Business: JGL Brands
Products: Egg-shaped soap
I started as a hobbyist egg farmer north of Chelsea, MI. Named the business Just Got Laid and liked the name so much, I decided to start a branding company, specifically personal care. Soap is the first launched product. More items in development. Totally fun name and logo, great packaging and quality product.

Business: Tiani Body Care
Products: Natural Body Care
I launched Tiani Body Care after obtaining a degree in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology and am the formulator of all of Tiani Body Care products. It has been an exciting journey and is the perfect combination of sharing my love for science, supporting our local community, and living a healthy life. Our primary goal is to create safe and quality products made with several local ingredients. We source many fresh ingredients from farms/small businesses in Michigan and use non-toxic ingredients that are suitable for sensitive skin. We offer a large variety of natural soaps and moisturizers that are made with plant-based ingredients, scented with pure essential oils, and are loved by many households!
