Not all body butters are the same

Searching and Gathering information about Body Butter

I recently started a search to see how the rest of the world was creating their products and the ingredients in what is called body butter.  While I firmly believe in our body butter, it is important to me to understand what others are making, the ingredients being used, and the customer’s value in body butter.  Obviously, there will always be competition for customers, differences in products, and perceived values, the constant evaluation, and comparison of our products will ensure we are providing our customers what is important to them.

So, I decided to do some research to address my hypothesis that Not All Body Butters are the same.  I have spent the last 30 days researching on google, reading ingredients, looking at the packaging, and working to understand the world of body butter beyond the bb8_1200body butter at With Love LV that saved my face from a lifetime of scars and damage.

New Locations

We have some exciting news that we are dying to share with all of you that have joined the With Love and Co. team.

We will be opening a new location for all to stock up on your With Love & Co skincare products and simply share a story about life, etc. Of course, our skincare professionals will be there for a one on one.  The thing that we most excited about is being available 7 days a week and sharing the good times with each of you.

The new location is going to be in the Downtown Summerlin Mall at 1825 Festival Plaza Drive Suite 130.  If you don’t know where that is, it is about 100 feet from our usual Saturday Farmers market location.  We will of course continue to have our spot at the market(s), but now we will be available to you 7 days a week.

Keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram pages for more follow up information.  Right now the store is projected for a soft opening on June 15.  Stayed Tuned!

vintage postVintage Market Days Southern Nevada

It is that time of year again and With Love & Co. will have its entire mobile store stocked with your “must have” body products at Vintage Market Days – Fall 2018.  This event is a bi-annual event and features some of the very best in vintage-inspired original art, antiques, clothing, jewelry, outdoor furnishings and of course, the best body products store in the valley – With Love & Co.  With Love will be there with a huge booth and have plenty of sales people giving out free samples of healing balm and more.  As well, I am sure the harrowing story that started With Love is sure to be told a thousand times and will inspire many that have looked into the face of a tragic moment.

The show is held twice a year and runs for a 3 days; Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The people start lining up early on Friday and continue to flow in until the completion of the event on Sunday at 5 pm.  Last years event had an verified attendance of 10,000.  This years event promises to be much larger and currently has over 19,000 RSVPs and that number continues to grow.  You will see an amazing array of products, vendors booths and an astonishing collection of vintage items.  It is arguably the best showing in Las Vegas of antiques, art, creative passions and more.  

A must see event, you can find out more information on our events page and also on the Facebook vintage markets days page.  Will we see you there?  Hoping so.  When you come mention this post and the coupon “Holidays 2018” for 10% off of your purchase.

See you there.  s&t

A Little Goes a Long Way

A Little Goes a Long Way

Our body butter seems to be flying off the shelf and is truly our number 1 seller.  It is what got us started, and is a main stay in our daily sales and with any luck, it will continue.  I guess the purpose of the article is that I wanted to highlight a key feature of the product.  That being that a little bit goes a long way.

If you are a current customer of ours you know that our products are made from all natural raw products.  We work really hard at ensuring that we have the finest, ethically produced, organic ingredients, and that we use raw product.  Our body butter, which is the base of all of our items, is made from raw unrefined butters, shea, cocoa, mango, etc.  When we make it, we essentially build the recipe by heating up the raw butters using strictly controlled temperatures.  Once all of the ingredients are at the right temperatures, we blend them thus creating the body butter.

little goes imageImmediately following the blending process, the butter is ready to be jarred.  We do this immediately and put it into the jars, small and large, hot.  Unlike so many on the market, we don’t whip our body butter.  Jarring the body butter while hot provides a very soft, but yet very dense product.  Providing our customer with a honest, full jar of body butter has been a signature of our from the beginning.  We certainly realize that whipping air into the body butter would provide us with a little more profit, but at what cost.  Our integrity?  Our honesty?

Certainly integrity and honesty are high on our list of our personal traits and of those that work with With Love & Co.  Why would we not have the same attitude toward our products.  The benefit of forgoing the whipping process is that our body butter goes a long way.  Or as the sign in the picture states, “A little goes a long way”.

Come by one of our many farmers markets and test it out for your self.  Take a small pea size amount from one of our sample jars (lavender, sugar bear, lemongrass, coconut, toasted vanilla, healing balm) you will agree.  A little goes a long way at With Love & Co.

New Crew @ With Love & Co.

As we went through our day at the markets yesterday, we realized every now and then one of the staff members (Frosty) would go missing for a few minutes. We would look for him, call him, text him, even tweet to him hoping he was looking at social media. This was on repeat it seemed. We would eventually find him (Frosty) visiting different people in the market. The pictures below were taken on location every time we found him. The gull of this guy!

PICTURES FROM EACH TIME WE FOUND “FROSTY THE BATHBOMB”

Found at the pastry vendor

Found at Mark’s Paracord. Maybe he was getting sharing stories.

Said he missed his days in Paris. Thought eating French bread would perk him up.

Hanging out at Rod’s produce

Sweet tooth being taken care of at C&D Honey.

Eating a pickle

Finally back at work with the rest of the #bathbomb crew.
