More Than a Beauty Brand
Glam Body Scrubs
We all can name hundreds of beauty brands but not all are created equal. Glam Body Scrubs was able to lock in deals with Walmart and Meijer stores in the past year. To achieve that during these unprecedented times in the world is a testament to this brand’s perseverance.
The luxury scrubs come in several scents like coffee craze, perfect peppermint, mad about mango and bubblin’ brown sugar. The products have several 5 star reviews on Walmart.com to back up the company’s claims that the scrubs will leave you and your skin feeling amazing.
While the products themselves are amazing the owner is extraordinary in her own right.
Glam Body Scrubs founder, Tiffany Cartwright, is a former Assistant Attorney General and former Administrative Law Judge for the State of Michigan who was laid off in 2012 due to State budget cuts. She returned in 2015 but was again released in 2016. “I went from University of Michigan Law School, Assistant Attorney General and Administrative Law Judge to unemployed, no health insurance, no money, and a bridge card. I lost everything!” says Cartwright.
Determined not to give up, she developed a line of body scrubs mixing natural ingredients she started using to treat her daughter’s eczema. For years she had given the scrubs out as birthday, Mother’s Day, and holiday gifts but never dreamed she’d be sharing those same scrubs with customers throughout the country. “This is truly a dream come true!” says Cartwright.
Cartwright successfully pitched her body scrubs in Bentonville, AR, at the Walmart Open Call, an annual initiative targeting products made in the U.S. “When my buyer said yes, I literally cried..they had no idea what I went through just to get there” Cartwright shares. She then launched a campaign called “help a sister out” this is to spread the word and encourage people to buy her products to make sure her small business keeps the opportunity to be loved on Walmart shelves. The campaign was a success!
This weekend G.L.A.M Body Scrubs will hit shelves in hundreds of Walmart locations!
New York, Texas, Maryland and New Jersey are just a few states that have locations where the scrubs can be purchased. Click here for a store locator.
G.L.A.M Body Scrubs and Tiffany have been featured on her local Detroit News as well as national publications such as Entrepreneur Magazine. Tiffany has huge goals for her brand and we are excited to see her reach each one of them!
With dozens of genuine five star ratings online this isn’t just a feel-good story but a feel good product. Based on the early reception of her products and all the media attention the scrubs are projected to be a massive success.
According to an interview she recently did with Black Enterprise, Cartwright said she is motivated by the realization that people are depending on her to “get it right.” When entrepreneurs step out, they are representing “us” as a community. Future opportunities for others will be contingent upon what someone either does or fails to do.
“Right now I’m working on opening a manufacturing facility in the city of Detroit. I have a building already. They’re working on it as we speak, but I want to hire women in Detroit who are returning citizens, or (who) have been victimized by domestic violence and human trafficking.”
With it being domestic violence awareness month it is the perfect time to support a brand who helps victims of DV.
