WHO WE ARE
The 7th Magazine SXM has been established in the beautiful island of Sint Maarten, as the Caribbean branch for The 7th Magazine LLC. The island of Sint Maarten-Saint Martin is the smallest land mass in the world to be shared by two different nations. At only 37 square miles, the island is governed by France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The pristine vibrancy of Sint Maarten’s surroundings, mixed with the friendliness of the island, added up to the perfect combination that formulated The 7th Magazine SXM. Whereas SXM stands as an abbreviation, as well as the airport code, of Sint Maarten – “The Friendly Island”.
‘Sweet SXM’ derives from Saint Martin’s national song. Historically, Father Gerard Kemps, after being appointed as priest for the Catholic Church of French St-Martin in 1954, felt compelled to compose lyrics and a melody to sing of the sweetness, the grace, and the incomparable beauty of the land that was unfolding before his eyes.
In 1958, Father Gerard Kemps created “O Sweet Saint Martin’s Land”. Because of the message the lyrics conveyed and the melody that carried the tune, it served the purpose of a national song.
The composition of the flower & the colors within ‘Sweet SXM Lips’ speak to the cultural unity of elements in a compact setting, as would best describe our Sweet Sint Maarten.
The 7th Magazine SXM vision, since being established in the Caribbean Spring of 2018, is to increase the Gross Domestic Product growth of Sint Maarten. As one of the few “Made in Sint Maarten” products, the dedication to our vision is becoming an internationally well-renowned brand within the Beauty sector.
Ever since the devastating Hurricane Irma struck Sint Maarten in September of 2017, the horrors of what was to expect was simply unexpected, on a dreadful scale at Category 5 with winds of a hundred and eighty-two miles per hour ripping the island apart piece by piece, hour by hour.
The true terror didn’t start until after the second Hurricane, as the economy of Sint Maarten is purely ran on Tourism. Thus the rebuilding of the Island, although impressively faster than the previous years, were unaided by the abrupt halt of tourism, as the airport & cruise ports had been shut down as a safety hazard.
The 7th Magazine SXM aims to create a label that will boost the economy as a product that although has been produced in Sint Maarten, is distributed throughout international markets within the beauty industry. Finally, a Sint Maarten product that won’t be negatively affected by the weather; so that when it rains, it won’t pour…
