Roundup: Indie Beauty LA 2019

Roundup: Indie Beauty LA 2019

Rosebud Woman was thrilled to be at the Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) in Los Angeles last week. It took place at a floral-filled, exquisitely designed venue, with 140+ exciting companies. We had our own space there, and were showcased as part of Shen Beauty’s curated picks. We found it encouraging to see the majority of brands at the event taking a natural, plant-based approach to skincare. This reaffirms our view that our largest organ deserves intention in the ingredients we place upon it!

The women you know and love on our team—Michelle, Brittney, Anna, and Samantha— represented us. They discussed the emerging intimate care space, and spoke about the importance of approaching women’s needs holistically, over the course of our monthly and life cycles. We are right at the start of an exciting conversation—and Rosebud Woman was the singular voice addressing specific needs such as irritation and inflammation, dryness, lack of stimulation, and on-the-go cleansing.  

We were delighted to see other “by-women-for-women” brands joining us with adjacent offerings!  We want to tell you about them, and continue a long-overdue discussion that serves to normalize all things sensual and sexual, so that every part of our bodies receives the care and attention it needs.

Here are a few of our favorites from the show:

Saalt:  Period care Simplified 
Reusable menstrual cups 
Why we like it: Saalt makes an organic, reusable soft silicone cup worn internally like a tampon that collects, rather than absorbs, your period. It’s non toxic, better for your body and the environment.

Dame: Toys, for Sex 
Elegantly designed sexual enhancers 
Why we like it: Dame creates research-based sex toys for women that are tinkered and tested based on feedback from real woman. Their innovative shapes, versatile functions, and beautiful colors make these products our number one choice to enhance any erotic experience!>

Kiskanu: CBD lubricant 
Sensual lubricant
Why we like it: Kiskanu creates a high-quality CBD intimacy oil for deeper relaxation and pleasure. Made in a base of sunflower, coconut, and jojoba oils with calendula, it’s a great add-on to self or partner touch. (Note: not latex compatible)
