BHM: What was your inspiration for starting Gaisie Body Essentials?
Sebrina: I’ve been making beauty care products as a hobby for years. I sometimes wondered though, what it would be like to have my own business that allowed me to do something I was really passionate about? However, I didn’t seriously consider doing it until my parents suggested I try making that dream become a reality. This journey that I’ve been on since creating Gaisie Body Essentials has been a wonderful experience for me, so I want to publicly say thank you to Kenneth and Barbara Gaisie for always believing in me!!!
BHM: You have a line of body, face and hair products. Tell us about your products:
Sebrina: Gaisie Body Essentials’ mission is to always create products that use quality ingredients in all of its beauty products because it is simply the right thing to do. Ingredients that can be found in my beauty care lines are natural oils and butters, botanical extracts and essential oils. Also, these products can be used on multiple skin and hair types.
BHM: Do you think it is important for products to contain natural ingredients and if so, why?
Sebrina: I definitely think that it’s important for products to contain natural ingredients. Once I started incorporating more natural ingredients into my beauty care regimen, I could see how it positively affected the health of my skin and hair. Products that contained natural ingredients actually absorbed into my skin and hair. Also my skin and hair stayed moisturized and softer for longer periods of time.
BHM: Your products work best on what type of hair? Natural? Relaxed? All hair types?
Sebrina: The hair care products are great for people with natural and relaxed hair. Also, many of the hair products can be used on all hair types.
BHM: Can someone with sensitive skin use your body and face care products?
Sebrina: Many of the body and face care products can be used by all skin types, including people with sensitive skin. If someone suffers from issues like nut allergies though, they should stay away from the products that contain nut oils and butters.
BHM: Where can people find your products?
Sebrina: People can find my entire product line by visiting my website, www.GaisieBodyEssentials.com. They also have the option of placing orders through the website (or by telephone 646-460-1883, Monday – Friday, 9AM–5PM EST).
BHM: Are there any new plans/projects/events in the works?
Sebrina: New plans are definitely in the works for all aspects of my beauty care business! I’m currently working on the next collections that will be added to my body care line. I want to be able to offer my customers multiple scenting options, which I’ll do with these new products. After that I’ll introduce the next set of products to my hair and facial care lines.
BHM: Thank you so much for allowing BlackHairMedia to interview you about your product line.
Sebrina: I appreciate BlackHairMedia for giving a small business owner like me the opportunity to speak about my beauty care line.
