Founder Diva Samai is an alumnus of the University of the District of Columbia. She majored in Latin American Studies with a minor in Spanish and graduated Cum Laude. Always an entrepreneur Samai started selling candy when she was in elementary and high school. She is a former White House Intern and currently works as a contractor in Washington, DC. "Beauty is a lifestyle, I wanted to create a company that helps women feel good by providing wonderful products that are effective while putting a smile on faces. Life should be about fun, looking, feeling and smelling good!" Her herbal lip balm does just that as the balm is infused with the sweet smell of Honey, Jasmine & Pineapple.
As a millennial facing the job market Samai faced years of unemployment and underemployment after she graduated college and completed a year of graduate school at Howard University. However, this did not deter Samai. She believed in her product so much she worked two minimum wage jobs seven days a week to get funding for her lip balm.
Satin Lip Conditioner was originally released in 2015 under Samai's former company Lulu Bella Womens Boutique which was a women's online boutique. Samai decided to continue pursuing her dream by revamping her brand and giving it a second go around in the Fall of 2018. Named for both of Samai's maternal great great grand mothers Tevia Rose continues LuLu Bella's legacy to provide beautiful products for women. LuLu Bella had celebrity cliental from legendary R&B Singer Jody Watley, Real House Wives of New York City LuAnn de Lesseps and Essence Magazine Editor & Chief Vanessa K. De Luca.
Moreover, actress and star of Bravo's Odd Mom Out Jill Kargman and Real House Wife of Potomac Katie Rost are fans of Satin Lip Conditioner.
As Tevia Rose paves her way to new beginnings she is proud to help all women feel & know they are beautiful!
All the best,
