Do you know what your skin is doing?

Food for thought: Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it. Scary, isn’t it? Read labels and know what you’re using.

We cannot wait to see these tour guides again!

We’re like kids on Christmas break – excited, giddy, and downright bouncy.  Oak Alley Plantation does it to us every time.  We always say this, but this arts and crafts festival will be the best.

On Saturday October 26 and Sunday the 27th, we’ll be back in Vacherie.  This will be our first trip to Oak Alley since we opened the retail store and we’ll have new products with us.  Three new coconut milk vegan soaps, a selection of fall and holiday soy wax cubes, and our new Hair and Scalp Oil will all be on hand.  We’ll also have our reformulated Dead Sea Mud Mask and 100% Pure Argan Oil with us.

Will you join us on Saturday or Sunday?

Changes in our fundraising program

cover soaps

Try a fundraiser that offers something useful – our natural, handmade soaps!

It’s that time of year already.  Kids of all ages are making the rounds with multiple fundraising catalogs and we wonder how – and if – we’ll find anything we can use for ourselves or as gifts.  With Noir Naturals’ fundraising program, you know you have a product everyone can use.  We launched our fundraising program to offer something different and think the new changes will make it even easier for your organization to stand out and earn more.

Noir Naturals program is available for individual student and student groups of all ages, pre-K through college, to generate income for trips and various causes.  Adult mission and ministry groups are welcome as well.

We now offer three options for our fundraisers.  Customers can purchase bars online from a personalized fundraising website like Haley’s, offline via catalog, or at our retail location in Ponchatoula.

We’ve also increased your organization’s profit on each bar.  Instead of $1.50, your group can earn $2.50 per bar.  There is a small minimum target – just 50 bars.  If each child sells one to two bars, the minimum will be met in no time.   And at prices at just $5 or $6 each, customers may buy more than one bar just because.

There is still no upfront cost unless your organization wants to pre-purchase bars to sell at an event. Imagine setting up a table at the Fall or Holiday Festival and selling out.  You could launch your fundraiser then and have customers swing by Noir Naturals to purchase more.

All of our goat’s milk and coconut milk vegan soap bars are available including our Baby Noir Soaps, Asta Doggie Soaps, and new Powder Puff Goat’s Milk Soap.

Let us help your child’s school, daycare center, club, or group raise money for trips, projects, and more.

We are so excited about our travel schedule this month!  Not only are we making return trips to two of our favorite places, we’re adding another stop to kick off the month.  Join us this weekend in Pass Christian, MS at the Flea Market at Menge.  This market is the largest outdoor market on the Gulf Coast and was featured on Junkin’ with Val and Dave.  Rain or shine, we’ll be there from 8 am until 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday – we cannot wait!

If this weekend is bad for you, come see us at Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, LA on March 16th and 17th.  We love going back to Oak Alley and love the history.  And those Oaks! There’s something for everyone at Oak Alley, including ghosts according to some.

Speaking of return trips, we’re going back to Houma, LA on March 23.  Look for us at the Southdown Marketplace Arts and Crafts Festival.  This one day show features music, food, and a wide assortment of vendors ready to show you what they’ve got.  The plantation and museum will be open, too. Admission is just $5 with children under 12 free.  Rain or shine, we’ll be there from 8 am until 4 pm.

Louisiana State University’s Ag Center’s mission is to innovate, educate, and improve lives; this event does all this and then some.  This week-long event is a showcase for youth and those who care for and exhibit livestock.  Louisiana 4H and Future Farmers of America members from across the state will be on hand for educational events, competition, awards, and livestock industry information.  This is not just about farming, but about shaping and encouraging future leaders.
