Today we’d like to introduce you to Frankie Belmain.
Frankie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was searching the Internet for help in growing my eyelashes. I found some products with simple ingredients so i thought I would try to make it myself. I made my first batch and had some good results. I posted my experience on Facebook and friends wanted me to make them some too. I started making other natural, do-it-yourself beauty products as well and my following grew. I started selling online and Organicrime was born. The name has Organic as my products are all natural and Crime as it makes you so beautiful it must be a Crime! I enjoy discovering ingredients that are great for the skin and hair and develop products that I can share with others. I make all of the products myself in my kitchen. I package and ship them with the help of my mom Mercedes and my husband Daniel. My business has grown and I ship products to beautiful people all over North America!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have been many challenges along the way. Products that don’t turn out the way I want.
Trial and error. Shipping costs. Finding graphic designers for my logos and product labels, and keeping them! Just to name a few. Also bookkeeper is a constant chore. I would say my biggest challenge is keeping up with customer orders. As I do almost all of the work myself it can be daunting to keep up and meet customer fulfillment. It seems like I am always behind. But I guess that is a good problem to have!
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Organicrime creates homemade, all natural products for the skin and hair. Using only the finest ingredients and essential oils to make you a more beautiful you! My number one selling product is my eyelash and eyebrow growth serum. I have received fantastic reviews of all of my products sold on Etsy. I make it natural and I make it good!
What were you like growing up?
I was a very fun and popular girl growing up. I always tried to be kind and nice to everyone. I loved having fun swimming, going to parks, listening to music and hanging out with my friends. I have always loved animals and have had cats, dogs, rabbits, turtles and chickens!
