Homegrown firm brings out the best in beauty-A A +A
Sunday, May 4, 2014
A HOMEGROWN company is now taking skin care regimen to a higher level as it vows to bring out the best in every Filipina's beauty.
BN Whitening Shoppe was born out of Bianca Patricia Naranjo's passion toward obtaining and maintaining flawless white skin.
"Everyone wants to have the best in everything, may it be in career, good life, physical appearance, among others. Most of us are into skin caring goals that can satisfy us and at the same time won't hurt our budget," she said.
Thus, the birth of BN Whitening Shoppe in 2008.
Bianca said BN whitening products have proven over the years that being beautiful with gorgeous-looking skin must not only be enjoyed by the rich and famous.
Meanwhile, older sibling Julie said she really salutes her sister's determination to start her own business and make it grow as days go by.
Julie said that although Bianca is not a graduate of any business-related course, she has managed to make ends meet and finally develop a venture that has definitely become a hit among Filipino women.
So, how did Bianca get the motivation to go into such kind of business?
According to Julie, Bianca used to resell whitening soaps while still a student. When already out of college due to some reasons, Bianca attended some seminars and trainings on soap-making here and in Manila.
While pregnant, the 22-year-old Bianca then started producing her very own whitening soap and lotion and eventually expanded to other products such as facial mask, whitening cream, acne gel and toner, milk scrub, exfoliant, and even to scar gel and cream.
Now at 27, Bianca can already be considered successful in her chosen line of business. Her secret? Julie narrated that her sister's love toward her business, employees, and customers is her greatest asset.
"Bianca is the perfect endorser of her products," Julie said.
Julie shared that Bianca grew up to have dark skin and with acne all over her face, but right now, one can no longer see traces of the "old" Bianca.
"As you can see, she's already so fair and flawless," she said.
As a newbie in the business who is facing numerous established competitors with so much funds for advertising and marketing strategies, BN Whitening Shoppe is proud to say that it has gained popularity because of their clients' testimonies.
"Our clientele has grown this big because of word-of-mouth. And we at BN Whitening Shoppe truly commits that we will continue to provide quality and effective products to our clients," she said.
BN Whitening Shoppe is now into franchising. In fact, Julie has her own franchise at Door 35 EC Business Center, CM Recto St., Davao City.
Those who are interested to get a franchise of BN Whitening Shoppe may visit their main office at Door 1 2nd floor, BLVD Center Bldg., corner Artiaga and Quezon Boulevard Sts., Davao Cityor contact them at 304-0966.
The company now operates a kiosk at Gaisano Mall of Davao and some branches at Gaisano Mall of Toril, Tagum and Zamboanga. (NCB)
