A Bigger Purpose

Good Morning!!!!

Hope everyone is doing well.

I have to say; “I love the excitement opening an online store is giving me!” You never know when you’re going to get a sell, but it’s a lovely surprise when it happens. Yesterday I did my first hundred dollar sale! I’ve sold that much before, but this was the first time I sold that much at once in my shop. I packed that order so fast!

Then I had a friend of mine tell me how much my products have helped her with her skin condition. I initially started making soap because I wanted to increase the health and look of my skin; had no idea that it was going to be some peoples medicine! I looove it though! Love knowing I’m creating something that not only feels good but also helps with skin irritations.

I feel so blessed that my products serve a bigger purpose than just smelling good. I can remember being in my early teens, asking those around me about my skin and how it looked or felt. I’ve always taken pride in that, because I know that your skin is one of the biggest factors of your attractiveness. Without healthy skin you don’t appear as attractive and healthy to others as you could with healthy glowing skin. When your skin is poppin’ so is your confidence and health. Many times you can tell how healthy someone is just by looking at their skin.

Also many of these skin conditions can be rectified through topical applications and herbs. That’s why so many people are extremely pleased with my product; because it not only leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling amazing, it also gives your skin those nutrients other soaps and detergents fail to.

Hope you enjoyed finding out why I started and why I continue to do what I do. Many will say medicine is the only way to go for a lot of these skin aliments; but I don’t believe that. I believe the earth provides us with everything we need. I’m not saying I’m a 100% naturalist; I’m only saying your medicine is your food.

Try a bar of LuLu’s Lavish Lathers. Your skin will thank you for it!

Health and your skin

As some of you know, I have a New Shopify store. My goal is to educate the masses on the importance of using natural products rather than synthetic ones. This post is a new post I created today for my online store. If you have time or are interested in trying something that is going to make your skin feel soft and smooth over time , go check out LuLusLavishLathers.com

Good morning hope you’re doing well.

Too many times we eat, put things on our skin and participate in things that may not be the best for our health. Known fact: most of us had very busy lives before this epidemic. So I’m sure you were putting things in your mouth and on your skin that weren’t good for you. Many times because you’re so in a rush, you really don’t see any importance of caring or you believe the developers of these things are looking out for your best interest.
I started out believing these companies cared about the people they were selling their products too. The sad truth is; many companies only care about the $. Like the say, “Cash is King.” I have a different take on that. I believe if you care about your customers and provide them with something that is a healthier option that won’t promote the very diseases we’re trying to fight off, they’ll be more inclined to shop with you.
Many of us know that our skin is the largest organ on our body, but we still continue to bathe with these detergent based soaps and body washes. For women, I’m sure it’s because it smells good, and for men it’s pretty much the same. The only thing about scents and women’s feminine parts is; if they’re not natural scents they usually through off the pH.

pH-In chemistry, pH is a scale used to specify how acidic or basic a water-based solution is. Acidic solutions have a lower pH, while basic solutions have a higher pH. At room temperature, pure water is neither acidic nor basic and has a pH of 7.

Next thing you know you’re walking around smelling like a bag of dead fish.
I’m sure you don’t want that. So instead of mindlessly picking up a soap or fragrance because it smells good, turn it around and if you can’t pronounce half of the ingredients, you know that it isn’t for you.
The products LuLu’s Lavish Lathers offers are always designed with you in mind. All ingredients used in our soaps are made from organic and therapeutic resources. That’s why our motto is ” Soaps that cater to you” because these soaps not only cleanse, they hydrate, condition, and feed your skin the vitamins it needs to thrive.

Good morning Good People!!!!

 

How is your morning going?….. I hope just as well as you want it to be. Hopefully you’re somewhere making money, sleeping or spending time with someone you love.

 

Well today I’ve just been real focused on everything that I am trying to get off of the ground. I mean really, when am I not focused on that? Come to think about it, I have been working on creating different things for a couple of years now. I’m sure something is going to take off, I’m just not sure what. At the current time I’m working on my soap company, trying to build it up from the ground up. I know this is going to take a lot of blood sweat and tears. I’m ready for it.

I never knew I would enjoy making soap so much, but I really do. And the great thing about my soaps are…. they’re made with natural ingredients and love. Most of them are made with essential oils, such as peppermint, eucalyptus, tea tree, patchouli, calendula, chamomile and many others. I also have some that are made from fragrance oil.

I first began making soap because I thought it would be a fun hobby; as I’m sure most other people have. But then, I started giving it to friends and family and they began telling me how much they enjoyed the soap and how good it made their skin feel.

Then I started to believe I could make a business out of it. Mainly because all the ingredients I use are beneficial for your skin and over all health. My products are nothing like most commercial products. It is very different. Once you try it, I truly doubt you would want to go back to your current brand of soap. Every bar is highly conditioning, therapeutic and immensely gentle on the skin.

Hey Good People!!!

 

I know it’s been a while since I’ve last made a post. Reason for that is I am trying to get a brand and company off of the ground. I’m not sure if you remember a couple of posts ago. I was talking about getting into skin care. Well I kind of have. Everything isn’t really set into motion yet. Well… on my part it kind of is.

It took me forever to find something that was worth my time and I think that I have found something other than writing that I enjoy doing; and that thing is making soap!!! I never thought that I would enjoy it so much, but I really do! So because I enjoy making it so much I’ve started to sell it!! The only thing now is getting buyers. I know that this is going to be the hardest task, because people don’t trust just anyone or thing being sold over the internet. It’s a precaution and good thing for them, but it’s terrible for me. Because I back my product 100%!!!

Every oil that goes into each bar of soap is meant to only increase the health of your skin. I use things like organic virgin coconut oil, virgin olive oil, canola oil, Shea Butter and a list of other things that have been proven to be good for the skin and your over all health. I also am a big consumer of essential oils. Some of the soaps are scented by fragrances, but many are by essential oils. Because I don’t know about you, but I want to be enveloped in something I know is going to benefit me in the long run.  

Through out this post are pictures of different soaps I have created over the months. Some are in my Etsy shop (SoapsByShad.Etsy.com) and others are soaps that are soon to be displayed. If you are interested, please make sure to click the link and you’ll be taken to my shop.
