What is your hiring policy/process, and how do you retain your employees?

How are you funding your growth?

Dewi van de Waeter: At the start, my co-owner/investor ensured we could afford to make a big batch of deodorant. We have been growing mainly organic since.

Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?

Dewi van de Waeter: Any brand that is a sustainable, vegan cosmetics brand could be considered a competitor. But I applaud them all for changing the norm with us!

Tell us a customer success story of yours.
