Anyone heard of "The Doux"?

Came across this on instagram and the branding/photos drew me in. Not interested in straightening my hair but I'm always interested when I hear about new products. Can't see any ingredients anywhere though. Anyone heard of them?

The DOUX For Smart Chicks With Real Hair
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far

    I like their webpage/marketing. Very colorful. But I won't be purchasing since I'm no longer a PJ and now precisely what works for me. Maybe someone had tried it and can give a lil feedback?
    Just a Lurker...

    Omg I am so in love with the Doux. They're in Germany. Wanna make me take a trip so she can lay my kinks and coils. Site is sold out of all her products though :(. But she does giveaways.

    Yup...i bought "bonita afro balm" from them..since they are based in germany it took about 11 days to get my order.i was attracted to the webpage and colors ("ooo, something shiny!")..lol..
    the website is very vague on product size and list of ingredients, but i believe its about 4 or 6oz of product.
    the BAB smells EXACTLY like the Dark & Lovely au natural line and has the same consistency, but is lemony yellow.the ingredients are not all that impressive (LOTS of cones!), buuuut it left my lil w&G afro uber soft & moisturized, smelling good (in my opinion) super shiny, and cute definition of texture. Not necessarily curl pattern definition, but texture definition..(i dont know how to better explain that). It offers no "hold" on my wng.
    i do feel that its it over priced considering it a chock full of cones with only a few good/natural ingredients aaaand shipping & wait time, but i am happy with the results for a wng. at first, it didnt seem to play well with CJ smoothing lotion, but when it began to dry, i was very happy with the results.
    i have not used it for a twist out or any type of "out" yet, since that is what it is "supposed" to be used for, but i do look forward to see the results.
    i would not purchase anything else from the doux, unless they have a U.S. distributor & a full ingredents so i knw what im getting for the price.
    i hope this review helps.:afro:
