Demetra Davis is a dear friend and colleague from the days before I retired from the Academy of Natural Sciences where my position was Manager of the Changing Exhibit Hall and Birthday Party Coordinator. Demetra, who was part of the WINS Program, not only worked in my department, but helped out with Safari Overnights, Outside-in, and Diorama Carts. What is Wins? Women in Natural Sciences, which is a free after school and summer science enrichment program at the Academy of Natural Sciences that introduces hundreds of high school girls to careers in science by providing hands-on science workshops. I knew from that first day that Demetra introduced herself to me in the Changing Exhibit Hall, that this young lady was going places. She has the entrepreneur spirit! Demetra has started her own business selling beauty products and she is my guest on my blog.
What inspired you to start Divine Organics?
I was inspired to start my business because there are so many products out there that don't do what they're supposed to do. They don't moisturize, they don't clean, and a lot of them are bad for you laced with more chemicals that natural ingredients. Also I've noticed a lot of the healthier options are too expensive. A lot of people will buy the cheaper stuff because it's cheap and they're harming themselves. I wanted to offer solutions to both problems.
Have your friends tried your products and if so, what did they like or dislike about the products?
Yes I make everything myself and I also allow anyone who wants to order from me to customize their order. Right now I offer body scrubs and whipped hair and body butters. I allow the customer to choose their ingredients.
Yes, I’m planning on selling this on line and people can find my products on these two sites. Life with Demetra and here.
