On Sunday we reported that the popular feminine product brand ‘Honey Pot’ is trending because consumers noticed the company, known for its plant-based feminine hygiene products, has altered its formula.
They are black-owned and co-founded by Beatrice Dixon, who started The Honey Pot Company in 2012.
CEO and co-founder Bea Dixon addressed all of the backlash she has personally received and the brand has received over the weekend.
She put up a note on Instagram asking people to refrain from personally attacking her and the brand.
She read a letter addressing things: The Honey Pot remaining black owned by her family, formula changes and admitting they needed to communicate earlier.
On Instagram Bea wrote:
I am a CEO, a Chief Innovation Officer and founder. But I’m also human. My team and I hear you and it’s our priority to show up and create a space of trust and transparency. Let me set some things straight.
1. We have not sold.
2. The wash formulation has evolved for good reason.
3. We have and always will serve humans with vaginas best. Full stop.
Thank you for your grace and patience as I address this matter.
Please email me directly at email@example.com. I’m here for any questions, concerns and to provide any additional information.
Then she shared this video, tearfully apologizing towards the end for lack of communication:
