Caring for your loofah

We’ve discussed how to make natural soap last longer with a wooden soap dish, but we haven’t discussed caring for your loofah.
Loofah_pic_for_website_1

Exfoliation is a must for smooth skin and loofahs are the perfect tool for the job. They’re available in several materials, but a natural one is recommended by dermatologists.  Personally, our team members love ours, but those of us with sensitive skin must take it easy on use.  An optimal schedule is once or twice a week for those with sensitive skin and up to three times a week for those with regular skin.

How often do you clean or replace your loofah?  Those babies can hoard bacteria and hanging them in the shower to dry isn’t good enough to kill it.  Dermatologists recommend that you get a new one every month and clean them well with an essential oil or bleach solution.

If you’re in the market for a natural loofah, Noir Naturals has one for you.  They’re just $2 each and straight from nature.

How to care for your natural soap dish

A wooden soap dish is pretty and useful.  It can add a little nature to your bath decor and extend the life of your soap bars.  Keeping soap dry between use is key to making it last longer – this is especially true of natural soap.  But how do you care for the soap dish? Don’t worry – it’s easy!

All soap can leave a little gunk behind.  It’s unattractive, but easy to clean.

Dish before

Just run a towel or cleaning rag through the grooves to clean out the gunk and rinse.  Or just run it through the dishwasher.  Let it sit and dry.

Dish when wet

Once it dries, it’s ready to hold your favorite bar of soap again.

Dish when dried

Noir Naturals’ Cypress Wooden Soap Dish is durable, attractive, and has deep grooves that help soap drain well.  It fits in nicely in the kitchen or bath and is just and lasts a long time with proper care.  Get yours for just $4 each and perk up your decor while extending the life of your soap.

A message from Noir Naturals’ owner: A look back and to the future

We’ve had a year and a half in 2013.  Noir Naturals’ owner wanted to share a few words with you.  

As we embark on 2014 I wanted to do a quick look-back at 2013.  In August we opened our retail store, but my wife and I had to make a tough decision in November to close the retail store, due to my health.  My hours at the store robbed me of time to fully focus on my recovery.  With the flexible work schedule I now have, I am able to attend my various weekly pulmonary rehab sessions, and rest in between my work. Having another retail store in the future is not out of the question. For now however my focus needs to be on my recovery.

We are still located in Ponchatoula and all customers are welcomed to visit my workshop.  Simply give us a call to set an appointment to come by.  Our online store is always open 24/7 and we’ll meet some of you throughout the year at craft fairs and shows like we always do.  This Fall we were able to see quite a few online customers face to face at shows.  It’s always a pleasure to meet you in person.

I am very pleased to report that 2013 was a great year for our sales.  We saw a vast increase in individual sales and wholesale accounts.  We added another member to our team and have a number of exciting product plans for 2014.

Thank you for being loyal customers of Noir Naturals. We wish you all a prosperous New Year!

Remember, we’re closed on December 31 and January 1 to celebrate the new year.  Any orders received on those days will be filled on January 2.

Message from Noir Naturals’ owner: Changes

Hi everyone,
 
It is with deep regret to share the news on a difficult decision my wife and I had to make. Effective December 22nd we will be closing the store due to my health. We really enjoyed having the store which made it an even harder decision. We made some great connections, gained new customers and major wholesale accounts as well.
 
During my recent hospitalization over the week of Thanksgiving my pulmonologist gave me a serious warning that I needed to reduce my work schedule to focus more on my health. Having to be in the store 40+ hours of the week was not helping my recovery along, and the doctor advised that if I continue at this rate I could have a fatal end. With the store closed and a part-time flexible weekly schedule, I will be able to fully concentrate on my pulmonary rehab and get better at a faster pace. I am getting better currently, but slower than I should be.
 
The good news is that though the store is closing, Noir Naturals is not. We will open by appointment and everyone is welcomed to come by to shop like in the past, or catch a glimpse of products being made. Just like in the past you can contact us and let us know when you would like to come by and we’ll be waiting for you. Our telephone number will remain the same and we will still be at all our regular shows, and a few news ones in 2014. We are also working on our list of new products for next year, all of which you requested and we are very excited.
 
We will consider a store again in the future but right now my recovery is paramount. We wish to thank you for all of your support, concern, well wishes and prayer over the past year. God bless!
 
Charles
