Hi I'm Kevin, and I need your help. 5 months ago I relaunched my aunt's former business making semi-handmade bath cosmetics under the brand 'Snowbelle'. I have it filed for intellectual property (registered trademark), renewable every 10 years and my products are FDA approved under the Ministry of Public Health in Thailand.
I work alone, and designed everything from the logo, to the packaging, to the form of the product (including testing the fragrance, the shape and the colors) myself. I have outsourced the production to a small factory in Samutprakan as well as Chaiyaphum, a rural and a poor part in Isan, Northeastern Thailand. The first product was ready for sale three weeks ago, and I've sold 62 units (averaging 2 to 3 per day, offline and online) without any marketing budget until now.
However, now the factory in Chaiyaphum needs a bit of help with more sales orders to remain financially stable/afloat and I'm not liquid enough yet. My initial plan was to launch a new floral fragrance with them every month until there were 12. I also currently have no marketing budget to launch my brand properly with good content such as a website, product photography (currently renting a camera and doing it myself too), keyword ads, and targeting ads. This is how the funds will be allocated: 4/5 for the factory and 1/5 for marketing.
I have not received a bad review yet. The main aim is to create a good bath experience (fragrant, colorful soaps which provides a utility without compromising on the health of the skin). My products focuses on ensuring safety (since there is an epidemic of skin-bleaching in Asia to match the beauty standard here by using substances such as hydroquinone). I use natural and safe substitutes such as koji that has less than 0.5% concentration in the constitution of the soap along with different oils (coconut, african oil palm) as the soap base oil. However, I do not only make whitening products such as the Orange Blossom Whitening Soap. The next one I'm working on is the Sunflower Dew Exfoliating Soap, which focuses more on deep cleansing, removal of dead skin and calluses.
Everything behind my products has a meaning, which I will keep updating you with.
For every $12 or more that I receive, I will ship you my first product.
Alternatively if you're from Asia, you can also check out the product on Lazada and Shopee.
Thank you very much and God bless.
