Episode 004-Demosea (formerly So Posh Beauty)

Welcome to the fourth episode of the BLK + GRN podcast. This week we sit down with the owner of Demosea (formerly So Posh Beauty), Ronni Wilson. Due to her struggle with an auto-immune disorder, Ronni’s business So Posh was born out of necessity.

About the Artisan: Ronni Wilson: Demosea

Ronni Wilson is the owner and founder of Demosea. Ronni was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder at the age of 18 and was told to give up all scented products because they could irritate her skin. All of her beloved fragrances had to be replaced with products that were either unscented or smelled medicinal. She was devastated. She became really ingredient conscious and began to research all of the products she used previously, and what she found was shocking.  It was during this research that she found what she calls her life’s passion. She found a recipe to make natural soap and made her first batch of natural soap. She was hooked. That one batch of soap turned into body creams, scrubs, and oils. She began giving away her products to others with skin conditions and after a while, people began to come back and request to order products from her. Before long, she realized she had a business!
