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.

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

Product additions; Bath Bombs and Sugar scrub product

Such a Pumpkin Cupcake Bath Bomb Product

Holiday Arrivals

We are moving with a full head of steam into the holidays and we wanted to add some to the fun and excitement.  We have added several new scents and fragrances to our product lineup.  In addition to the existing cupcakes, we have added Hello Holidays, Such a pumpkin, and Strawberry shortcake scents.  We have also added these scents to our existing sugar scrub product line

Body Butters

Of course, we have our famous all healing body butter.  We have added “healing bomb” to the collection of body butters.  This healing bomb is the absolute very first version of the recipe that Teana created for me when I burnt myself in the accident.  It is the best version for healing significant wounds to the skin, or when focusing on the reduction of scars and other types of skin damage.  It has a slightly heavier application feel when applied to the skin.

The other versions have for the most part the same healing ingredients, but have a slightly lighter thinner feel when applied.  They are also all healing and used by thousands to soften the skin from head to toe.  Seriously the only difference other than the fragrance from the essential oil, is how it feels when applying it.

GIfts

All of our products are great for the everyday treatment of your largest organ; the skin.  They also make exciting and fun gifts for the office and other presents, both personal and professional. If you are looking for some specific combination or would like to personalize the labeling let us know.

Social media

We would also appreciate your interaction with our facebook page when you have a minute.  Until next time, don’t hesitate to send us an email, call us on the phone, or see us at one of our farmers markets.

Emulsifiers – Definition and our thoughts

Anti Emulsifiers

At the “With Love” company we are opposed to the use of emulsifiers in our products.

Definition:  A substance that stabilizes an emulsion, in particular a food additive used to stabilize processed foods.

We are focused on providing clean, as natural, and close to the source products as possible.  The use of emulsifiers and trying to force to different types of objects to combine can lead to some very unnatural effects when introduced to our body.

At With Love LV the creation and use of all natural, without emulsifiers, products is a corner stone to making great products.  We don’t and won’t use emulsifiers in our products.
