For years now, I have been into reducing the amount of chemicals that are in the beauty and personal care products that we use. I have experimented with making my own deodorant, lotion, shampoo, soap, lipgloss & hair pomade; just to name a few. Now, my family has really liked some of my products, and others they refuse to use! Stay tuned for more posts about that later!
Anyhow, I recently met a wonderful woman named Karita. She has an all natural soap & skincare line. She even has pet care products! Karita has been a part of the Farmer's Market for over 20 years. Her wonderful all natural soaps are also featured in several of the stores around the area. Well I just had to see what all the buzz was about, so I tried some of her products.
My family and I are big fans now! Two of our favorites are the Shampoo Bars in Lemon & Rosemary, and I will tell you why. I had never used a shampoo bar before, so I was skeptical. My girls and I have a lot of hair, and usually we have to use a good portion of conditioner to be able to even comb through it. My husband uses a pomade in his hair, and a lot of natural products don't get the residue out of his luscious locks. Well let me tell you, these bars leave your hair feeling soft, clean and tangle free! We were so impressed with the results, we have ditched our other shampoo & conditioners.
The Karita's Aroma Exquisite Skin Creme, is "exquisite" indeed! I love the signature smell, which is a blend of vanilla, patchouli, & lavender. It leaves your skin feeling silky! We have even tried the Pet Shampoo on our pup, and not only does it leave his coat soft, but it repels fleas as well!
Now, although I love to DIY, I really see no reason to make my own shampoo & skin cream at this time, because we are perfectly happy with Karita's Handmade!
