We here at Weosh “WEE-osh”, are pioneers and trailblazers in developing, Woman C.E.Os, whom we call W.E.Os (Women Executive Officers). We are the ultimate shopping destination for curated and socially-conscious lifestyle products made by women. Our goal is to promote WEOs by providing a platform for their products to other women, creating a dual-empowerment effect: WEOs grow their companies and markets, and the customers practice their buying power consciously by shopping!
Meet The WEOs behind

Monique Hayes founded Semdora, a pre-waxing oil that numbs the skin before waxing and prevents ingrown hairs. As a licensed aesthetician specializing in waxing, "the main concern that I hear from clients (especially the first-timers) is the amount of discomfort and pain they experience during the process." So she took matters into her own hands and developed an anesthetic product fueled by natural plant extracts, not harsh chemicals. You, too, can take matters into your own hands - Semdora Prep Oil is available now for a pain-less waxing experience.
Krista's mission is to create an intimate channel through lingerie, to harness the healing power of gemstones that could benefit the wearer all day long. "It thrilled me to finally explore and connect my background in fashion with this unique spiritual edge."
Mimi Kim is the #weo behind Biodara, which is rooted in her experience with autoimmune disease. She developed her skincare products with the same therapeutic, organic oils and botanicals that transformed her health. She found change and relief through her products, and they can transform your skin’s health, too.

We believe that all products should be pure, simple and effective - without a drop of synthetic chemicals. When you feel good, you look good.
Nicole is an esthetician, acne specialist and mom, Often asked for recommendations on kid and teen-friendly skin care products. She never had a good answer, until now. For delicate, sensitive and acne-prone skin pore-clogging ingredients are a no-no. That is why she developed products that are gentle, healing and truly organic, unlike most brands claiming to be organic that only include one or two organic ingredients!
LEYOS was inspired by a personal commitment to health and wellness coupled with European healing approaches and family’s background in medicine. My vision was to develop a next level botanical skincare line that is clean, effective and safe without compromise. LEYOS represents the values of empowering the self, others and the planet with conscious and pure ingredients, products developed with care and intelligence, and sustainable packaging.
CJ Zhan-Shahani founded her brand after her pregnancy, enduring bouts of hormonal cystic acne, and failing to find a solution that didn't aggravate her skin condition. Turning to nature for inspiration – using plant-based bioactive's was without doubt, the optimal solution. In formulating this collection, the guiding principle is not about how many actives can cram into a formula, or how high a percentage the formulas can reach. This capsule collection focuses on using key plant-based actives, optimizing their performance with other proven ingredients, and allowing these key actives to take centre stage in a formula.
