Cordial Organics: The New Generation of CBD Oil Beauty Products
We were lucky enough to attend, Founder Made a consumer discovery show highlighting all the latest businesses and brands in the beauty industry. While there were a lot of great products, we were drawn to Cordial Organics a company started by Shelly Phegley and Desi McKinnon.
For those who suffer from chronic pain, companies like Cordial Organics can help drastically. We were impressed by Shelly & Desi, two women creating a brand and reliable beauty products in a predominantly male field. We chatted with the two founders about career, passion, and of course, CBD.
Women.com: Why the cannabis industry? What brought you to CBD and beauty?
Cordial Organics: We revere the power of plant medicine. Cannabis is a plant with so much to offer in the healing space and as a solution to some of the environmental concerns we face today. The more we studied CBD, the clearer it became to introduce CBD to beauty products. We had no reservations or nervousness about CBD and beauty because we feel rooted in our vision and purpose.
WDC: What were some initial hurdles you had to jump through?
CO: The biggest challenges all CBD businesses face is the logistics of legalization and banking. This is all sorting itself out thanks to some progressive minds in D.C., but it has definitely been a challenge and barrier to entry. We have navigated these challenges with a resilient spirit and innovation.
WDC: What was your “a-ha” moment?
CO: It happened early on in the research and development stage when we started seeing results from initial formulations. Our family members and community started giving us feedback that supported our intention of promoting well-being.
WDC: How did you take your brand, Cordial Organics, into where it is today?
CO: We stand where we stand today as a result of long hours, a lot of hustling, and passion. We want to keep on doing what we are doing every day: Serving our communities and formulating products that promote well-being. We are determined to do more of it on a larger scale in five years!
