Fraport USA is bringing Baltimore-based Fran’s Handmade Organic Bodycare to Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) to provide travelers with natural skin care and other products, including moisturizers, toothpaste, deodorant, soaps and body scrubs.
Fran’s Organic Bodycare is the seventh local business to open under Fraport Maryland’s LaunchPad program, which provides retail opportunities at the airport for area entrepreneurs. LaunchPad operators receive a kiosk along with training, sales and marketing support.
Fran’s Organic Bodycare founder Fran Ngong created the line of all-natural products to help with a skin condition that robbed her of hydrated skin. Last year, she was awarded the Burt’s Bees Natural LaunchPad Grant for her FreeMe Natural Deodorant.
