Butter by Q Attends Atlanta Ultimate Women's Expo

On November 12 & 13 of 2022, the local Henry County business, Butter by Q, was featured at the 2022 Ultimate Women's Expo (UWE) at Cobb Galleria Centre. Hailed as the nation's largest women's expo, the Atlanta Ultimate Women's Expo combines the best in makeovers, shopping, speakers, and rejuvenation. 

For more than 30 years and across 590 different events, the Ultimate Women's Expo has become the premier networking event for women-owned businesses and female entrepreneurs. 

Butter by Q owner, Quiana Curry explains, "We couldn't be more excited to be selected as an exhibitor. While we originally went solely to put our product in the hands of new customers, we did that and left with our hands and hearts full of blessings.”

UWE Atlanta Hosted Over 400 Vendors

2022 ATL Ultimate Women's Exp

Butter by Q joined more than 400 vendors across all industries, ranging from hair products, financial services, clothing, cosmetics, and more. While several vendors offered whipped shea butter products, eczema balms, and similar solutions, Butter by Q’s 100% natural, plant-based products were a hit with attendees and other exhibitors alike. 

Many customers expressed gratitude that Butter by Q’s products were devoid of dyes, perfumes, non-descript fragrances, and chemicals. These popular and common additives can spell trouble for people with eczema, sensitive skin, or those who want to live a cleaner lifestyle. Instead, all of Butter by Q’s natural, plant-based cosmetics and products are gently scented with botanical extracts that also offer definitive benefits for the skin.

Husband and co-owner Elliott Curry explains, “We only use the best ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Does it sound cliche? Yep, but it’s real. If you look at the label of any shea product, you will see shea butter and oils. Although we only use premium, raw, unrefined shea butter as our base, it's our exclusive oils that help us stand out.”

Quiana continues, “Most manufacturers choose to go with oils like coconut oil, olive oil, vegetable oil (yes…cooking oil), and even castor oil. The benefits offered by these types of oils pale in comparison to our ingredients — especially rosehip and jojoba oil. Both of these premium oils are considered the gold standard in hair care and skin care. These jojoba and rosehip oils are tested and scientifically proven to deliver an unrivaled, best-in-class suite of benefits.”

However, Elliott and Quiana were especially excited because they received a special visit from one of their favorites. “I was completely shocked when I saw Molly Hopkins of 90 Day Fiance come walking toward our shop. It was an honor. She was so encouraging and inspirational,” says Quiana. 

“She heard about us and came to see Butter by Q in person! She left with several products for herself, her daughter, and her significant other, Kelly. Molly’s support was very representative of the environment at the UWE. It’s all about networking, empowering other women entrepreneurs, and…

Elliott interjects, “Selling a bunch of our products! Way to bury the lead! All jokes aside, one of the best parts about meeting Molly was that we connected and…well, we’re just excited about the things to come.”
