Polished Puckers by Devani is a kid friendly lip care line in Detroit, specializing in all-natural lip balm, lip gloss and lip scrubs. Co-owner, Christen Devani Elliot, is the youngest featured move maker on our Motivational Entrepreneur List. During Detroit winters, Christen would suffer from severe chapped lips. Her mother wasted both time and money on lip balm and lip gloss that just would not work, so she began using all-natural products around the house for Christen. One night, God spoke to Christen’s mother telling her to start up a business for her. Christen and her mother agreed on a name and researched ingredients that was good for the skin. At the age of 8, Christen launched Polished Puckers by Devani on October 2nd of 2016. The all-natural lip balm, lip gloss, and lip scrubs are kid friendly, made right from the comfort of Christens kitchen. It was important for Christen and her mother to come up with an all-natural lip balm and lip gloss line, not only to help Christen heal from dry lips, but to help others who may suffer from similar issues in the Detroit winters.
Christen is the face of Polished Puckers by Devani. Their motto is “we sell the problem we solve while our product sells itself!” Devani is motivated by her supporters, which she has a lot of.
