Wax melts January 30, 2019 15:56
It's funny how, when you decide to remove an item from your inventory, you hear from customers... asking about what you've got in stock. Asking about when you're going to bring out the spring scents. Meanwhile, the little voice in the back of your head is going "Um...I just....wait a minute...let me rethink..."
SO. Because you have asked, I will answer. Spring/summer scents will come. BUT... I am making a decision that reflects my desire to keep my ingredient list - and overhead - to a minimum. From this season, all wax melts will free of colorants. The clamshells are clearly labeled, so I'm not worried about confusion in that regard.
What kinds of scents are you looking for for Spring/Summer? What should I stock ALL the time?

Y'all...I'm restocking as fast as I can. But, I'm telling you, there are SO many good spring/summer scents out there.
I'm trying to figure out what I'm adding. And it's hard. Do I go fruity? Do I go beachy? Do I go all coconut and get the whole tropics vibe going? What about floral? What about, what about?
And then there's the new products...do I add body care for next fall, and spend the spring perfecting formulations? What about Shampoo Soap? I've got a formulation that works great for my hair...but it's such a texture-driven product...I'm thinking I just don't do that?
What do you think? Leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts for spring/summer scents or for new products!
Shaving Soap January 18, 2019 17:26
I've been asked, recently, if I make shaving soap for men.
Right now, that answer is no.
Did you see the right now? I'm looking into this as a small addition to my lines. It seems to me that if environmental impact is one of my biggest concerns, then it's a no-brainer. However, every type of soap requires different materials, different base oils, and different molds -- and that requires research.
I know, right? You'd think that soap is soap. But it's not. Because the different parts of our bodies - while covered by the same organ - are exposed to different environmental and circumstantial factors. Think about how sun and wind hit your face in ways they don't other parts of your body. Think about how getting rid of stubble requires .. dare I say it...a sharp blade to scrape the epidermis.
So, my friends, the answer is "not now". Because when I launch a product, I want it to be the highest quality at the most affordable price.
