Our woman-owned company develops spa products for multicultural skin that address a variety of skin issues including oily skin, dry skin, acne, and in-grown facial hair (for men).
Black Mermaid’s SPA offers plant-based, clean beauty products formulated for advanced, personalized skincare. Our company provides an alternative solution in clean, natural products for women & men with diverse skin types.
Our Poseidon Men’s Collection is comprised of all natural, plant-based grooming products formulated for men of color. The beard products are designed to help men keep their beards soft and moisturized while our shaving soap relieves the irritation from razor bumps and ingrown hairs while providing a smooth, close shave.
Our products are available to the spa and retail markets where we offer both wholesale and private label.
Denise Zannu started as a school scientist creating products for friends and family. In doing so, she developed scientifically formulated, naturally-derived creations that were both effective and healthy for all skin types.
Zannu has focused her expertise and drive to build a B2B micro-manufacturing company that hosts retail, professional spa, and men’s grooming lines. Black Mermaid's sales channels include the retail and spa industries with a plan to export into Canada, Central America and the Caribbean by the end of 2022.
Black Mermaid’s SPA participates in national and international industry trade shows for wholesale, private label and international buyers and has performed lectures and seminars on product development and entrepreneurship throughout the industry.
With over 25 years of experience in education, business, and entrepreneurship, Zannu credits the company’s continued growth and success to her willingness to be open to opportunities and her commitment to quality, clean beauty without compromise.
