Lisa Lindsey, Creator/Founder of Ginger Yum: As a young lady, I was raised by my grandparents within a loving and supportive community in Memphis, TN. I was taught the values of being a responsible citizen and having empathy for others. My life thus far has been a validation of the “Six Degree of Separation” concept. I firmly believe that within this circle are the perfect persons to benefit from mutual support during this journey. I am blessed and honored to have been a leader in a Fortune 100 company for over 28 years. My previous employer also emphasized being a responsible community partner and received national recognition for supporting small businesses as well as businesses owned by women of color. I’ve always had that “entrepreneurial spirit”, but I also desired to make a meaningful contribution that goes beyond money and status. Confident in my upbringing and management repertoire layered on the foundation of integrity, judgment, and customer loyalty- I listened to my heart and head and created Ginger Yum, LLC.
Ginger Yum was created to re-introduce the ginger root and all its’ healthy properties with an added personal care twist-it has the most pleasant aroma! Ginger is not only great for internal consumption, but it also has excellent benefits when used as a topical. The decision to emphasize nature’s gift of the “Ginger” root in our products is one based on our commitment to finding a healthier all-natural personal care alternative to often odorous, ineffective and preservative laden body products offered by other companies. The ginger root can be traced as far back as the fourteenth century where it was grown in India, Southern Asia, and Africa. Ginger Yum will only use products from the best both national and international sources. The pure essential oil of ginger has over 20 antioxidants that aid in the healing of burns, bruises, and scars. It is also known to help in skin toning and achy joints. The ginger root has been proven to reduce swelling, sore muscles and stimulate poor circulation. When incorporated with other quality natural products the aroma is indeed pleasurable. Many scientific studies have validated that ginger contains protein, iron, vitamin C, folic acid, and vitamin B3. Ginger stands on its own merit when using the standards of longevity, quality, and positive results. We are committed to introducing to everyone the pleasant, sweet and spicy aroma of the ginger root and its effectiveness when used as an external personal care option. Ginger Yum’s personal care products have the most pleasant aroma and are the most effective in the industry. Full Stop!
