Hidden Gems: Meet DeAngela Gill of DeeDee’s Butter Bar

Today we’d like to introduce you to DeAngela Gill.  

Hi DeAngela, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
DeeDee’s Butter Bar was created in 2015, the mist of my journey to become a more health-conscious woman. While searching for healthier alternatives, I learned that many of the most common ingredients weren’t safe to use and that they could lead to health issues, both internally and externally. I researched the best natural ingredients, their benefits, and how I could implement them into my daily routine. I removed harmful and unbeneficial ingredients from my daily skincare routine as well as diet. From my kitchen, I created formulations for a few products, that later grew into the Signature Collection of my business. I found that when I started to live a holistic lifestyle, my skin began to flourish and looked more vibrant than ever. I felt a sense of urgency to share my knowledge and newly developed products with others. Thus, DeeDee’s Butter Bar was born. From family and friends being supportive and ordering products to obtaining an Esty shop and attending local vendor markets, my business began to grow. As of today, DeeDee’s Business Bar now resides in College Hill, OH. We offer natural handcrafted skincare that can be customized to each individual’s unique needs and preferences. Consumers will have a one-of-a-kind experience with our Self-Service Bar, which was created for those with specific wants or needs. Also, we offer other items, such as skincare tools and sage, to promote optimal results and tranquility. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
There has been a couple of minor bumps in the road, however, with experience and time, I persevered. As a small business owner, I view every issue as an opportunity for me to learn and grow. 

As you know, we’re big fans of DeeDee’s Butter Bar. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
I create natural and handcrafted skincare products. A #ButterdBae favorite would be my Whipped Body Butters. It is fluffy, creamy, nutrient-rich goodness in a jar. My customers love that they can be in control of their skincare and feel like they’re wants and needs are being heard with me. Along with my products, I have established a platform to spread awareness and to promote holistic skin health and wellness. Creating customizable products for each unique individual, from our butter to oils, sets me apart from others. 

What do you think about happiness?
Family. Being able to provide for my family and create generational wealth means everything to me. Growing up, my mom worked really hard to take care of her four children and evolve as a person, so that she could provide a life for us that she never had. I always keep a mental note of her strength, love, and determination, when I make decisions for my life because I know that it will be a reflection of my own family.
