t.w.i.n.k., aka Two Women in Nature's Knowledge

We are wives, mothers, and working women in addition to our partnership in t.w.i.n.k. …we’re busy, as you might imagine, but we love what we do so we keep at it!

t.w.i.n.k. arose out of the desire to give ourselves better consideration by quitting the use of chemically-based, questionably-sourced, and factory-made skin and body products (often containing a great deal of petroleum derivatives). We were tired of buying into a profit-driven system that couldn’t and would never care about the effects it has on the environment or the people who use and make its products – so we started making our own! It didn’t take long to realize that other women (and men, and babies too) shared our concerns and could benefit from our labor.

Karen and Rhiannon are the brains behind the beauty, and we individually hand-make every single one of the products in that we sell.

    Owner, Maker, Soap/bodycare Crafter, Web Administrator, Business Manager, Recipe Creatress

    I am a mom of two and a full-time workforce warrior in addition to my contributions to t.w.i.n.k. beauty, which center around soaps, lotions, and other body care. I'm kind of a mad scientist of recipes for our products and design the marketing too.

  • Karen

    Owner, Maker, Customer Service, Order Filling, Maker Of Soaps, Mineral Products, And Lip Colors

    I'm the queen of customer service and orders, and I make all the mineral cosmetics for t.w.i.n.k. as well as soaps. I'm a working mother of three with a deep interest in natural living and DIY, and I LOVE etsy!

Shop policies

T.w.i.n.k. beauty is the culmination of our development of products we use on ourselves and our families. We make all of our products with love and awareness, and are always open for suggestions on how to make our products better.
As busy moms (with five small children between the two of us) the time we can devote to our business is limited. We try very hard to respond to questions and comments in a timely manner, but sometimes our other duties take precedence. Thank you for your patience!
