HOW STRIP IT STARTED
About Us

– The general manager and owner of Strip It!

Arlette Alvarado, Owner of Strip It!

She has always been an entrepreneur at heart. From elementary through college, she had sold a myriad of products – from stationeries, ukayukay clothes to Divisoria finds. This entrepreneurial spirit is so strong that, in college, she took up B.S. Entrepreneurship to hone this innate gift. One may wonder, though, why she went into this line of business, in particular. Like many other products and services that have attained certain longevity, she developed her products out of a personal need. Growing up, she had struggled with unwanted hair and skin asthma. Finding an affordable all-natural easy-to-use, but efficacious, hair removal wax was next to impossible; more so, gentle enough for use by people like her with skin asthma. These needs, along with the entrepreneur in her, inspired and motivated her to have her own business. She is a creative person. She loves the creative process involved in product development – from conceptualization to actualization. She proudly says that her products are an expression of her creativity. She derives immense satisfaction from the validation of her creative vision and output by her clients’ continued patronage. Having and running a business of her own is not a job; but, an avenue to connect and to create. She also loves meeting people from all walks of life and sharing ideas, dreams & life stories with them. She is an advocate of artisanal products; It has been a passion that she has shared with many.

Where “Strip It” got its name?

Strip It! got its brand name from a simple message that every woman wanted to achieve and that is to help them remove unwanted hair in the easiest, most beneficial & fun way you can – “If there’s a hair you don’t want it, then Strip It!”

THE STRIP IT - ENTERPRISE PLANNING PROJECT

“The first time we tested our (prototype) product; my classmates gave a lot of feedback. Some found the consistency too hard and too sticky. And so I decided to make our sugaring, a type of sugar wax, that can be applied easily on the skin. Now, you will notice that Strip It glides smoothly on the skin.

We also specialized on the products’ unique features like “all natural’ and “no need to heat.” It is what women wanted and needed. Together with my group mates, we launched Strip It! in our school exhibit back in the year 2006 which was the first DO-IT-YOURSELF SUGARING WAX KIT in the market. It is the first waxing kit that is all natural, smooth, and easy to use.
Back in the days, every girl was afraid to wax but I taught my schoolmates how to use it and told them about its benefits on our skin and eventually, they loved it! From then on, my group mates and I started selling the wax personally in bazaars. We even exhibited the product at the ENTREP CORNER (a program of Miriam College & Robinson’s Galleria) in March 2007, where Strip It! was formally launched.

Because of our hard work as aspiring businesswomen, we got featured on T.V. and newspapers as YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS!
In the year 2009, we were able to take control the quality of our product and our business grew even better. Now, our goal is to continue improving our products and create new ones for our beloved customers.”
