This Black Woman Made $1M In Sales Selling Vaginal Wash For Your Yoni

"Get a bucket and a mop, for this clean-AP."

Human Interest

Social media influencer-turned-businesswoman, Starr Dawkins, knows a thing or two (or five) about feminine hygiene. She launched her brand, Sweet Cookie Wash, in 2017 as a mission to make women feel confident about their lady parts' health and let their yoni shine. And since, Sweet Cookies has taken off like a wildfire, being one of the fortunate black-owned companies to flourish during the pandemic.

But what's most impressive about Dawkins' journey, is that she started her brand with literally zero dollars to invest. And now, she pulls in well over a million dollars in sales a year. Uploading a picture to social media to officially commemorate the moment, she captioned the photo:

"Million dolla Pu$Y! We did it! I'll never forget this black Friday weekend! No initial family support, no rich bf, no loans or money! Just a pre-order, promoting, praying, & Manifesting! In 2017 I still slept on friends couches & took the bus & I decided to be grateful that at least I had legs to walk and hands to give out flyers! The power of the mind is not a joke, everyday I wake up KNOWING I'm supported & only thinking positive!"

She continued:

"Next year I hope more women profit from my brand weather it's a vending machine or opening a @sweetcookiewash V-spa franchise! I can't thank you enough from day 1 it's been LOVE from every angle. sale is still going keep shopping #cookiewashads#teamgoodcookie#priceypussyclub"

To-date, Sweet Cookie Wash's products consists of more than 30 feminine care products with eight categories such as pregnancy, after birth and pH balance. Their probiotics, slippery supplements, cookie wipes and bikini line spot remover are among the most popular items in her inventory (with much more all hilariously labeled with names such as 'Cookie Sheets', 'Clean His Rifle Wash', and more). Dawkins even walks us through the process of how to give ourselves yoni steams or vajacials, over on YouTube, a demonstration that she takes extreme pride in.

She tells Forbes:

"Most brands capitalize off women's vaginal issues and insecurities. We work to normalize the topic surrounding vaginal health."

Dawkins credits her ability to strategize as a means for her success of creating, and building, a company with no money. And her secret is simple: she used money from pre-orders to buy materials to produce and ship her products.

"[In] 2020, I've made over $100,000 each month. When I launched my Pink Friday sale and saw $100,000 in 30 minutes, it shocked me how successful my business had become."

We certainly aren't shocked, sis, black women are lit! Continue flourishing, queen!

5 Black-Owned CBD Brands To Add To Your Self-Care Routine

It comes as no surprise that the cannabis industry and the legalization of marijuana are yet another barrier that Black business owners face. A new report released by Grand View Research, Inc stated that the global legal marijuana market size is expected to reach $73.6 billion by 2027. However, many states have very specific guidelines that stand as barriers for many people of color looking to get into the cannabis business, and Black and brown people are still serving harsher sentences for the possession and distribution of drugs than their white counterparts.

I think it's fair to say that most of us long to reach that place where the money resides, especially in the present times when life is so uncertain and people are likely to lose their jobs at any given moment. On the other hand, perhaps thanks to the plethora of entrepreneurs that document their journeys on social media, there's the sense that abundant financial wealth seems more accessible now than it ever has before. With that said, despite all the step-by-step guides to becoming rich available on the market, we can still hear the same question echoing in our heads: How do I get to the bag, though?
