For someone unfamiliar with the Bullfrogs & Butterflies Company, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
We are a mom-run business that cares about each and every belly our cream is slathered onto! I wish I had the time to devote to making us a billion dollar company overnight, but that’s not going to happen. I’ve treated my flagship product as my fifth child, nurturing it through every process. Not everyone is going to love your product, but I can guarantee you I do! I LOVE my cream! I started this company from the ground up while also being a stay-at-home mom. I know the need to have a trustworthy product you can count on, because life is too busy and chaotic to have to worry about the little things.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
I started my company around 2.5 years ago. I used my makeup artist background and made my own stretch mark cream when I was pregnant, and the product actually worked! I would have to say evolving has been a slow process, as I knew from the beginning what I wanted and how I wanted the company to grow. I spent so much time perfecting this one cream until it was just right. I have had offers for ways to quickly increase my line with more products, but that would not be okay with me. When I design the next product, my clients can be sure that I have mixed, tested, and tried that product and that I have my seal of approval on it.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from the Bullfrogs & Butterflies Company?
We currently only carry our flagship product, our Stretch Mark Prevention Cream. I am very excited to be working on a few more products, but those are not ready yet!
What sets the Bullfrogs & Butterflies Company apart in the maternity marketplace?
When I was pregnant my biggest issue with my skin was how itchy it became the bigger I got. I had never heard anyone talk about this issue. When I designed my cream I knew I needed something that would stop the itching in its tracks, and I was able to achieve this! I want a line of products that do multiple things in one bottle. My product not only prevents stretch marks, but it’s anti-itch as well. I have even put the cream on my kids’ bug bites! It’s an all- around kind of cream!
What can parents expect from the Bullfrogs & Butterflies Company at the New York Baby Show?
I want everyone to experience my cream, and to this end I am heavily discounting the product for the show so everyone can take home a bottle or two to try!
