I am proud to announce that AxV Beauty won a $10k grant from IFundWomen x Neutrogena.
Like many suffering from acne, we are often over-prescribed harsh topicals that can ultimately cause more damage than good. It was important that we created a product that was gentle on acne-prone skin. Although out products are great for all, we intentionally created a platform for Black acne-prone adults to feel comfortable in their skin and with their journey.
Our best selling product, the Essential Face Oil has been featured in Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post as one of the best products for a simplified routine. It's a hand infused, daily face oil that soothes, calms, and hydrates acne-prone and irritated skin.
Why Support Us?
There are obvious barriers for women, especially those of color, to raise funds to support our business growth. As of 2019, 50% of all women owned businesses are owned by women of color and generate roughly $422.5 billion in revenue. However, out of the almost $90 Billion raised in VC funding, women of color owned businesses receive less than 1%. As a growing e-commerce business, paid marketing is going to be instrumental in our growth and longevity.
Since launch in September 2020, we’ve been very intentional about organically creating a highly engaged community of skincare enthusiasts. Our business is starting to gain traction and we’ve been featured in Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post. We are steadily growing and have already achieved 350+ orders, 15k+ unique website visitors, 1k+ followers on Instagram, and upcoming partnerships with other Black owned small businesses. However, we understand the importance of paid advertisement and the impact it has on increasing brand awareness and website traffic.
Your donations will provide us the necessary funding to expand our team and to fund our marketing and advertising initiatives to support our business growth. In an ever-growing market, brand awareness and online visibility are key. By donating to us, you are not only investing in our business today, but investing in the future of AxV Beauty!
