The entire withinUs team have been reflecting on these last few years and we are filled with gratitude.

2019 has continued to be a year of growth for withinUs and we truly appreciate each and every one of our supporters, retailers, and customers for helping us along the way.

Michelle Obama’s skin-care secret
2019 started off with an exciting article feature by Refinery29 which named ReHydrate + TruMarine™ Collagen as one of Michelle Obama’s skin-care secrets. withinUs Ambassador, Jennifer Brodeur, the founder of JB Skin Guru and Ms. Obama’s skin-care expert, has over 20 years of experience as a skin strategist, and has been sharing our products with her high-profile clients (Oprah Winfrey is also one of her clients). Jennifer specifically shared ReHydrate with Ms. Obama to help keep her hydrated while travelling and says, “the one thing I always make sure we have on hand is withinUs — it’s a collagen supplement that’s vital for flying." 1

Events and Announcements
2019 - withinUs turned 5!
In May, we celebrated our 5 year milestone by hosting our first ever pop-up event - 5 Years of GLOW. This event was a wonderful opportunity to meet our local supporters and customers and give back to our community. We partnered with Golf for Good, a local charity initiative run by our ambassador, Tracey McVicar, and donated proceeds from 5 Years of GLOW to Covenant House Vancouver. A total of $5000.00 was raised and donated to help support at risk and homeless youth in Vancouver.

As a company, we believe in giving back to our community, and this event was a great chance for us to do this. We understand that having the opportunity to give back is a privilege, and this is something we feel fortunate for every day, and do not take for granted.

withinUs’ Sponsored Student in Kenya
In April the withinUs Team attended the One Girl Can annual IWANTtoBE event. This was a fundraising event that worked to raise funds to sponsor girls education in Kenya to help break the cycle of poverty in Africa. Education in Kenya and Uganda is not free nor is it easily accessible, especially for young women. We learned that many families in these areas that do have money to send their children to school usually choose to send males to school, leaving the girls at home, without opportunity to learn and grow. We are incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to sponsor and support Gloriah through her university education. Learning about the difficulties children have accessing education in other parts of the world makes us extremely grateful for the opportunities and resources we have in North America.

One of Canada’s Top-Growing companies
withinUs is honoured to be recognized on two ‘top growing’ lists for 2019.

Reflecting on these awards, and the success we have had over the past year, we recognize how extremely fortunate we are to be able to celebrate these successes, and for the support system - retailers, customers, ambassadors, friends, and family - that have helped us reach these milestones. We are incredibly proud of the products we offer, and for our loyal, and educated customers that have helped us succeed and reach these incredible accomplishments in 2019. We cannot wait to share with all of you what the next year has to bring.
