We’re definitely going to need some natural pampering after Arts on the Square! Lucky for us, Pure Suds Co. will have all the luxury organic products we’ll need. Check out Jessica’s inspiring story and pick up something special to pamper yourself with at Arts on the Square!
When was Pure Suds Co. started and what inspired it?
Making things from scratch, while learning about raw ingredients and the processes has always intrigued me. After long, taxing days at work, I would find myself reading, researching and dabbling with my own bath and body goods, as a form of stress relief. While I became more comfortable and knowledgeable with certain ingredients and formulas, I would make larger batches to sample out to friends and family, while harping on the importance of natural skin care. Within two years, things evolved to having a steady like minded clientele, that’s been supporting my company every since. Pure Suds Co. was established as an LLC in November of 2008 to join like minded folks in the celebration of pure health and natural pampering, by offering only the very finest in handmade body goods and specialty bathing items. Our ingredients are hand selected, using global and fair trade organizations, which feature all natural and organic, sustainably grown and harvested, non-GMO, SLS, paraben and phthalate free products.
What was your first product and how has the line grown?
Our first line of products were cold processed soap bars, which have now evolved to a unique hot process soap bar, embedded with natural fibers. These specialty soaps are embedded with either dried loofah gourd for exfoliating, or Mediterranean sea wool, for shaving and sensitive areas. The soap remains one of our best selling items, although we now also offer bath bombs, bath teas, organic whipped shea, raw honey soap bars, organic hydrosols, teeth whitener, salt/sugar scrubs and a lip exfoliant.
Tell us a little about how your products and designed and produced.
Each and every item we make is from scratch, using the raw ingredients from our apothecary room and our lab in Clarks Summit, PA. Whether we’re stirring, whipping, mending, shaking, rolling, stamping or flipping, it’s all done by hand. We print, laminate and slice our product labels too, which will be nearing 2,000 separate types this year. We take a huge amount of pride in offering that aspect to the community and now, on a national and international scale.
Why is organic important to you?
When you support products that are organic, you are supporting a much larger picture, that some don’t understand the effects of. You are supporting sustainability of our planet as a whole, while protecting future generations. In the big picture, supporting organic trades promotes a less toxic environment for all things living, which is very important to us.
Do you have a best seller?
Our best selling items are our Loofah Embedded Soap bars, which exfoliate while your cleansing AND our Organic Whipped Shea Butter, which we call our “skin drink.” They make a pretty wonderful combination together too. You can exfoliate those dead cells away and feel really fresh and clean, before applying the rich, creamy butter, to hydrate.
