Upon launching this major undertaking, she envisioned expanding marketability of the Clo-vée product line to include [but not limited to] three distinct consumers groups: (1) those who prefer organic products; (2) individuals who have sensitive skin; and, (3) the ever growing population of chemical allergies sufferers.
Clo-vée’s mission is to promote skin wellness through chemical free bath and body products while also providing outstanding customer service.

Tushea Butter Cream Products
TuShea Butter Company launched in 2011 by Terran Dampier-Simmons. She fell in love with shea butter in 2005 after deciding to go chemical free. By 2008 she had decided that regular shea butter, though great, wasn’t enough. She started to research the proper ingredients and prepared her first batch of TuShea Butter Cream. What initially was a product that her family and friends loved, has turned into a highly sought after product in her community.
In October of 2010 a friend offered to buy the product and thought it would be a good idea to sale such a fantastic product. She explained that she has noticed a change in her skin. It was a lot softer, acne, dark spots and even stretch marks started to fade away. In January 2011, TuShea Butter Company was launched with TuShea Butter Cream as it’s first product. TuShea Butter Cream is a 100% natural product that offers all the benefits of shea butter with an added benefit of a variety to scents! To visit her site, click here.
