Mother-daughter duo, Suzie and Jessica makeup the hands of Cure Handmade- a small batch bath goodies and skincare line in East Austin
Handmade soap is a great Mothers Day gift, what is your most popular product? And why do you think that is?
Our most loved products are made with espresso. We make both a coffee scrub and a coffee soap that contain fresh ground organic espresso and cacao powder. The smell is loved for it's sweet, rich, and complex scent. Coffee is also an excellent antioxidant which enhances circulation and skin elasticity.
Does living and making soap in Austin, Texas influence the ingredients you use?
We source our ingredients locally whenever possible. Buying herbs, florals and natural additives from local businesses is important to us. We are always looking to collaborate with local suppliers, creatives, and craftsmen in our city.
What’s next for Cure?
We are working on expanding our line further during Summer 2015. Our plans include a new face care line and a mother/baby line. We're very excited to create more products that benefit our customers, and to learn and grow from our experiences.
And lastly, what is your all time favorite scent(s)?
We model many of our essential oil blends on a combination of floral and citrus. My favorite blend is Lavender and Bergamot. Jessica loves Rose and Tangerine.
Thanks for sharing, ladies!
