The women behind the brand
know you love our products, but do you know how it all started?
GloveTm was founded by Daniele Henkel, a committed, ambitious woman
who was devoted to her company, but most of all to her family. Today her daughters Linda and Amel Mahieddine
are the managers of Daniele Henkel Enterprises inc and Renaissance GloveTm,
as passionate as their mother, they are taking over the family business and they
embark on this project that they have seen grow with them.
on the occasion of International Women's Day, we tell you our story.
did it all start?
GloveTm was born in Daniele Henkel's basement following her arrival
in Canada. After leaving everything behind in Algeria to make a better life for
her family, she realized that starting over was going to be more difficult than
she thought. After a long and exhausting day at work, she decides to take a
moment to relax and do her exfoliation ritual as she learned to do in Algeria.
This ritual is an ancestral tradition of North Africa and the Middle East, it
is not only intended to eliminate impurities from the skin, but it is also a
moment of relaxation, a body and a spiritual purification. It was during this
ritual that she had the incredible idea to launch a new project, which is the
sale of the exfoliating glove. Today the Renaissance glove is the best-selling
exfoliating glove in Canada.
did it happen?
Henkel changed her life and her family’s life by giving her heart and soul to
the sale of the scrubbing glove. With the support of her family and the
involvement of her daughters, she faced many obstacles and rejections, but
never gave up. Her daughter Linda Mahieddine, who at the age of 16 started to
help her mother in the management, resale and preparation of orders, gradually
made her place in the business and then joined the family business. Amel Mahieddine
joined the company a little later to help Linda manage the operations and
support her sister in the development of the business.
Henkel moved on to new projects, and handed over the business to her daughters
Linda and Amel Mahieddine who managed Renaissance GloveTm with the
same values as their mother. They followed in their mother's footsteps and
embarked on a new adventure to make the brand more known worldwide and to make
the exfoliating glove accessible to all. Together, they have built a team of
employees who care about the brand and share the same values.
to these inspiring women who have shaped the brand's values, Renaissance GloveTm
is committed to women, with product donations, monetary donations and
collaborations with Canadian women starting businesses. Renaissance GloveTm
is staffed primarily by women. The company is committed to their well-being by
allowing them to balance their work life with their family life.
