We Are Onyx
For founders Myriam Bocobza and Delali Kpodzo, the launch of We Are Onyx in January 2013 were many long, but exciting months in the making. With a site loaded with advice from industry experts like Felicia Leatherwood, video tutorials, and licensed dermatologists, it is their hope that it will become an integrated one-stop shop for customers.
“We want to make sure we know what we’re talking about,” says Myriam. “We want to teach women how to take care of themselves, but [in a way] so that it won’t be harmful to them.”
The details: We Are Onyx is a $20 a month subscription. For that fee you receive four travel size products of your choosing (yep, that’s right you get to pick) and one surprise item in the mail. As of now, there are a limited number of spots available for packages per month. Some of the brands they currently partner with are Dr. Miracles, Kinky-Curly and Shea Radiance, with new signees to be announced.
