31 incredible treehouse hotels for summer

When Jamyla Bennu decided to cut chemicals and other harsh ingredients out of her beauty regimen in the early 1990s, it meant scrounging through a limited number of alternatives at natural food stores or going into the kitchen to experiment with her own blends of coconut oil, honey, shea butter, jojoba oil, and aloe vera gel. She chose the latter, and in 2001, Oyin Handmade was conceived. Bennu moved slowly and carefully--first selling her natural line of hair and body products at craft fairs. And then in 2003, she set up a website and began racking up online sales. Six years later, she was invited to present her line to Target executives, who (like a number of other retailers and big-name beauty brands) were beginning to notice that a largely ignored section of the hair-care market had gone untapped. People, many of them black women who had chosen to stop chemically straightening their hair, wanted products with ingredients they could pronounce. She decided to decline the invitation, believing at the time that Oyin was too small to produce at the scale needed for a big-box retailer. But Bennu methodically built up her production facilities, output, and staff. Eventually, she was able to give Target what it needed, and in the spring of 2014, Oyin will become Target's newest natural beauty line. Here's how she did it: http://f-st.co/e3NRH8i
