About

You’re a natural beauty; keep your beauty natural.

I started making my own soap at the age of 13. I enjoyed melting down the clear soap base, adding fragrance and color, pouring this mixture into a mold and giving away my creations as gifts.

In 2009, I realized my favorite body wash contained a host of ingredients I couldn’t pronounce. I began researching some of the long chemical names and found that almost every beauty product I owned contained chemicals that have been linked to cancers, birth defects, and other awful ailments. So, returning to my thirteen-year-old enthusiasm, I began whipping up my own cosmetic concoctions.

When I launched the Poor & Pretty blog in 2009, my favorite posts were of the do-it-yourself nature {partly because I live on a limited budget and partly because I’m a crafter to the core}. I also loved sampling cupcakes from around the country and sharing my findings. I continued creating my own soaps, lip balms, lotions, scrubs, astringents, and other beauty potions, sharing my recipes with Poor & Pretty readers. In early 2010, I combined my passion for bath products and cupcakes into one: cupcake soaps! My cupcake soaps debuted on Etsy in December 2010.

In the summer of 2011, I added preservative-free miniature bath bombs {bath truffles}, all-natural lip balm {coco balm}, and jars of buttercream-scented whipped soap scrub {jars of frosting} to the Poor & Pretty Bath Sweets and Body Treats lineup. In the fall of 2012, I added Coco Body Balm, an all-natural solid lotion bar, perfect for winter or taking care of year-round rough patches of skin.

In 2016, I re-branded as florapothecarie, a line of 100% natural bath & body products, made by Sami Jo Jensen in Connecticut. I use only the highest quality natural, organic, and fair trade certified ingredients in my expertly crafted sugar and salt scrubs, bathing salts, lip and body balms, whipped body butters and more. My products contain absolutely no artificial colorants, fragrances, parabens, preservatives, or other toxic chemicals. You’re a natural beauty; keep your beauty natural.

Always:
+ 100% natural
+ hypoallergenic
+ vegan / cruelty-free

Never any:
+ aluminum
+ artificial colorants or dyes
+ artificial fragrances
+ formaldehyde
+ parabens
+ phthalates
+ preservatives
+ propylene glycol
+ sodium chloride
+ sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate (sls)

Because I care about what I put into my body {and what you put into yours!}, I formulate my products with high quality natural and organic ingredients. My products do not contain parabens, propylene glycol or SLS. None of the ingredients or final products are tested on animals, nor do they contain animal products, so they are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

I have also appeared on Better Connecticut: http://t.co/esGn4BsU

Thanks for stopping by!
