselves and help the world around us.

My excitement can barely be contained for maji and the future of maji. I look forward to share my experience and passion with you, and to highlight the wonderful world of African beauty. Email me at anytime at hello@maji-skin.com for questions, comments or feedback - I would love to hear from you!' - Danniella Carter, Owner & Founder

The Campaign FAQs

What are you most excited about launching maji?

I envision a vibrant and thriving future for maji. The trajectory of the brand and the larger beauty market is moving to a sustainable future, which is amazing! Being able to share my ideas to the world and help those who are less fortunate is the very ethos of the brand. 

What are the first steps that you will take after securing funding?

R&D! I have been working on my formulations for a while, but it would be more assuring to collaborate with a cosmetic chemist, dermatologists and other experts to really make maji a reality. The research will not only be for the best botanical ingredients, but it will be for the most efficient packaging that is sustainable and champions the environment.

What does biodynamic mean to you?

To me, biodynamic simply means being more than organic. Biodynamic farming is a shift in thought; everything is considered and farming is viewed holistically, from the worms to the crop.  As an entrepreneur, I do my best to ensure that all the botanics are from exceptional sources.
