Lara Henderson, from Papamoa, New Zealand, (pictured with her partner Richard and son Levi) launched Pure Mama in 2021.

A mother of two and small business owner made $100,000 in one week when reality star Kourtney Kardashian recommended her pregnancy products on Instagram.

Lara Henderson, 35, from Papamoa, New Zealand, was cleaning the kitchen one morning after breakfast when she received an urgent message from her sister.

The message read: ‘Shit, we made it to Kourt’s hospital bag. She used it and recommends us!’ The mega star shared it first on his Poosh page and then on her personal account.

Feeling “overwhelmed” at first, Lara noticed a massive increase in sales and could “barely keep up” with demand.

“We had to start our next production quickly to ensure we had enough stock,” he told FEMAIL.

Sales in the US also increased by a staggering 400 percent and a bottle of the brand’s best-selling Belly Oil was sold every five minutes.

Your skin was “pushed to the limit” and you should not find the right product to meet your needs.

“Not only was I overwhelmed by the conflicting information about ingredient safety, but I was also surprised by the number of synthetic ingredients and fragrances that were used,” she said.

“This, coupled with an outdated market landscape that did not recognize the complexity of motherhood, especially around the physical, psychological and emotional changes women go through, led me to lead the charge.”

Three years later, in May 2021, he launched pure mom Offering a range of pregnancy and postpartum skin care products.

The decision required $65,000 of his own savings, but it was worth it as he now considers Kourtney Kardashian a fan.

“We’re not entirely sure if he received all three or not, or which one had the biggest impact, but at some point in all of that he opened it up and started using it on his journey,” Lara added.
