We’re really excited about having you in our September Box; please tell us how Sashapure got its start?
Our founders were on the hunt for a sustainable ingredient that would be healing and nurturing across categories, from hair, skin and beyond. After a two-year search, they found the Sacha Inchi Seed, which can be pressed into an oil that has amazing properties for your whole body inside and out. Coming from past experience in the hair care business, we created Sashapure, a line of high-quality effective products that leaves hair looking, feeling and smelling amazing!
Tell us about Sachi Inchi Oil.
To create the most effective hair and skin products possible, we knew we had to use the healthiest ingredients, which is why Sashapure’s key ingredient, USDA Certified Organic Sasha Inchi Oil, is the foundation of all our formulas. Our cold-pressed virgin Sacha Inchi Oil is a 3,000-year-old Peruvian Amazon super food that contains the nutrients vital for hydrated, natural hair, and well-nourished, resilient skin. The oil is light in nature, making it absorb easily and quickly into the hair and nails. This makes it exceptional in hair products, facial serums, creams and lotions. Sacha Inchi has 48% more healing power than Argan Oil, 17 times more omegas 3 & 6 than wild salmon, and the highest amount of unsaturated fatty acids on the market.
You’re pretty new to the market, and you’ve already created a lot of buzz about your product, what has been your key to success thus far?
Our success thus far has come from getting the stamp of approval from what we call "everyday influencers." These are the women you see everyday with awesome hair. You see them at work, school, in the grocery store, out on the town, and all over social media. They are the girls that everyone stops to ask "which products do you use?" and without even knowing it, they help to educate women in their community on how to care for their curls. With curlfriends like these, we're destined to win!
