The Honey Pot Company is trending in the streets of Twitter and it ain’t sweet.
The company, founded by Beatrice Dixon, became wildly popular for its plant-based feminine hygiene products that provided women with healthy alternatives to feminine care.
Beatrice was suffering from an ongoing case of bacterial vaginosis and nothing the doctors recommended worked.
Her grandmother came to her in a dream and she gave Beatrice a list of ingredients and told her what to do.
And that’s how Honey Pot was born.
The product blew up and is now available in Walmart, Target, and other major retailers.
Early on, Beatrice Dixon made it very clear that her ultimate goal was to take the company she created with a $21,000 loan and sell it.
Honey Pot is currently trending in the streets of social media as consumers express their disappointment with the laundry list of new ingredients in a product that was once organic.
A TikToker recently rang the alarm on the products with this video.
When one woman on Twitter questioned why they changed the ingredients in their feminine wash, The Honey Pot Co official Twitter account responded:
Hi! We understand seeing new ingredients on the back of your wash bottle could be confusing but we’re here to help.
We captured feedback and insights from our amazing community to build upon the formula for our washes and designed a new preservative system to uphold the quality of our washes.
Propylene Glycol, phenoxyethanol, and sodium benzoate are widely used to do just that.
Phenoxyethanol has anti-microbial properties to keep products stable, and sodium benzoate supports ingredients designed for pH balancing for a longer period of time.
In addition to its antimicrobial properties, Propylene Glycol also functions as a humectant which can support the moisture profile of a product.
Our washes are dermatologist-approved, kind to and safe for skin and continue to not have any added parabens, dioxides or sulfates.
