In 1987, Majda Ficko's Hair Do Zoo was the only children's hair salon in Canada. Child-sized furniture, fun décor and animal chairs all keep kids happy so they'll stay calm while getting a great haircut from specialized stylists who only work on kids.
To complement the hair salon, Majda started Olen Cosmetics to formulate and manufacture all-natural products for babies and children. Her most notable product is Baby Butz diaper cream, developed to care for her severely disabled child. It's now licensed by Health Canada, and has been included in gifting suites at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
