CrowdFunding promotion African Body Scrub Curiosities

posted Apr 16, 2015, 11:37 PM by J Shaw   [ updated Apr 16, 2015, 11:38 PM ]

Not Just Body Scrubs! Experience the natural wealth of Africa in a new and curious way.

The Cause

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” ― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax 

The average person comes into contact with 9 personal care products on a daily basis. There is a growing social awareness of unacceptable practices in mainstream cosmetics; and just as we limit the toxins we consume in our food; so too will we fight the poisons in personal care products.

We Are...

naturalREBEL, a small company looking to make a big impact through Body Scrubs that impassion personal care with real world issues. 
In 2014 an idea became a reality, to produced ethical and sustainably made Body Scrubs. This has become our forte and we make them like no one else.

Ingredients sourced are about the inclusion of communities that are all but ignored by the mainstream cosmetics industry.

Our Favourites Ingredients: Coconut oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Hempseed oil, Dead Sea Salts, Bentonite Clay, Ethiopian Arabica Coffee, Senegalese Coconut Sugar, Nigerian Jollof Rice as well as various Essential Oils. These are just some of the ingredients!

naturalREBEL products are currently for sale at one partner location and through our eCommerce store www.naturalrebel.co

What We Need & What You Get

We have resisted the urge to set a BlueSky funding target. Our intention with this campaign is to deliver a product, build customer experience and show proof of concept on a global scale.
The funds will be used for backer rewards and shipping of rewards. As well as for ingredients and materials, packaging (jars, the new label required) and other supplies. Excess funds will be used to boost marketing efforts as detailed below.
We've invested $1200 into the project (plus another $200 in stock), but we need an extra $1500 to get the attention of potential investors and take the brand to the heights we know it can reach.
  • The look of naturalREBEL products is constantly evolving as we strive to improve the professionalism of the brand. Funds will assist with new packaging and labels.
  • We're looking to approach high-end Spa locations in Johannesburg and Cape Town and want to up our game with a professional trial package, that gets them seriously interested.
  • Although we source fair trade and organic components. naturalREBEL products are themselves not certified as Fair Trade and organic. This certification is a NEED that is very close to our hearts.

Introducing Curious Scrubs

  • Moroccan Tea and Senegalese Coconut Sugar Scrub

A great natural hand and body scrub, Moroccan black tea infuses the skin with antioxidants, Senegalese Coconut Sugar exfoliates and moisturizes and indulgent lemongrass scents the experience.

  • Ethiopian Coffee Based Body Scrub 
The caffeine diminishes the appearance of cellulite and the essential oils will hydrate and smooth your skin to perfection. We have three scented varieties; Ylang Ylang, Sweet Orange and Lavender.

  • Nigerian Jollof Rice Based Body Scrub

Rice is a rich source of vitamin B and aids in skin cell regeneration while maintaining the skins natural oil balance. Bentonite clay absorbs toxins which are expelled through the skin. This amazing scrub is complemented by vitamin E and sweet almond oil and scented with Cedarwood.

  • Cinnamon and  Senegalese Coconut Sugar Scrub

Cinnamon is a natural acne treatment, antiseptic, cleanses pores and stimulates blood vessels on surface of the skin. Senegalese Coconut Sugar exfoliates and moisturizes and Cinnamon Essential scents the experience.

The Impact: Part 1

Why should you care...

  • Europe bans 1,371 toxic chemicals from their personal care products and the US bans only 11?
  • The FDA does not regulate the personal care products industry and hopes that cosmetic companies will do their due diligence and issue safe products?
  • “safe”, “organic” and “natural” does not mean your products do not contain any toxic chemicals as well?
  • 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in their lifetime, 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys are identified with autism spectrum disorder in the US, and that Alzheimer's is up 500% in the past 20 years?
  • According to the President’s Cancer Panel only 10% of cancer is genetic and 90% is caused by environmental factors?
  • Your personal and home care products (from shampoo to antibacterial wipes to makeup) contain carcinogenic ingredients, neurotoxins, endocrine disruptors and allergens that could be downright hazardous to your health?

    Impact: Part 2

    The continued growth of naturalREBEL is very close to our hearts and continues to be all that we focus on. Two members of the teams work fulltime on the business, growing the brand and learning what skills need to be learnt to make it a success.
    • Your contributions help us realise a dream and take us into a culture that is not all that prevalent in South Africa. That is the culture of Entrepreneurship.
    • We want to make a socially and environmentally responsible statement by proving that we can provide amazing products in an affordable way that supports the greater good. 
    • We have had extremely positive responses and great support from our friends, family and community. And really great feedback from customers, some reviews are on the site.

    Risks & Challenges

    We are a team of verified workaholics and will work through every obstacle that is thrown at us to make sure things get done!
