This Week’s Small Business Spotlight 

T&T Naturals

Location: Wilmington, Delaware

The Brand Story

Lavonda Hudson always had a passion for health, beauty, and science with a respect for how to you treat and take care of yourself holistically.

Hudson’s journey into the wellness space started in 2019 when someone asked if she could make a body scrub (Brown Sugar & Vanilla) for a raffle. A few months later, she received yet another request to create the same product for a baby shower. 

It wasn’t until January 2020 that the all-natural skin care and aromatherapy brand took shape into the business it is today. According to Hudson, she was inspired to create a shea butter concoction after taking a shower and noticing her skin was incredibly dry and lacking in elasticity after using her previous go-to lotion. Since then, T&T Naturals (named after her children Tyler and Tristian) has launched several natural products focusing on skin nourishment, healing, and moisturization.

What Makes T&T Naturals A Small Business To Shop

T&T Naturals was created to nourish, soothe, and heal. Each product is created with the “upmost love and care” to treat the body’s largest organ: your skin.

Designed with all skin types in mind, T&T Naturals is most known for its whipped body butter, which hydrates and aids in alleviating skin irritation due to conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Their products also promote elasticity, soften, and help to increase the skin’s protective barrier. 

The brand also includes an aromatherapy line that uses essential oils to target the central nervous system and help customers combat stress, headaches, anxiety, and insomnia. To further lean into the self-care market, the brand also sells select items like pillow mists, shower steamers, and headache rollers.

For 2024, Hudson is eagerly looking to expand on her “For the Gentleman” Collection, which currently holds Beard Oil with T&T fan favorites called, “So Goodt!” and “Good Morning.”
