Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley not only have a successful reality show and happy marriages in common; but it appears the famous twin sisters have now decided to create a profitable business together too. When both aren’t focused on acting gigs, it appears the pretty sisters have been thinking up a genius business plan. And since motherhood has become a huge part of their lives recently, they decided to launch a product line. The products are geared toward pregnant women, new mothers and even babies. Here’s a snippet of the press release:
Celebrated TV stars and new moms Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley announced today the launch of their new product line, Need™ — healthy, innovative products for moms and moms-to-be. The first product in the line is MILKY!™, a 2.5 ounce, lactation-enhancing herbal tea supplement created for moms who choose to breast feed. MILKY!™ will make its debut at Destination Maternity®, Motherhood Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® stores nationwide this May.
“We are thrilled to partner with Tia and Tamera on this exciting launch and to be the exclusive retailer of Milky!”
MILKY!™ was originally featured on Style Network’s hit series “Tia & Tamera.” During the episode “Twinventors,” expectant mother Tamera became concerned that she would have difficulty producing enough breast milk for her son, a common but seldom discussed problem, which Tia also experienced. Tamera sought the advice of her maternity wellness expert, who recommended drinking fenugreek herbal tea. Neither sister liked the taste of the tea and desired a more convenient way to consume it. After much experimenting, they came up with their own great tasting recipe and set out to develop a healthy and all-natural product to assist all breastfeeding women including those coping with milk production issues. They partnered with a leading food scientist to refine their own unique formula into a quick and great tasting alternative: MILKY!™.
When speaking out on the new venture, both sisters expressed their excitement for the new product line:
“We are passionate about helping mothers who, like us, have wanted products that would make pregnancy easier and would help with our newborn babies — but what we needed wasn’t available. We set out to create a new line of products for today’s generation of modern women. Need™ provides healthy, innovative and necessity-driven solutions for new and expectant moms and their children.”
Congrats to Tia and Tamera.
