Today we’d like to introduce you to Annmarie Andaluz.
Annmarie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I always knew I wanted to own a business or to be an entrepreneur and be a part of something that I was truly passionate about. However, my story on how PHreshBox came about was with no intent on making it a business. I am a mother of three and during my pregnancy and after my 3rd child was born, I kept going to the Obgyn because I would suffer from BV (imbalanced PH) and had difficulties maintaining my wetness during intercourse and I didn’t know why. After, several attempts of getting rid of the bad bacteria using traditional medicine, I became frustrated when it continued to come back. I need to stop trying to cure this problem and just prevent it from happening in the 1st place. I did some research and noticed soap may cause this imbalance. I began searching for “natural PH balancing wash” to help me. They did not work!!! So, I decided, forget this I’m going to make my own wash. While doing research on ingredients, I came across an article by Dr. JACKIE that said: ” your vagina does NOT ever need soap.” Thinking to myself this is insane how can I possibly smell good throughout the day if I don’t soap my box. That’s when I realized soap is a chemical (which is lye) and that’s what would throw off my PH!!! I created my blend of ingredients and mixed it up at home and I no longer had any issues with my PH and I was PHresh all day, my vagina walls started to tighten post birth (thanks to the confirmation of my boyfriend lol) and I was well moisturized and it felt so gentle and wonderful on skin. I started to give some to family and close friends who gave me wonderful feedback and encouraged me to share this with women around the world. That was how PHreshBox was born.
Has it been a smooth road?
No, it was not a smooth road. Starting a business is hard work. Plus, I am a single mom and have a full-time job and a part-time job. Time was not on my side. Also, I made so many different batches until I finally found the perfect mixture.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with PHreshBox LLC – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I specialize in making ladies most intimate areas fresh, tight and wet:-). I am known to be very straight forward, raw, not filtered and aka the #streetgynecologist lol. My brand is a reflection of that and a reflection of me, which makes me extremely proud. PHreshBox is pure natural ingredients, authentic and not filtered with anything that will dilute my products or my brand. Love, passion, and joy go into making my products, not just a mixture of things just to make a quick buck. That is what sets PHreshBox apart from others. I do not seek to be like others or give people what they THINK they need (such as soapy or foamy products to feel like they have clean their selves properly) but instead, I believe I am providing people with a product that meets a need. Showing women everywhere if you give your body what it needs naturally, it will do what it needs to do. Cut out the chemicals!
How would you describe the type of kid you were growing up?
I was brave, bold, creative and outspoken. Never afraid to try new things or make my own path, once I put my mind to something I go after it. Very ambitious.
