After having missed retweeting on a few Sundays due to being on holiday, we decided to set a reminder on google calendar. Last Sunday came and at midnight (as the time difference is 7 hours from UK) we got the tweet out to Theo.
And what a fantastic surprise it was waking up to the news that we have been selected as one of the 6! We were (pleasantly) overwhelmed by the numerous re-tweets and the messages of goodwill. Immediately we felt support from fellow winners, good networking and great exposure to the market.
We are a family run business manufacturing organic and natural skincare. Back in early 2014, we made a conscious decision to end the use of chemicals and petroleum products in everything we bought for skin and hair care. Convinced about the benefits of using natural organic products, we faced an uphill struggle to source products that were completely free of anything artificial.
As frustration grew, we decided to make our own products for personal use. The trouble was that message soon got out! Within a month, we started making skin and haircare products for family and friends. The penny dropped! We soon realised that there were so many people out there looking for exactly the same things as we did months earlier. Hence Three Organics was born!
