When we last had Black Girl Sunscreen Founder & CEO Shontay Lundy on the podcast in 2020 (EP 29), she had her 1 product in 250 Target stores and a staff of 6. Fast-forward 2 years and she and her staff of 16 have 4 products in over 10,000 Target, Ulta, CVS and Walgreens stores. Needless to say, a lot has happened and we had a lot of catching up to do.
In this episode Shontay talks about the growing pains of rapid expansion, marketing strategies used, lessons learned and investment moves. So many great takeaways in this one.
The host, Gayneté Jones chatted briefly about her Black owned menstrual care brand Best, Periodt. as well. You can find them on Instagram @best.periodt
