Andrea Polk has dedicated her life to finding the perfect grooming formula that exemplifies perfection in ethnic skin. While working at an industrial supply company, she began to realize she wanted more out of life. She always had a deep interest in natural health care and realized she wanted to educate people about the great benefits of using natural products. The market was already saturated in the female beauty sector, with many companies boasting about their new organic and natural product lines. However, Andrea noticed there was a lack of concern in the men’s grooming market, especially pertaining to ethnic skincare. The light bulb went off and Andrea immediately knew her true calling was to create a product line that filled this void and Solo Noir was born.
Solo Noir features 100% organic 2-in-1 grooming products that offer cutting edge skincare technologies to achieve skin perfection in men. This line has 8 uniquely formulated products to help address ingrown hairs, skin imperfections, restore skin elasticity, moisturize and protect, and promote smooth and healthy skin, while also utilizing an easy application process.
Andrea Polk holds a Master of Business Administration degree in E-Commerce & Logistics and a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Tennessee State University. Her experience in consumer sales has proven to be successful in the grooming industry as well as in her professional career. As a certified Licensed Aesthetician, she’s made it a priority to dig deep, learning the foundations of skin care and the benefits of using natural products. Her efforts have awarded success in fulfilling her life goal of providing the over-looked male with the solution to achieving skin perfection. To empower her consumers and enforce the brand slogan “Definition of a Man”, she cleverly crafted each product with descriptions that embody the best kept attributes of a man: Brave, Smooth, Sleek, Dapper, Refined. Her goal is to educate consumers on the importance of being well groomed and using natural organic products to achieve the best results without being overly complicated. The demand and response for these products were received so well, she decided to add two new products to the line, Bold and Muse, which cater to beard grooming maintenance. Her efforts of meeting the market demands as an entrepreneur has garnered much attention and landed her notable recognition as an Ariel Investment Game Changer 40 under 40 and was listed as Best Consumer Product of 2015 Chicago.
