As this business grows, one of the things I won’t let change is my belief in what we sell. I want my customers to be able to trust that I will be honest about our products. Buying online can be a risk - from sizing, to fit, to quality. It's great that I can talk directly to my customers and explain what I love and don’t love about every single item I sell. What works for one person might not for the next, so not only can I show you in-person, but you can get testimonials and ask questions of other customers during our live shows. I am constantly amazed at how this community of people has bonded together and supported each other and how they really appreciate the honesty we promise.
We love you guys and want you to know we take great pride in sourcing quality products you can count on with customer service you can trust! Wig Pictured is Kaitlyn
I also want my customers to know as much as they can about where our products come from and how they’re made. If you’ve watched our shows, you know that our spa products do not stay on our shelves long! Each one is made by my dear friend, Mindy, who I have known for nine years. In the last three years, she was inspired to start this small business because of her daughters and granddaughters who sometimes join her in the process. But her talents don’t stop there. From quilting to making beautiful purses, and tons of other sewing goodies, Mindy is amazing! But what started for her as soaps, has developed into a whole Chic line, and all because our customers have fallen in love with these products just as much as we have and continue to come back for more and more. From the amazing oils to the incredible scrubs, facial and spa bars, foot soaks, lip scrubs, lip balms, and the cutest seasonal goodies, we’ve got you covered (literally).
Me and the Incomparable Mindy
But we don’t always have time to talk about how amazing these products really are, so I thought this would be a great place to really give you the details about what makes these products so special.
First, all of our spa products are strictly made with ingredients you can actually read! No strange chemicals, harsh sulfates, parabens or any other junk you see in that long list of ingredients in those department store brands.

To prove it, we did our research and put together descriptions of what’s in our scrubs, oils, balms, and soaps. Go ahead and turn that label around and know exactly what you’re getting. And then get those fast fingers ready, because these spa products go seriously fast!
Emulsifying wax is usually derived from vegetable oils simply to keep oil and water from separating in different creams and lotions.
The Butters (shea cocoa) These kinds of butter are known to soften skin and improve elasticity and have even been used against acne, eczema, and stretch marks.
Shea is a nut harvested from regions in Africa.
Cocoa is a bean found in South America.

The Oils (jojoba, soybean, sunflower, avocado, coconut, olive, palm, castor, tamanu, tea tree, rice bran) These plant-based oils can be found in nearly every beauty product on the shelves these days. With so many benefits, it’s not surprising to see why. We found this website from Allure Magazine to be pretty informative on the specifics, but the bottom line is that these oils are amazingly effective without being scary.
Calendula is a flowering plant that is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. We’ve had so many comments on how the body oils are helping calm inflammation and flare-ups of all sorts of conditions. Reading your comments on how you’re using these products on yourself, your children, sharing with other family and friends - it gives me happy chill bumps! Just amazing and so gratifying!
Phenonip is a very effective, but still natural preservative. In their raw form, all of these plant extracts and oils you find in beauty products would spoil very quickly. And no one wants to be spreading mold on their skin! Phenonip prevents bacteria growth and can have a three-year shelf life!

Mica: According to cosmeticsinfo.org “mica is a group of silicate minerals that are widely distributed in different types of rock. Mica often occurs as flakes, scraps, or sheets, and has been used by humans since prehistoric times.” Its job is to add a bit of shimmer to beauty products and give you that glow.
Activated Charcoal has become the latest beauty best-kept secret. With its proven ability to detox your skin and unclog pores, I can’t believe we haven’t all heard of this before recently. But our ACB customers have definitely discovered the power of charcoal. We absolutely love our charcoal bars! You all are constantly telling us about your success stories of clearing up acne and the way it leaves your skin and pores so clean. Here’s a bit more on activated charcoal from Best Health Magazine.

Sodium Hydroxide or (NaOH) also known as lye can be an irritant to some, but, when used properly, is a vital part of the soap making process. Like any beauty product, you want to make sure that if the product causes any irritation, you discontinue use. The most common feedback we get, however, is how clean and soft the soaps make your skin feel.
Fragrance: Fragrance can be a tricky beast. But I said, honesty, right? While the fragrance, or as we prefer, the flavor, of these products is initially the most appealing part, it can cause sensitivities for some people in rare cases. For most, it’s just the icing on top of all of the other great, natural benefits. I mean, the compliment, “oh, you smell good!” is an oddly satisfying compliment, isn’t it?
But if you’re one of those few who either can’t use fragrances or prefer not to, we carry fragrance-free products as well. Get all the smoothing, softening, moisturizing benefits, and skip the sensitivities. I’m calling that a win for everyone!
The product that started it all! Made from local unpasteurized goat milk this is one of the products we are most recognized for! To read more about its benefits and to shop in-stock soaps click here!
DISCLAIMER: While we absolutely love these spa products, we want to make it clear that we are not qualified to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. We speak only from personal experience and the input of our customers.
Natural products may not be safe for everyone. It’s important to be aware of ingredients and talk to your doctor first if you have concerns, sensitivities or allergies. If you have any adverse reactions to any beauty products, please discontinue use and consult a physician immediately.
