Oshun Body Goods
Founder: Amar Quick
The start of Oshun Body Goods was from an inspiration from a Science project. A classmate and I both did a project on Soap making, and it was very fun, even though my first attempt of making soap went horribly wrong. I also liked body oils, and had recently learned that it was better to use oils instead of perfumes because the perfumes can give you many illnesses and I had developed a goal to make healthy skincare products. I started Oshun during Kwanzaa on December 29, 2017 when I sold some body oils, and ever since then, I loved doing this.
The name, Oshun (oh-shoon) comes from the name derived from the Yoruba & Fon goddess Oshun; the goddess of beauty, purity, and love. She represents this brand because beauty represents the natural beauty every person has within themselves, purity which represents the natural ingredients, and love represents how you will feel after trying theses products.
Oshun Body Goods is a bath goods business that uses natural ingredients to create healthy and organic bath and body products made without the use of chemicals. These past few months have been spent planning and marketing a sale for May 27th. I worked on making and improving products like the oil to sugar ratio in the sugar scrubs, and I have worked on marketing the business by sending out email campaigns and working on an instagram business account, @oshunbodygoods. There has been a large amount of work put into this business in order to make it just right.
