Testimonials

"The lotions, creams, soaps, candles and liquid hand soaps are all really fine quality. The natural ingredients come w/ multiple choices for different uses, feels and scented or unscented. I buy the hand soap by the gallon." - Holly A | Haw Creek, NC

"As an Orthopedic Surgeon I wash my hands dozens of times a day, and scrubbing for surgeries really dries out my hands and arms. After only one application of your salve, my hands and arms felt better than they have in ages." - Bobbie H MD

"Love your Shave Soap, Kimberly! I get a close, smooth shave with significantly less irritation and virtually no razor burn." - James M | Arden NC

"I have been using Lube for the Lips daily since 2014. I recommend this to anyone looking for a lip moisturizer and it is a bonus that it has sunscreen in it." - Betty C | Sarasota, FL
