When did the brand get its start?
The brand started out as an innocent conversation between a doctor and a diva on a girl’s trip in 2016. Don't all great stories begin this way? (Hey, just roll with us, here!) When OB/GYN, Dr. Barb and ex-Pharmaceutical Sales Consultant turned naturalista, Kimba (AKA The Natural Diva), met for the very first time, there was no denying, their chemistry was instantaneous. Dr. Barb and The Natural Diva began swapping ideas and sharing insights on chemical-free solutions to the feminine care issues we're all so familiar with. There you have it, from that innocent conversation, where ideas flowed like a fine wine at a dinner party, BK Naturals was born. Our mission is to whip up effective, yet gentle, naturally based feminine care products, created by women, for women. The rest, they say, is Kushae™.
What’s the inspiration behind the name Kushae?
Oddly enough our co-founder Kimba “The Natural Diva” started a brain storming session with the word “coochie”. Dr. Barb suggested they “French-ify” it…and the name Kushae (Koo-shay) was born!
What inspired your product line?
Dr. Barb is a Board Certified OB/GYN and has been caring for women for over 20 years. She is also a breast cancer survivor, who wanted to create a line that would continue to provide the best care for women’s health and not contain ingredients that could harm them or potentially be linked to cancer.
Kimba “The Natural Diva” spent 15 years as a pharmaceutical sales executive and knew how toxic modern day medications and over the counter products could be. When she decided to create a healthier, natural lifestyle for herself, she too, wanted to see Kushae become an important part of the hygiene regimen for all women who also wanted to live healthier and natural lifestyles.
Tell us about the importance of using natural products.
60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream, and yet women on average put 515 chemicals on their bodies every single day, unknowingly. Scientific evidence states, that there is a link between common ingredients like parabens and cancer. It is critical that women become more vigilant about what they put both in and on their bodies.
