Today we’d like to introduce you to EnJunaya Canton.
Thanks for sharing your story with us EnJunaya. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
Zuhuri Beauty was created out of desperation and pain. It was imperative for me to become a naturalist at a very difficult time in my life. I was once 255 pounds, and I had not only 18 large fibroids, but I had reoccurring viral infections, body aches, migraines, and other conditions associated with obesity and many that were unexplained.
My 18 large fibroids caused an enormous amount of physical pain, depression, and anxiety. I did not want to be like my mother and friends and get a hysterectomy. I decided enough was enough. I learned about Clean Eating and the toxic ingredients in personal hygiene products. I not only decided to become a Vegan and Eat Clean but to also begin making my own natural skin care products to help reduce the toxins in my body. I used my background as a Chemistry major and formulas from my grandmother to help me begin formulating my products.
I have had numerous challenges as a Founder, CEO and Skin Care Formulator for Zuhuri Beauty. I left a business making six figures, invested a lot of my own money, had three business partners, and got taken advantage of numerous times. Through the many trials, I always knew and know even more so now, that Zuhuri Beauty is meant to have it’s SKIN FOOD everywhere, and those trials only made me be more strategic and continue to go forward.
My first product the Glow Girl Beauty Oil Serum for Face, Body and Hair was pitched to Walmart almost four years ago and successfully accepted on their platform. It remains to be our top selling product. Our products are available on Amazon (as PRIME), they can be purchased at wholesale at Faire.com, and we are partners with Macy’s in their Marketplace. We currently have three products in the Lenox Mall Macy’s in Atlanta, Georgia and also in the Westminster Macy’s in Westminster, California.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think the biggest struggles along the way have been thinking I will not be able to succeed because I do not have the financial backing of family or a private investor. I had to file bankruptcy twice, due to a relationship. Having a bankruptcy on your credit makes it difficult to approach people for funding. Thankfully, I was able to take that experience and learn not only how to use money differently, but also to find organizations that had resources to help me to still continue on this path and grow my business.
I am grateful to my SBA program in Los Angeles and their partners who have not only helped me financially with having a bankruptcy but also assisting me with information on how to run a successful business. It is hard to delegate tasks for your BABY. I am getting a lot better at that because I realize I can’t do it all and I have to have people help me as I continue to grow.
I have had MANY sleepless nights, and I have had to work a lot of jobs I would have never done if I didn’t have to in order to fund my business.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Zuhuri Beauty – what should we know?
At Zuhuri Beauty we make SKIN FOOD. 100% all natural and affordable skin care products for women, men, and youth. I am the Founder, CEO and Skin Care Formulator.
