Small Business Saturday: November 30th

 It’s small business Saturday fab squad!

I’m Melanie Cruickshank, I grew up on a small farm outside of Oshawa and I founded da lish back in 2006 in Toronto. .

I have struggled with horrible acne my entire childhood, teens and young adulthood. It has always been my mission to find the best products possible for my skin and boost my confidence. .

I had an opportunity to go back to school and learn the chemistry of natural cosmetic making. I put both me and my Mother Rosemary through school and started re creating my favourite high end conventional brands but without the harsh chemicals and unnecessary harmful ingredients.

da lish has come along way since my days of making my products in my kitchen! We have re-branded a few times, multiple upgrades to our website and this past July switched over to Shopify. .

I’ve had many highlights such as collaborating with @barbie for the 60th anniversary which was a personal dream come true as I’m a die hard Barbie fan. My Mother has been collecting then since before I was born. .

I am beyond grateful for the friends and people I’ve met along the way. I’m proud of the community we’ve built and continue to grow. I’m so inspired by so many of you. 

Most importantly - things are really just getting started. The best is yet to come and I couldn’t be more excited for the future and all the fab plans in place. .

I’m a real person and when you support da lish you’re not just supporting my dream & vision of clean beauty but many other local businesses from our packaging suppliers, manufacture which we pay livable wages, over 80% of our raw ingredients are produced in Canada and come from local suppliers. .

My vision of success is to be happy, share the clean products that have helped me so much with feeling good, looking my best and most importantly not worrying what’s going into my body. .

Thank you all for supporting a small business.
Melanie 💋
