This week, we’re talking to Stephanie Coker of SDot Beauty who in 2012, found a passion creating premium natural and organic beauty products and hasn’t looked back since. Learn more about her brand and entrepreneurial journey, below!
BLK+GRN: Who are you and why do you do what you do?
STEPHANIE: I am Stephanie Coker, the creator of SDOT Beauty, a handcrafted natural & organic lifestyle beauty brand. My passion is creating products that solve everyday self-care issues with natural and organic ingredients. My goal is to always leave the customer looking and feeling their best in the most natural way.
BLKGRN: What was your “Aha Moment” and when did your vision start to manifest?
STEPHANIE: SDOT Beauty was born out of my sheer desire to start implementing natural remedies for my skin and hair. After much research, trial and error and tenacity, I launched the first product, CURLSPIRATION Curl Defining Gel in 2012 and I have continued to focus on creating products that are earth conscious all the while making women feel luxurious and beautiful!
BLK+GRN: Why do you think it is important to Buy Black?
STEPHANIE: Buying black is important because we have been overlooked in the marketplace for so long and it is important to support brands that are made for us and by us. Our spending power is so strong but, it has been ignored for too long. When you buy black, it sends a message to the world that we matter and our dollars matter.
BLK+GRN: How is your brand green?
STEPHANIE: We are committed to creating simple + pure products that incorporate nature’s finest and most effective ingredients. We believe that a natural and authentic approach to solving daily skin, body & hair issues is the best way to go. Our products are thoughtfully made in small batches to ensure superior quality and LOVE!
