Christina Fontenesi & Julie D’Angelo

Congratulations to Christina Fontenesi and Julie D’Angelo, co-founders of Detox Babe, and winners of WomenNet’s November $10,000 Business Specific Grant (skin care/wellness).

The two women created their soaking products to deal with their own physical and emotional health challenges. “Once we replaced our painkillers and anti-anxiety medicine with natural bath remedies, we wanted to share our soaks and stories to help heal and inspire others,” they said.
