Where have I been? I’ve been making lots of GREAT scrubs and soaps and I’ve been getting the new web store (Yesssss, new web store) up and running. SO we can have a SUPER SCRUB sale (coming soon)! My fingers are crossed that I have everything the way it should be.

 

Oh and guess what????? 

I’m SUPER DUPER excited about our new product this:

Activated Charcoal – Clay facial mask

Packed with Coconut Activated Charcoal and 2 kinds of natural clay that make your face do the, *happy dance* I swear your face will really be doing the, *happy dance* (LOL)!

  This facial mask glides onto skin like silk. Leave it there for 5 – 10 minutes and when you rinse it off your skin **POOF**  your pores will instantly look smaller and your face will look brighter!

I’m super excited about the results! 

Can you tell?

I (P.S. I Love Soap Co.) made the NEWS!

11 Jun

The beginning of the Farmers Market has begun. It’s a brand new year and this year we’re decided to do two markets. The Boonton Farmers Market – every Sat between 8:30 & 2 and the Pequannock Farmers Market – every Thursday between 2 & 7. It’s already been a lot of fun. I Love when customers come right up to the table look around and say ” okay, what’s new?” It just makes my day……

But, not only have the Farmers Markets opened but The Daily Record (local newspaper) did an awesome article about my journey  and my soaps! If you want to know why and how my business happened,   You can see the article here.

I’ve been incredibly busy and inspired this year in a great way! What inspires you?

Huh, What is Kokum Butter?

17 May

hahaha, Glad you asked. I love use using Kokum Butter (pronounced Coke-um) in everything to soaps to lip balms. But what is it? Well, It comes from the Garcinia Indica tree (that’s the botanical name) and it’s from the St. John’s Wort family. But, I like to just call it the Kokum Butter Tree. LoL

kokum14

It’s  a tree that grows in the Western Ghats region of India.   The tree grows with dense glossy green leaves and produces fruits that look like small plums that are a brownish color.  Under the brownish skin is juicy white fruit with approximately  6 to 8 seeds. Supposedly, the fruit tastes yummy however I’ve never tried it so I have no clue how it tastes.

The Kokum Butter is made from the seeds of the fruit. The butter consists of up to 80% of triglycerides. Which is said to help prevent drying skin. And from what I’ve seen it certainly does. It’s one of my favorite “ALL Time” butters to use.

Soon you’ll be able to check  out our soaps with Kokum Butter here!

SUGAR = Healing?

30 Apr

I love when I find out why customers are using the products they do. I have one customer we’ll call her Blair (since I don’t want to reveal her real name.) Blair has been buying my Sweet LOVE scrub forever. She’s always bragging about it…

Saying,

“Pam, you don’t understand how good it is. There is something about your scrub”

Who knew…? So one day I asked Blair why the Sugar Scrub and not the Dead Sea Salt Scrub….And she came back with Sugar is healing…

and I said “Really?”

She said “YES, and there was a study done using sugar to heal wounds”

See now that intrigued me. So I started Looking online and sure enough there have been studies saying that sugar indeed helped to heal wounds.

Basically, the gist of every article I’ve read is if you pack a wound with Sugar. The sugar will draw liquid from a wound. Bacteria need water to survive. So, no water no bacteria. Simple huh?

 Here are some links to check out… New York Times article here.  & Daily Mail UK article here.

All I can say is I think that’s amazing!

Thank God!

But just to let you know as I’m typing this it’s snow flurrying.  ICK! I’m not sure about you but I’m in NEED of some warmth and sunshine. I think they call it SPRING! Yes, that’s what they call it Spring>>>>>

I can not wait to see the flowers pop and the leaves on trees and smell the fresh clean air. AHHHH….. it’s what I long for. In the meantime I make soaps that brighten my day. Hope they brighten yours too!
