Meet Porsha Beasley of Phoenix Mantra

Today we’d like to introduce you to Porsha Beasley.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Phoenix Mantra is the manifestation of a 20-year obsession with creating beauty from nature. I started crafting products at the age of 13. I always loved the tiny decorative perfumes and scented candles I would see in specialty stores and I was eager to try my hand in making blends of my own.

I began gifting friends and family with my products for Holidays and special events and quickly began receiving requests for more of the products. It was then (10 years ago) that I started selling my products to the public. Over the years, I have focused on making Phoenix Mantra the “go-to” brand for sustainable, natural, luxurious beauty and hygiene products.

Has it been a smooth road?
The road to creating Phoenix Mantra has been relatively smooth considering. The primary struggle so far has been getting the brand out there. Getting the brand on platforms that are seen by the masses. One other obstacle was in sustainable packaging. I wanted everything about my products to be natural and sustainable; including the packaging.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Phoenix Mantra story. Tell us more about the business.
Phoenix Mantra is a botanical boutique that specializes in sustainably handcrafted, natural beauty and spa products. The goal is to provide practical products that heal and pamper all at the same time. Phoenix Mantra is more than just body oils and other items that smell good… its a vibe! These are lifestyle products!

What Phoenix Mantra is most popular for its botanical body oils, bronzers and body polishers! The botanical body oils and bronzers are blends of various essential oils and herbs which are actually visibly incorporated inside the bottle. Because the oils are not diluted they permeate the skin keeping you soft and moisturized throughout the day without the greasy feeling. The herb and essential oil blends are activated by body heat, thus keeping the skin perfectly fragrant throughout the day. The bronzers come in various hues to best accent your complexion. Like the original botanical body oil, the bronzer soaks into your skin, keeping you fragrant, moisturized and glowing (without ruining your clothes).

The body polishers are bliss in a jar! The body polishers come in 11 tantalizing essential oil/herb blends. These polishers will invigorate the senses while buffing away dull skin; leaving the skin silky smooth and glowing. Everyone’s favorite seems to be “Coconut Coffee”… the perfect addition to your morning shower!

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
The natural beauty product industry is growing rapidly! With a growing awareness of the damages, harmful ingredients can cause even when just placed on the skin; I foresee the industry skyrocketing over the next 5-10 years as consumers begin to require safer, more natural products.

I am thinking there will be even more variety in product choices and hopefully even more sustainable packaging options. I mean who wouldn’t want packaging that can be reused for a different purpose later?
