Defeating negative habits is now easier than ever with Füm, a natural flavored air device used to be an alternative to smoking and vaping. Füm uses the aspects of flavor, fidget, and fixation to help users create good habits and replace their bad ones. The brand utilizes the natural diffusion process with an easy to use device created from stainless steel and wood. The products they sell are e-commerce and consist of the device called Füm and Cores, inserts that are infused with plant extracts to retain a pleasant and natural flavor. Based in Canada and founded by Braeden and Josiah Pauls, as well as Jaron and Janai Whelan, Füm seeks to replace the negative habits that are inevitable with the practice of smoking and vaping. The brand creates products that don't use smoke or electronics but are designed to approach the often overlooked three main aspects of habit formation. The flavor that Füm possesses is all natural and non-addicting but still appealing to the habit forming senses of the body. The Füm device is created to be an alternative for hand to mouth fixation of negative habits and the body’s natural responses to fidgeting, such as stress relief and focus are all results that the device itself is designed to generate. The brand believes that they can empower everyone to reach their full potential by giving them the ability to sever bad habits. Füm differentiates themselves from their competitors by focusing on the aesthetic value of their products, making them something you'd want to use in front of your friends. The brand has been organically mentioned by Joe Rogan in his podcast and is on a trajectory to becoming the next hottest product in the habit-breaking industry. Füm is at the forefront of creating a world where smoking and vaping are bad habits that characterize the past.
Honestly Essential offers natural, artisanal products that are designed to enhance the body's healing abilities. The brand strives to source the best homeopathic products that are available to an array of individual needs. Founder Cecilia Salvesen had struggled with her own personal health journey after coming close to death twice over 30 years ago. She decided to give her specialist back her chemical medication and take the natural route after feeling no better. With skepticism from her doctors, she went on to jog, scuba dive, do karate and partake in several other activities she thought she would never be able to do ever again. Cecilia graduated as a Practitioner of Complementary Medicine and decided to make therapeutic aromatherapy products for her daughter's fundraiser. Not only did she sell out, she had orders pouring in due to the product’s efficiency and thus started her Honestly Essential Journey. The brand believes in the importance of matching what you put ON your body to what you would put IN it. For this reason, Honestly Essential differentiates itself from competition by keeping its ingredients organic, vegan, kosher, cold pressed, extra virgin, and as clean as possible. Cecilia is as open and honest as her products reflect and the results they are proven to give are no stranger to this notion. Their products are made with oils that are analgesic (reduce pain), anti-inflammatory, cell regenerating and rejuvenating, balancing, uplifting and so much more. Apart from essential oils the brand also provides synergistic blends that are formulated to be relievers of stress and anxiety, immune aids and more. Honestly Essential is bringing to attention the qualities of the natural world that heal us better than no other entity. The brand is a stellar reflection of what honesty and purity can do to the human race.

Radical is a fashion tech startup revolutionizing the bra industry with perfect-fitting custom bras, right from your phone—all done in under two minutes. Shoppers take a body scan using Radical’s virtual fitting room app, which uses artificial intelligence to get people’s body measurements automatically.

CEO and Founder Ashley Wen began Radical in 2021 out of San Francisco because of her ongoing struggles with self-image.

From there, she decided to make it easy for everyone to get the bra they deserve, not the one they've been settling for. Radical staunchly believes that everyone deserves to feel radically good in their own bodies. And they’ve spent the past two years creating a bra-fitting and shopping process they hope will make people feel comfortable and empowered in what’s traditionally seen as a daunting and vulnerable experience. The brand is set to open for pre-launch in the spring of 2023. Radical is creating what the future of inclusivity looks like: self-love that you can feel and wear, accessible and easy for all.
