Taking the leap

I've been putting this off for a long time and now I feel ready to take the plunge into the skin care arena. I'm a wife to a great guy and and mom of four amazing children. They've all experienced the evolution my skin care concoctions. I've been hand-crafting lotions and creams for some time now in my home and have found lotion and cream-making to be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. I love knowing what is in my cream and what I'm putting on my skin. It's very empowering to know that I can control how I nourish my skin.
Right now I specialize in producing whipped shea butter and especially like working with essential oils. I'm looking forward to sharing my experiences with those of you who have a love and value for hand-crafted creams and lotions. My shop will initially launch with my whipped shea butters and later include lotions, hair creams and and soaps. I'm excited to begin!

    I began making creams and body butters about 5-6 years ago. Making and using my own creams has been so rewarding. I'm looking forward to sharing with you.

Hello and thank you for taking a look at my shop. I hope you will enjoy my custom hand-crafted creams and soaps and bath treats. I am the sole creator of your body products here at CherriRub. I make items in small batches so that I can still be wife, mom, nurse, student, know the rest... Everything I make, my family and I use and have used for years because they've worked for us to improve our health and well-being. I think everyone should benefit from good, wholesome products for your skin. That's sometimes a challenge to find in the market, but I'm willing to make it and share what I make with you!

Body butters will only be shipped during the cooler months starting late September through May and lotions/creams throughout the year (when in stock) as there is minimal risk for melting or degradation. Some items can be adjusted if you have allergies to certain ingredients, just send me a message or write a note when you place your order. I will try my best to accommodate your needs if time allows.

I craft all my soaps using the cold-process method, so soap stock will vary based on what is on the curing rack. Check back to see what's in the shop or follow me on Instagram @CherriRub to see what I'm making that week. I do my best to use the least amount of unnecessary ingredients as possible while still maintaining the natural integrity and quality. Some of my soaps will have micas (minerals most commonly used in makeup) and fragrance oils but for the most part, if I can use certain plant based items for coloring, I will choose that option. While my first love is the simplicity and beauty of all-natural handmade soap, I do love playing with and coloring soap! It's so much fun!

I look forward to answering any questions you might have while here at my shop. Feel free to send me an Etsy message or e-mail and I'll be sure to respond within 24 hours. Thank you for your interest.
