We Are Featured in Beauty Independent!
Posted: Sep 29 2017
We are honoured to be featured in the latest edition of Beauty Independent. Beauty Independent is a digital publication dedicated to the pioneering entrepreneurs pushing the beauty industry to new heights. We were one of nine amazing beauty entrepreneurs and founders who produce in small batches. We were all asked:
How do you handle the challenges of inventory, expiration dates, and quality control?
This is a loaded question and has been one of our biggest challenges. There are a lot of moving parts that can create a domino effect and this often stems from cashflow (chicken) and inventory (egg) which is always a chicken and egg kind of situation. We've found that the best tool while navigating the challenge of inventory, expiration dates and quality control has been building strong relationships with manufacturing partners, suppliers, and everyone in-between. Problems happen, and like the saying goes “anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” We've found that our biggest assets lay with those partners that work with us to learn new ways to manage these ever-changing challenges.
