It's International Women's Day and we have been speaking to some of our brilliant female-led businesses on the Good Liverpool platform. One of these amazing indy's is Wild Mama. Created by Nat & Georgie, their natural, sustainable skincare products are making waves in the Merseyside area! We sat down with both Nat & Georgie to hear what each of them had to say on this special day.
We love showing our customers the faces behind the businesses, tell us more about yourself
Tell us about your business
With backgrounds in health and beauty, Wild Mama was born from the love of making homemade beauty products for ourselves, friends and family and from this Wild Mama blossomed into something that could be shared with everyone.
Did you always think that one day you would be running your own business?
We were already running our own businesses before Wild Mama was born, but it wasn’t until we went on a soap making course together that we realised that we could actually create something from this experience. As soon as we’d finished the course we knew that we would start a natural skincare venture together.
If any, what challenges have you experienced as a woman in business?
Since launching Wild Mama we have been extremely lucky with the ongoing support around us. From friends, family, new customers, local suppliers and online platforms. Naturally our brand attracts a lot of women, however we get a lot of positive feedback from men who particularly love our deodorant bars.
What advice would you give to other women starting out in business?
Do your research and start a business from something you’re passionate about and if you’ve been wanting to start a new venture for a while, just go for it. Times are tough right now but stay positive…go with your gut. No regrets.
Where do you see your business going next?
We’re really looking forward to connecting and collaborating with other small businesses as it’s such a lovely community. Times are strange right now but we’re always brainstorming new ideas for future products and still have some new fragrances to share.
