A young pair of sisters who were born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee have already taken the world by storm with their innovative creation, which stemmed from a common passion for body care.
Madison Star (pictured right) and Mallory Iyana (pictured left) are the founders of a business and body care product line called Angels and Tomboys by Madison and Mallory. This registered trademark is the umbrella brand for a variety of fragrances, body lotions, and body sprays, which the sisters sell at their online store.
Star, 13, and Iyana, 11, are also both actively involved in performing arts. They currently live in Los Angeles, California where they are taking full advantage of the city’s access to Hollywood’s industrial underpinnings. These kidpreneur sisters are no strangers to Hollywood.
In October of 2016, the pint-sized dynamic duo starred on “Shark Tank,” ABC’s popular reality game show series. Star and Iyana were featured on the fourth episode of the show’s eighth season. In an exclusive interview with Eve Naturally, the two sisters talked about how this major television debut made them feel.
“The experience was surreal! A life changing experience that we will never forget. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to appear on the show and meet the Sharks!” Madison told Eve Naturally. “They’re great! We were just as impressed with [the Sharks] as they were with us,” Mallory added.
Star and Iyana’s mother is a woman named Viara Iyadunni. Iyadunni is the best friend of R&B singer and reality television star K. Michelle. Iyadunni and K. Michelle both grew up in the same Memphis neighborhood together. Iyadunni spoke with Eve Naturally about how Shark Tank co-stars Daymond John and Mark Cuban have helped her daughters’ brand.
“[Mark and Daymond] have offered a lot of advice to position us for growth and have introduced us to a team of people to help us move to the next phase. We make an assertive effort to always connect with our current fan base and to introduce ourselves to people that may not know about us just yet,” Iyaduni said in her exclusive interview.
The products under the Angels and Tomboys umbrella are in a league of their own. “Our paraben free, patent pending, vegan friendly formula contains several great vitamins to preserve young skin. It’s a must-have for EVERY girl and every parent can feel good about it,” reads a message written by the girls on their company website.
