Founder, CEO & Chief Innovation Officer
The Honey Pot
When she was younger, Beatrice Dixon suffered with bacterial vaginosis for eight months. One night, an ancestor gave her the ingredients to heal herself in a dream. From that insightful dream, she created the formula for a healthy, clean feminine wash. In 2014, Dixon launched The Honey Pot Company, a plant-derived vaginal wellness line created with a goal to provide humans with a healthy alternative to vaginal care that is kind and safe for skin. The rest is history.
With experience in pharmaceuticals, retail and natural foods, Dixon has the insight and expertise to bring the innovative concept of a plant-derived vaginal care system to the marketplace. Unlike mass market and conventional feminine care brands, consumers are able to get all of their vaginal care needs met under one brand as The Honey Pot Company currently offers feminine washes, wipes, tampons, pads, sexual wellness and soon-to-be additional offerings in both the vaginal wellness and vaginal care segments.
Today, The Honey Pot Company’s products can be found online and in stores nationwide at Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Bed Bath and Beyond, Wegmans and other retailers.
An empowering African American female entrepreneur, Dixon has been a recipient of the Sundial and Unilever’s multimillion-dollar New Voices fund; was 1 of the first 40 women of color to raise over one million in venture capital; and has been featured in T -Pain's School of Business, BuzzFeed's Ladylike series, Today Show, CNN, The New York Times, Entrepreneur, ELLE, and ESSENCE to name a few.
Most recently, Dixon was recognized by Goldman Sachs as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2021 at its Builders + Innovators Summit, Worth’s Worthy 100, Forbes Top 100 Female Founders, and one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 100 Women Entrepreneurs ; her company won a CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women’s) Beauty Creator Award in 2021, an ESSENCE Best in Black Beauty Award and a WWD Beauty Inc Wellness Award. Dixon also hosts “Your Next Move”, a Capital One Business and Inc. Magazine interview series in which she interviews other successful founders.
Through her diverse background and experience, Dixon continues to make a mark in the world of natural health and retail with a truly revolutionary approach to human health and sexual wellness.
