Intentions' Shop Announcement

All my soaps and lip balms start from wonderful California oils: olive, avocado, almond, grape seed, apricot kernel, safflower, and the golden, sunflower. Lucky me to be surrounded to the north by Napa and to the south by the Central Valley, most of my oils are locally grown and locally processed! In my daily drives I pass fields of golden sunflowers, yellow safflower, green grape valleys and row after row of pink almond fields! Imports are kept to a minimum, but oh my, shea and cocoa butter, mango and coconut are lovingly utilized to their perfection.

My skin care products from natural ingredients, are artistically hand created to bring you joy!

I use essential oils and cosmetic fragrance oils because fragrance, in all it's varied forms, is such an important part of my products! For colorants, brilliant micas, clays, oxides and ultramarines almost have the rainbow covered, with cosmetic colorants filling in for the elusive reds.

Making soaps is a passion. As an artistic medium, I have yet to meet a more fickle seductress! There's a reason soap making folklore impresses one to only stir counter clockwise, preferably during a full moon and warns of soap fairies' capriciousness! Soapmaking conjures up some fearsome conflicts. Who knew acidic oils and basic hydroxides could have such fierce attitudes!

Elegant, unique and fun, my artisan soaps and lotions will convince you of magic.

All my soaps start with wonderful oils, balanced based on whether I'm trying to achieve an extremely mild bar, a ferocious bubbling bar, a bar with a little more hefty cleaning for skins very good at producing their own oils, or my favorite, a bar perfectly balanced for daily showering without leaving skin dry. I always had to apply moisturizer, every day after every shower. Until I started making my own soap.

I strive to keep coconut and palm oils to a minimum. Being imported they require long transportation environmental costs and the palm oil production controversy is not sufficiently solved.
