Project Description

Stardust Salves & Potions is "Healing for Every Body and Salves for Every Soul. We are a small startup company that seeks to close the gap of inclusion within the organic natural skincare, haircare, and personal care market. This is because many of the amazing environmentally conscious brands that we recognize wholly to be doing their part in helping society to transition back into natural, sustainable, and unprocessed lifestyles practices to assist the planet in healing and flourishing are falling short to accommodate many of most vulnerable of the consumer demographic within this same niche market. We recognize that many of these wonderful companies today do a great job at focusing on the issue of removing unnecessary additives, and processed ingredients from product formulas for both the greater good of their customers and the planet but we also couldn't help but notice that not many of these companies laser focus on providing excellent formulas for the demographic of customers that are highly sensitive and have additional allergies to even popular natural products.

 

This is Stardust Salves & Potions, LLC's ultimate passion, and purpose. We are an all-natural eco-friendly based product line that is dedicated to creating healing herb-based remedies in the form of body butters, creams, salves, hair moisturizers, oils, soaps, candles, bath bombs, bath salts, lip balms, perfumes/body mists, and feminine care products with formulas that cater to customers with nut and soy allergies. We strive to increase the marketplace with hypoallergenic products that do not rely on the usual cosmetic bases of shea butter, cocoa butter, or even coconut butters and oils just to name a few. We have done our due diligence to research and create healing topical formulas that are completely free of what is referred to as "The Big 8" which includes milk/dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, crustacean shellfish, wheat, and soy. Now as we said, we are all about inclusion so that means that we have products for everyone including those who can handle some or all of the usual "Big 8" just fine but it is most important for those within the highly sensitive market to know that they are heard and seen.

 

Stardust Salves & Potions is well versed in the very frustrations that we are desire to address in the market of natural cosmetic personal care products. We are our very first testers for this market and this is because our brand was created from a necessity to soothe our own rampant ailments. Stardust Salves & Potions was created from a personal need to cure a family history of chronic eczema, psoriasis, hyperpigmentation as a result of acne scars, hidradenitis suppurativa, and chronic dry skin. And we are especially versed in knowing how very few options are available on the market to try to soothe little ones struggling from these conditions on top of other intolerances, conditions, and sensitivities like asthma, soy allergies, tree nut allergies, dairy sensitivities.

 

Stardust Salves & Potions, LLC, the brand, was brainstormed in 2015 and finally created into an official LLC in August of 2019. Stardust Salves and Potions meets the needs of the environmentally-conscious thriving market place of customers eager to support sustainable, earth-friendly, natural products that are fair trade, free of preservatives, and able to treat a wide range of mild ailments (i.e. headaches, muscle pain, skin issues, mild behavior controlled anxiety/stress, PH imbalances, Stardust Salves & Potions is a for the niche market of holistic hygiene and organic personal care, specifically for those in this customer base who find themselves to possess various allergies and sensitivities to a lot of mainstream ingredients and additives. Stardust Salves & Potions caters to those who want to affect self-care products without the fear of biological aversions and reactions. Stardust Salves & Potions is a family-owned, woman-owned, black-owned business that seeks to shine a beacon of light and inspiration for minority communities everywhere. There are many already established black-owned businesses like we aspire to be within our niche natural/holistic market that has given us the very courage we have now to move forward with our own dreams, remedies, and recipes for healing. This includes the Honey Pot Brand (natural feminine products), Melanin Haircare product by Whitney White, Allafia, Qhemet Biologies, Oyin Handmade, Glow by Daye, and many many more. Stardust Salves & Potions' competitive advantage with our immediate competition is that each of our product creations were born out of a personal need to soothe/treat our own mild ailments with the use of herbs, natural oils, and ingredients that would not cause an allergic reaction. Our family has a long history of allergies and intolerances to many of the nut-based oils and powders that are on the market so we worked hard to come up with alternatives for customers just like us who want the same power as self-care products on the market without the fear of breaking out and making the symptoms we are trying to treat even worse.

 

There are many vegan and natural products on the market but many of them still use base oils made from coconut, Shea butter, cocoa butter, soy, and even avocado oil that many people including us and our family have allergies and intolerances to. This has made it even more difficult to find products with compatible fragrances, moisturizers, and even simple toners that would not worsen the problem. We are here for those who need minimum hypoallergenic ingredients in their hair care/skin routine that still provides glowing results. Stardust Salves & Potions also offers herb-infused oils that help soothe minor ailments such as headaches, muscle aches, stress, anxiety, hormone imbalance, PH imbalance, mild congestion, etc. that can be used topically or externally for temporary relief of these ailments. We also create hypoallergenic hair and skin moisturizers specifically for those who require additional caution against soy and nut-based oils/butters. We also create body lotions, hair creams, oils, soaps, candles, bath bombs, bath salts, lip balms, perfumes/body mists, and feminine care products with the same acute consideration and intent for balance/healing.

Once Stardust Salves & Potions has gathered a loyal customer base and accrued additional profits and manpower, we plan to devote a lot of time and attention to a weekly blog dedicated to mental health and spiritual growth. This blog will eventually extend into books and planners. We also plan to create a unisex clothing line within the hobo chic, afro-centric, and mystical/spiritual symbology market. Stardust Salves & Potions is a startup business still seeking the opportunity through investors/seed money to bring our dreams to fruition. We have not yet been in a financial position to fuel/fund our business ventures but we are always actively creating formulas and recipes, researching the market, and preparing ourselves for when the golden opportunity arrives to be able to bring our talents, passions, and creativity into the world. Stardust Salves & Potions is an LLC comprised of only two members who are also sisters. We share the workload of business operations. We both mix/create products, brainstorm, research, brand, advertise, and seek guidance, opportunities, and resources for expansion. All business and creative responsibilities are shoulders by each of us equally. As we said before we are still seeking start-up funding to really get the business started so right now, we are both eagerly reaching out to organizations for funding, counseling, and guidance. Stardust Salves & Potions' competitive advantage with our immediate competition is that each of our product creations were born out of a personal need to soothe/treat our own mild ailments with the use of herbs, natural oils, and ingredients that would not cause an allergic reaction.

 

Our family has a long history of allergies and intolerances to many of the nut-based oils and powders that are on the market so we worked hard to come up with alternatives for customers just like us who want the same power as self-care products on the market without the fear of breaking out and making the symptoms we are trying to treat even worse. As we mentioned, there are many vegan and natural products on the market but many of them still use base oils made from coconut, Shea butter, cocoa butter, soy, and even avocado oil that many people including us and our family have allergies and intolerances to. This has made it even more difficult to find products with compatible fragrances, moisturizers, and even simple toners that would not worsen the problem. We are here for those who need minimum hypoallergenic ingredients in their hair care/skin routine that still provides glowing results. Stardust Salves and Potions, LLC is a home-based handmade business located in Spartanburg, SC. However, we seek to set up an e-commerce store to sell our products exclusively Online to reach a more international customer base with a few popup shops and local partnerships in the Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson, Gaffney, South Carolina and even Charlotte, NC area. Stardust Salves & Potions, LLC as an up-and-coming company will be utilizing the astronomically powerful platforms that are social media to network, connect, accrue following, advertise products, display sale items, etc. Our main platforms will be Pinterest, Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook starting out to Pique the interests and reach audiences from all over the world. Once we have established a blog, we continue into YouTube to create a community of healing and create more interactive inspiring messages for mental/emotional wellbeing. We plan to show success stories, positive reviews, instructional videos, DIY recipes, and positive community-building messages on all platforms.

 

Stardust Salves & Potions is still very much in the startup pre-revenue stage of business operation but have been diligently seeking the funding required to transition our business from just a dream on the shelf to a top competitor within our targeted natural personal care product market. Winning this once-in-a-lifetime grant would breathe literal life into our business. Funding would allow us to buy all the raw materials, ingredients, inventory, equipment, office space, and material needed to begin creating and testing our special formulas. We would also be able to enlist the assistance of professionals to bring our branding visions for our company to life for everything from logos, to package designs, to social media and a website. This type of funding would not get us started it would put us in the running.
