Giving entrepreneurs the resources they need to grow & succeed.
Antanaja Moore left the 9-5 to work on her business full-time! Word cannot explain how proud we are of the dedication & courage a step like this takes and we are all so proud of you.
Antanaja started Moore Organic Beauty just months ago after searching for all natural products to help nourish her skin. She tried several products that actually made her skin worse, leaving it dry & scaly.
Like every good entrepreneur, she decided that since she could not find what she was looking for, she began to experiment, research, & make it herself, knowing exactly what was going into the product.
Moore Organic Beauty was officially licensed as an LLC by Get Local on November 4, 2022. She not only sells amazing body butter, body scrub, & lip chap, but all of her products are vegan AND cruelty-free. Her products work well with all skin types and are guaranteed to moisture your skin and have it feeling radiant - even in the gloomy upstate winter.
