On her journey to the Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsberg became known among some of her male colleagues as “Bitch.” When she found out, she responded: “Better a bitch than a mouse.”
Our line of cruelty-free lip and body balms are backed by a mission: To awaken people to their self-worth, and to encourage them to live boldly and courageously. We do this in two ways:
- By putting “BITCH” in the name of a product that soothes and restores. We’re appropriating a word that has historically been used to inflict shame, and attaching it to an agent of restoration.
- By putting our money where our mouth is. BITCHSTIX donates to retailer-nominated nonprofit organizations that support survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
BITCHSTIX is more than just a balm. It’s a call to action to transform a “bad” word into a force for good. It’s a one-of-a-kind product that seeks to inspire, empower, and change lives for the better.
BITCHSTIX is a self-care brand that cares about people, communities, and the world.
People are at the heart of our mission.
BITCHSTIX exists to inspire people to overcome oppressive circumstances, declare their independence, and pursue their dreams. To that end, your BITCHSTIX purchase helps support survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
Communities are where we do our work.
BITCHSTIX retailers know their communities better than anyone else. So we rely on them to identify the domestic abuse and sexual assault prevention programs in their cities that are most in need of financial support.
Our goal is to build a better world.
From our support of assault and abuse survivors to our commitment to using safe, eco-friendly ingredients that do no harm to our environment, BITCHSTIX is committed to making a net-positive impact on the world.
