Business Name: Theia Kathari Website: www.theiakathari.ca Established: 2019
Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
At Theia Kathari, I make all-natural bath and body products by hand, products include soaps, bath bombs, Epsom salts, bath milk, body butter, bath melts and lip balm.
Ingredients used are coconut oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, Shea butter, olive oil and grape seed oil, plus other natural ingredients for colour and scent
With the local maker community continuing to grow, what makes you stand out from the rest?
I suppose I’m humble in this area, but I guess I price my products accordingly and fairly, and that’s why people have bought from me!
What made you realize that you had a product that could be shared with others?
When I shared products with my family and friends and all raved about it! Then I started advertising and got other customers and other people raving about my products!
What has been your biggest success as a maker? Biggest struggle you’ve overcome?
I just love helping people, we have several skin issues in my family and that’s why i started making stuff in the first place, but to help others that also have issues makes my heart feel good
I had to make sure my product was tested thoroughly before I let anyone even test it, so I went through a lot of self-testing.
Any advice that you would tell someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Don’t give up, there will be some trying days, but if you can get past those, you will have the best days as well, and soon the best days will outnumber the bad!
Please share any upcoming events (physical events, virtual sales, etc.) that you think Winnipeggers would be interested in!
Just keep an eye on my website and social media!
