A Drink For Your Skin!

I wanted to offer something different so I decided to make a Pink Lemonade Body Butter.  It is made from Raw African Shea Butter as is most of our Body Whips, Body Balms, and Body Butters.  This Body Butter is so fresh smelling, not that child like sweetness that you get with most fruit and citrus scented products.  It goes on nice and smooth, quickly melting into your skin to give it that much needed drink of moisture, especially as the days get colder and colder in this season.

Our Pink Lemonade Body Butter also features Karanj Oil which is known to relieve itching skin and some wounds; Grape Seed Oil leaves a light satin feeling on the skin and is known to have some anti-aging benefits as well as keeping your skin supple and    giving your skin an even tone.

Many are the benefits of Shea Butter for skin, its known to help relieve dry and itching skin, assists with softening stretch marks, moisturizes chapped skin, wrinkles, signs of aging, soothes rough skin, helps with eczema, skin rashes, dermatitis, and can be used in massage to relieve muscle aches and tension.

I like this Body Butter after a long day, and I need a mental pick me up. I just jump in the shower and while my skin is still wet I smooth on this Body Butter.  Smells yummy and feels really good on the skin.

Brown Sugar Body Polish

Ok, one of the things I’ve been working on is scrubs. It started with a request from one of my faithful clients and just grew from there. I really want to get into offering fresh scrubs for our clients, but for now we have this wonderful Brown Sugar Body Polish, and then we have Hawaiin Kona Coffee Scrub, and our Gourmet Brown Sugar Scrub (1st one created) with lots of goodies in it.
The Body Polish features Organic Raw Sugar and a host of our favorite carrier oils, honey, and grapefruit seed extract. Of course I was the first to try it and I love it.

I’m loving the research and knowledge that I gain from taking this step of faith in my business so, I’ll see how far it can go. Happy Scrubbing! Maybe I need to find a coach or somebody I can learn from hands on.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to share your thoughts.

One Thing Leads to Another

Ok, I’m feeling so honored right now.

A loyal client of mine came to pick up a jar of the new Cocoa Butter Almond Body Butter the other day.

She was ranting and raving about how she couldn’t wait to get home to try it so, she applied some to her hands at the first stop light.  Now I’m thinking to myself when she told me that “Good thing its not greasy”…so anyway, she was and is very satisfied with the product.

She called, rather texted me to find out if I was making soaps or scrubs yet and I said no.  She said she loves sugar scrubs and to keep her posted when I start making scrubs.  Well, in an effort to appeal to and keep a client satisfied I began to ask her a series of questions to find out what she looks for in a scrub, and some of her previous experiences with scrubs.  After about 5 minutes of texting back and forth, I kind of had an idea of what to make for her, but I don’t make scrubs right? LOL!

So, I said to her “well, I can pick up a few things and put a scrub together just for you if you like”  I could actually feel the smile on her face as she texted back…oh my God that would be the bomb…she asked if I could make it in the scent that I used in the body butter and of course I said yes.  She went on to say, the body butter smelled so good she wanted to eat it.  I guess that’s a plus, but I don’t recommend it.

So I’ve been doing some research as to what I want to include in her scrub to make it luxurious and pleasing for her.  I guess this means once the word gets out I’ll be doing custom sugar scrubs too. 

One thing can definately lead to another if you keep your options open.

Cocoa Butter Almond

It’s Body Butter Folks! and I love it.

I had been wanting to create a body butter with cocoa butter for the longest time. Some of our clients like Shea Butter, but are die hard Cocoa Butter Fans. So, I wanted to offer them something else besides the normal hard Cocoa Butter that they normally buy. Now don’t misunderstand me…I’m from the “old school” and Cocoa Butter is and was a staple in my house at all times, but it can be a turn off when you really don’t wanna smell like chocolate (hard to believe right, LOL) all day.

So I just included the wonderful Raw Cocoa Butter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (yummy), Sweet Almond Oil, and a splash of Almond Fragrance to sweeten it up just a touch, some Corn Starch so you slide away with greasiness and VIOLA!

I put some on my skin and it melted right in. Before I could post to our clients and friends that it was ready they were ordering and coming by to pick up their little pots of goodness. I was really inspired by one client who said “I love this butter” and hoping to sell out soon…but of course I’ll just make more.
In my rush to get it out to our clients, I still have yet to take photos….so, maybe I’ll post one later. By the way, the only ingredients in this Body Butter are the ones you’ve already read about…no preservatives added. Thanks for reading.
Do you use Body Butter? What’s your favorite?

Options

Okay so, I haven’t written much of anything in a while. Trust me it is NOT due to lack of things to write about. LOL…there is a ton of things going on that I wish not to be going on, and a ton more of things that I wish were going on, but are NOT.

I have been doing alot of research for some product sources and resources for suppliers of things that I need to create new body butters, ointments, and other products for Fragrance Cafe’. That keeps me so occupied that by the end of the day after marketing as much as possible, research, and note taking I’m too exhausted to write anything but Hello and Good Night.

Anyway, I have come to a small delima. We create our body butters out of some pretty delicate butters and oils. We have clients and friends, out of state, that want to order our products, but I hate, really hate shipping our butters in the warmer summer months. I mean just imagine you order a body butter and by the time it gets to you, it’s body soup, LOL! Yes, our clients are happy to throw it right into the fridge to bring it back to being solid, but I just rather that they wouldn’t have to go through that.
Is there anybody else out there that has these types of products and face the same problem? If so, what are you doing about it? I really need some other options here.

I look forward to your helpful comments.

Naturally Good

Naturally GoodA friend of mine came to visit. She had decided to be a blessing so, I in return wanted to be a blessing as well. I gave her a 2 oz. Jar of our All Natural Body Balm. It is made with natural ingredients(Raw African Shea Butter, EV Olive Oil, Evening Primrose, and Karanj Oil just to name some)and has no preservatives. I just wanted to be able to give her something so, I also included some of our fragrances from the Fragrance Cafe’. Her response was much better than expected, especially the next day when she called very early in the morning, it’s always good to wake up to a praise report, going on and on about how soft the Body Balm made her hands feel. She even went on to mention that it is better than a particular name brand that she uses, but of course I will not name, but I’ll just say that a lot of “us” use the brand.
Any way she was so pleased with it that she wanted me to create her a larger jar because we only make the 2 oz. Body Butter Shot and the 4 oz. jar of the product. I am so pleased at how well this product is going over. It makes me want to get out my creative hat and go back into the lab to create something else.

You can find out more about this product by going to our Fragrance Cafe’ page on Facebook.
