( ENSPIRE She Did That ) Single Mother, Danika Berry, Created Glam Body, LLC to Help Women Deal with Self-esteem Issues and Depression
ENSPIRE Contributor: Elizabeth Casillas
Former product manager and publicist for Destiny’s Child, Danika Berry, dedicated her life to helping women inside and out. As a divorcee and single mother of three children, Berry has plenty of experience with turning trauma into something positive. With the stress and anxiety surrounding a divorce, Berry became depressed, and this caused acne, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. Seeing the difference in her body, she began to search for skin products that would alleviate the symptoms and renew her skin. After having no luck with products on the market, Berry created Glam Body, LLC.
After eight months of constantly experimenting with new ingredients and trying out different combinations, Berry came up with a small collection to share with women like her in 2018. This collection targeted acne, skin pores, blackheads, hyperpigmentation as well as cellulite and stretch marks. The secret ingredient was coffee. Coffee has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that make it an asset when it comes to skincare.
Glam Body, LLC started with 4 coffee scrubs which included classics such as Skin Brightening Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub, Dry Skin Buster Coconut Coffee Scrub, Muscle Relaxing Peppermint Body Scrub, Cellulite Busting Mandarin Love Scrub. As of 2020, Glam Body, LLC has become a well-known name in the skincare industry. With 20 years of entrepreneurial experience and a background in creating and selling shows for OWN TV and USA Network, she used all these skills to market and give a name to her company.
Not only did Barry create the company to help the physical appearance of women, but she also created her company to help women on the inside too. As a divorced woman of color, Barry knew how hard daily life could be and how difficult issues such as self-esteem and depression could be. Glam Body, LLC creates a community of like-minded women to open up and discuss their experiences and obstacles.
“I want them to know that life is not over. No matter what you go through, there is a light at the end of the tunnel,” Barry said. To view Glam Body, LLC’s skincare catalog visit their website.
