We (read: The Habibi Team) are proud supporters of The Foundation For Living Beauty. So when the founder asked me to be part of the Holiday Boutique, I was happy to oblige.
I gathered the team and we whipped up a ‘collection’ of bath and body products for the event, the night before the event. This is done on purpose. Because Habibi products are ultra fresh, we wanted the stock to be less than 24 hours old when we introduced it to the boutique guests. Most of them are ‘Living Beauties.’ That means they have, are fighting, or have survived Breast Cancer. They are incredibly sensitive to fragrance, and their skin can’t handle any additive, preservatives or other garbage typically found in many skin care items. Some are in or have been through chemotherapy, which means we have to be very careful about how we care for their skin.
The day of the boutique was rainy, and we weren’t expecting much in the way of reception. But the Living Beauties showed up and showed out! They fell in love with the product, and were receptive to instructions on how to get the most out of every application.
The great news is, we sold out of almost everything. We even took a stack of ‘pre orders’ to fulfill in the coming weeks.
All in all it was a good time. We were honored to be part of the event, and donated 20% of the day’s sales to the Foundation.
