A WAY OUT OF NO WAY 💪🏾

About a year ago NYC ordered all non-essential businesses to close indefinitely. At the time we were experiencing a surge in orders and working around the clock to fill them. Instead of shutting down completely, I turned off all our ads and moved our entire operation to my apartment in Brooklyn — where I was quarantining with my three young children.

Keeping the business afloat seemed impossible at the time, but I truly believe BGLH Marketplace customers are some of the best in the world. Customers were patient, kind and supportive as I filled orders in between doing remote learning with my kids. Many of you placed extra orders to ensure we wouldn’t go out of business, and we didn’t. 2020 was our highest sales year to date, and almost doubled our 2019 revenue. I found these photos from that time and wanted to share them with you all.

Production station set up in my bedroom.

Completed packages in my hallway waiting for USPS pick up.

Completed packages left in the hallway of my building so mail carriers could collect them no-contact.

You all kept this business going through one of the most uncertain times in modern history. I want to thank you for that!

“One of my biggest regrets in life is only now using this product. I am Middle Eastern and for the longest time I assumed shea butter was solely used for black hair so I never really considered it. It wasn’t until I was sitting next to one of my friends and I noticed her skin was so soft, and she told me it was from this product. It has been life-changing! I have dry skin and live in a harsh MI climate and when I tell you guys this product makes me look so hydrated and supple.” — Asma on Vanilla Whipped Shea Butter
