Tell us about yourself.
My name is Greta warmly referred to as Lady G.
As an Indie Artisan, it is my obligation to preserve ingredient integrity. I’m a mother to one teenage daughter, and I hope to inspire her with my entrepreneurial spirit.
I make all products by hand, and everything is made with love. Body Be Silk is my natural bath & body line, and Hair Be Silk is my hair line. I am leaping Bunny and Peta certified and cruelty-free. I am a leader for clean beauty, and proud to be a woman of color, making my products with love.
What motivated you to start your company?
I started making Handmade luxe bath & body products from home, when purchased products, were not up to par with my skin. My love for hair, was the reason I added a hair line to my aromatherapy resume. My own need for a luxe scalp scrub and Ayurvedic hair oil, was prompt to reason, for the development.
Why do you think it is important that we start taking back the black hair industry?
With so many companies in past years, profiting from ethnic hair products, many had been so surprised to find that very few were black-owned. I believe the very essence of black-owned hair products, are from the very people that use them. It’s time we pay homage to the craftiness of the creators & founders, of black-owned hair products. In order to encourage growth, we need to support one another.
