Have you ever had a dream of a young child torn away from her mother and given away in marriage to a man old enough to be her great grandfather? Yeah, that was the kind of nightmare i woke up to at 2.00 am . Her screams echoes at every corner of my room,keeps me awake until dawn and gave me this burden in my heart to do something about it...I came up with the solution that if we could help this young child's mother to be self-reliant to be able to take care of her...even educate her, she will not end up in child marriage since her family will not need to borrow money from these Shylocks who want a pound of flesh of their offspring.Call me a dreamer...I won't stop until the nightmare is over. Wish me luck !

Entrepreneurs Talima Davis and Allison Lamb are on a mission to provide healthy, sustainable, and all natural skincare products with their new line Limegreen. Inspired by their grandmothers, they thought that the best way to serve is by making skincare products meant to be used in a variety of areas, rather than specializing on a specific area of the body. They ask, “Why do single, when you can do multi?” And the answer to that question is you shouldn’t! Each of their cleansing, moisturizing, and refreshing products can be used on your body, face, or hands without a question of its effectiveness. So whether you’re in need of some all natural, vegan soap to bust some suds or some essential oils for your hair or beard, Limegreen is the brand for you. And to top it off, these phenomenal women are being featured on Project Runway: Fashion Startup, because they’re just that lit! In the meantime, please consider showing your support with some dollars!

How did your own entrepreneurial journey start? Do you come from an entrepreneurial background?

I grew up in beautiful sunny Ghana and art was a love from an early age, even though I also harboured a dream of being a pilot. Being top of the art class almost every year was a sign to me to pursue art in some form. So I left Ghana for London to study and expand my knowledge in art and design, be around other creative individuals, and to learn and develop as much as I could.
