Halcyon Network Frequently asked questions
Why might I want my own product line?
Product lines are very versatile, and creativity is the limit to how you can apply them.
If you're a hair salon, you may want the ability to expand into the retail market for passive income and reach, you may also want the free marketing of having your salons name in peoples homes.

This both increases the likelyhood of the individual becoming a repeat client, and means their more inclined to recommend you to their friends and family. If you're an influencer, then having a product line gives you to many advantages to list. One of the most interesting is the ability to get your branding off of peoples screens and into their life.

How does The Halcyon Network work?
In essence, we're a distributor who allows for complete customizability.
This means that we buy existing, proven product from our partnered suppliers, modify it to the clients specifications (eg. scent, texture, quality, packaging, etc...), and distribute it to the clients as their own brand. Because of this, we're able to build unique product lines while pulling on over 125 years of collective formulation experience. All of this knowledge is now at your disposal, without any of the startup costs that would be incurred by developing product from scratch.
Verdant Skincare Frequently asked questions
What makes your product so different and unique?
When we started out, we had one simple goal: To help people. Since then we've expanded our horizons by also dedicating to ethicality and sustainability.
Is it ethical for a company to hide it's ingredients behind long names? We didn't think so, so we only use natural and readable ingredients, with names you'll recognize. We're also vegan and we never test on animals.
Is it sustainable to mass produce products in a factory and send them around the world? We didn't think so, so we make small batches, and offset our carbon footprint by planting a tree for every product purchased. This makes us carbon negative, as we're taking more carbon out of the atmosphere than putting in!
How do you remain accessible to all?
As you can see by our prices, we strive to remain accessible to any and everyone that wants to join us in making the world a healthier and more sustainable place, regardless of income. This is why we've sacrificed our profit margins to keep prices low: So we can help as many people as possible, making the world of skincare more sustainable and ethical in the process.
