Hi everyone, I make vegan soap and wanted to post my most recent E-mail update on the board in case anyone is interested in checking out what I do. Thanks!
As usual we’ve been very busy over at the Zeep workshop making new soap and also selling at a local farmers market. If you live in Olympia we’re selling at the Tumwater Market on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. It’s located on Capitol Blvd. right next to the Eagan’s Drive In, come say hi. We’re also gearing up to sell at a few fests this summer, one of which being the Olympia Hemp, Love and Freedom Fest towards the end of August. We’re excited about that one, should be a good time. Now on to the soap!
New Soap Varieties
A crisp and spicy bouquet awakens the mind. Quite unique and contains Almond oil and Hazelnut oils to smooth and soften.
[u]Bergamot Mint & Lemon[/u]
Flowery notes with hints of citrus in this aromatic bar. If you like our sugar scrub with the same scent, try out the soap!
The James River soap has been a big hit once again and we’re currently sold out. Keep an eye out for it’s return in a few weeks. Also, if you’ve not tried out the Vetiver & Fennel soap you’re really missing out. By far, this is one of our favorite bars, we can’t get enough of it. Don’t be scared off by the fennel, it blends extremely well with vetiver. Trust us!
New Products On The Way
We’re experimenting with making our own toothpaste and so far so good. This is a vegan product and we’ll be offering 3 different flavors to start. Hopefully we’ll be launching this new product in the next Zeep update. If you have a request for a flavor to be available please let us know. We’ve been thinking about the typical ones so far which would be Peppermint, Spearmint and Wintergreen. Maybe Fennel also? Let us know your thoughts.
[u]Mens Shaving Cube[/u]
We’ve created a shaving bar for men (I’m sure women will like the spicy scent also) that comes in a handy cube shape. You can use it as is or place it in a cup to be used with a bristle shaving brush. This bar is scented with Allspice Essential Oils and contains Kaolin Red Clay to help with oil removal and Aloe Butter to soften skin after the shave. This one is currently curing on the rack and has 2 and a half more weeks to go.
We’ve been working very hard here locally to contact and talk with local shops in the downtown area and co-op stores about carrying our soap. Things are looking good and we want to keep reaching out so please let us know if you have a local shop in your town that you would like to see our soap carried in. Send us the store name and any other contact info you may have and we’ll send them a promo package right away. We appreciate all the help we can get.
Thanks for the support as always!
We’re very excited about this months update because we’ve got some new and exciting products available in the shop! The summer has been busy for us as we vend at fests in and around Olympia and perfect new product recipes. Check out the update below for all the great info on our new and restocked products!
[u]Allspice Shaving Cube[/u]
Our old fashioned shaving cube is scented with allspice essential oil and contains ground cloves. Kaolin red clay removes oil while aloe butter leaves skin smooth. Use as is or place it in a cup to be used with a bristle shaving brush! The shaving cube weights approximately 5.5 ounces.
We’re excited to launch our old fashioned toothpaste made with simple vegan ingredients. Cleans and brightens teeth while leaving your mouth fresh! 6oz. of paste comes in a reusable twist top tin and we’ve made 3 flavors available at this time: Fennel, Peppermint & Spearmint. All ingredients are listed online in the shop, give it a try!
We’ve been making dog shampoo for our 2 pups and love the results so we’re now offering it up on the Zeep site! 2 varieties are available and both contain a base recipe that leaves the coat glistening and the skin nourished. [u]Does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate.[/u] Decyl Polyglucose is a plant derived substitute which is 100% biodegradable and we have chosen to use this instead. Each bottle contains 16oz. of shampoo.
[u]Eucalyptus & Ylang Ylang[/u]
Flowery notes of Ylang Ylang combine with the shimmering tang of eucalyptus. Soothing, and recommended for all skin types.
[u]Green Tea, Ginger & Lemon[/u]
Warming ginger lends a refreshing spice to a green tea infused blend. Recommend for all skin types.
New Products On The Way
We’re working out the finishing touches on our human shampoo and plan to have that available on the next update. Our ideas so far are for a Sage scent and also a Lavender scent. Both will be in 16oz. bottles. If you have a request for a shampoo scent please let us know now and we may be able to accommodate the most popular ones. Thanks!
Our plan for a deodorant is to make a liquid roll on using essential oils that work on keeping bacteria at bay to prevent odor from starting. We like keeping our ingredients simple yet powerful so we’re working hard on this recipe and look forward to it’s launch in the future.
We’re working very hard to contact and talk with shops in all states about carrying our products. Things are looking good and we want to keep reaching out so please let us know if you have a local shop in your town that you would like to see our products carried in. Send us the store name and any other contact info you may have and we’ll send them a promo package right away along with a surprise for yourself! We appreciate all the help we can get.
