Kalabash Changing the general dependence on plastics for cosmetic packaging.

Cover image of Kalabash, Drugs and cosmetics venture on VC4A



Over the past years, demand for plastic has substantially increased in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This is further exacerbated by high rates of waste mismanagement. Our solution to this problem is Kalabash. A cosmetic powder brand that utilizes the calabash plant for its product packaging. The product is made up of a reusable cosmetic powder case made out of the calabash materials. we also provide refils in paper packaging. Our target population is the 50% Sub-saharan population who are females and are the primary users of beauty products or cosmetics. we run a direct sales B2C business model and charge $20 for our reusable cosmetic powder case and $8 for refills. We have currently developed a prototype product and a CAD model with mockups. Given a grant of $5000 we can improve our prototype and branding, register our business and begin our market research. with your help and our product i am certain we can eliminate the general dependence on plastics as packaging solutions.
