Who are Younique and what are they about?

Younique are a family. It’s not just about selling a product it’s about empowering women to be whoever they want to be..

Younique was started by Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft, a brother-and-sister team, in September 2012 with a mission to uplift, empower, and validate women across the globe. Derek and Melanie firmly believe that all women should feel valued, smart, and empowered through opportunities for personal growth and financial reward!

Younique founded Younique Foundation in 2014, to help bring healing to victims of childhood sexual abuse and raises awareness to prevent sexual abuse. Did you know that 1 in 4 women will be sexually abused before age 18. 60% of these women will never talk about it. 90% of these women know their abusers.

The Younique foundation owns the Haven Retreat where women survivors of childhood sexual abuse can go for FREE (you just have to pay for your travel)  and where they learn about:

Education – Understanding trauma and the impact of abuse provides a necessary foundation to apply healing tools and strategies.

Acceptance – That all women are worthy of living their best lives and all survivors deserve to be free from the pain of sexual abuse.

Community –  No one understands the healing journey as well as another survivor. The Haven is in a beautiful mountain environment where you can disconnect from day-to-day life and build a support community of other survivors.

Younique Foundation

The Younique foundation builds on survivors of sexual abuse reclaiming hope.

When you buy from me, you’re not only getting an amazing product, but you’re helping women survivors of childhood sexual abuse and as a survivor I thank you from the bottom of my heart x

Mental health stigma 

1 in 4 of us will suffer from Mental Health problems! That means in a family of 4, 1 of them will have symptoms of Mental Health at some point in their lives! Sadly because we don’t see mental health as the same as physical health, the way in which we support people in their recovery is completely different… If someone has a physical health problem then flowers and cards are bought, telephone calls  supportive messages and visits are made, yet when someone suffers from Mental Health problems, they are ignored like they have the plague! 

Did you know that within mental health  their recovery is helped by just a kind word, a supportive ear and sometimes even a cup of tea! 

Let’s start today by reducing the stigma of mental health! If you know someone suffering with a mental health problem, send them a supportive message. You never know, you may just have saved their life!
