Happy Fall!  We just plain love this time of year.  The temperature starts to change, nights get a little longer, and we hit the road.  We love the fall show season and have a few stops planned.  Before we hit the road, we made some changes.

First, we’ve changed our store hours.  Not by much, but we think you’ll like it. Come see us from 10 am until 6 pm Tuesday through Friday and 9-3 on Saturday.  We’re closed on Sundays and Mondays.

We’re adding new products to the inventory.  New coconut milk vegan soaps are coming and new beeswax cubes are in the works.  Everyl-Ann made her first batch this past weekend while running the shop. In addition, keep your eyes open for the 2013 line of fall and holiday scented soaps and wax cubes.

Finally, we’ve tweaked our show schedule a bit.  Our first stop is in Hammond this weekend.  On Friday, September 27, join us at the 2013 Brews Arts Festival.  This one is strictly for the 21 and over crowd.  From 5-9 pm enjoy music, arts and crafts from local and regional artists, live demonstrations, food by Kevin Cote, fresh homemade sangria, and an extensive selection of beer.  Tickets are $20 per person in advance or $25  at the door.  Get your advance tickets from the Hammond Arts Center during regular gallery hours, by phone at 985-542-7113, or online.  Hope to see you on Friday behind the Arts Center in the Morrison Alley parking lot.

Yes, Fall is Noir Naturals’ prime time!  Learn more about us at NoirNaturals.com, Facebook, Twitter, G+, or Pinterest.


Semi-Wordless Wednesday: It’s Coming

We know it seems like summer just started, but it’s time to start thinking about what comes after.

We’re sorry, kids.  Maybe.  School isn’t that bad, is it?  We won’t mention it to you again for a bit.

Summer Skin Care

We love summer – the relaxing vibe, the fun and fab events, and the down time.  What we don’t love is the excessive heat and its effect on our skin.  But no matter the temperature, Noir Naturals has products that will soothe and pamper our skin.  Yes, we said our. We are customers as well as manufacturers.
According to Denise Mann, summer skin needs exfoliation, moisture, and protection.  Skin will not glow Imageunless the dead cells are moved out of the way, so a good but gentle scrub is a must.  Use a brush before or during a shower to help bring on a healthy glow or use our Dead Sea Salt Body Scrub to help bring on that healthy glow.  Our favorites are Lavender and Key Largo for a tropical summery kick.
Keeping skin moist helps reduce the effects of aging in addition to bringing out the beauty of skin.  Staying hydrated helps keep the body healthy inside and out, so make sure those 8-10 glasses of water are on tap.  Soap selection helps determine how much additional moisture is needed.  Our goat’s milk soaps and coconut milk vegan soaps contain various oils and butters that penetrate, protect, and heal the skin from the inside out.  For those who want more moisture, goat’s milk lotions and body butters fit the bill.  Our formulas do not leave an oily or greasy residue on skin or hands, even on the face.  Unrefined Shea butter works especially well on knees, elbows, and feet.
UV protection is a must!  Make sure you use the optimal level of SPF protection for your skin tone.  If you want to avoid potentially harmful ingredients, make sure to read the product label well or make your own.
Make sure you baby your skin all year to keep a healthy glow.

What do the Noir Men Love?

You would think the guys would be more about manlier fragrances, but their tastes are all over the place. 

We asked our male customers and the women who love them what fragrances they like.  We received a mix of responses, and some surprised us.

The number of lavender lovers caught us off guard.  The last thing you’d expect to hear from a guy is about his love for floral fragrances for themselves, but they do.  Way to go, guys! 

Clean fragrances came in second.  Clean citrus, the ocean, freshly washed laundry, and mountain air make many men happy. 

Coming in last are unexpected fragrances for grooming products – new car, fresh grass, and beer.  While we can understand the lure of new car smell, we cannot see how beer would make a good choice on workdays.

Freshly cut grass is something a lot of our male Noir Naturals fans call one of their favorite fragrances.

Remember, Father’s Day is just around the corner.  He may not expect anything other than the usual tie, t-shirt, or mug, but you can flip the script and give your Leading Man something you could both enjoy.

A message from Noir Naturals’s Owner: Thank You

Image

Thank you all for a fantastic first year. Here’s to many more!

May 19, 2012 marks the 1 year anniversary of my business, Noir Naturals.  Running a business is not an easy task as most of you know.  I am humbled to say that we’ve made it to the 1 year mark and are going strong.  Last May we started Noir Naturals with 24 unique products and now have in excess of 90, and we continue to grow.  We now have products for everyone including babies and doggies.

We’ve had our 12 days of giveaways at Christmas that so many folks enjoyed.  This year we earned our Green Business Certification, recently started a Green Teacher Award Program, made a special hand lotion line for nurses, and launched a soap fundraising program for kids.  Within the first week of the launch of the fundraising program, we started a fundraiser.  I think we are well positioned and ready to enter into year 2.  We have a full Fall Show Schedule in both Louisiana & Texas, and are looking forward to seeing you our wonderful customers again.

We have a few products in the making that we’ve been asked by our customers to manufacture.  To give a sneak peek, some of these products that will be unveiled in the next 12 months are liquid soap, shampoo, and a few other great products.  We owe this success first to God who has given us favor and strength to get this far.  The road was not easy but we made it!  Second, we thank all of our wonderful customers for your support and loyalty.

To celebrate our anniversary we will be having a special 1-day only anniversary sale.  We are allowing you to choose your savings.  If your order total is $30, use coupon code SAVE 5 to save $5.  If your order total is $60, use coupon code SAVE 15 to save $15.  If your order total is $100, use coupon code $SAVE30 to save $30.  These coupons are only valid on our Anniversary date of Saturday, May 19th. Again thank you to all of our customers, and friends for making Noir Naturals the company we are today.

Sincerely,

Charles Kennedy

11 Reasons to Choose Noir Naturals’ Fundraiser Program

At Noir Naturals we believe in supporting the community, especially when it comes to the young community members.  Like others, we have purchased more wrapping paper, calendars, popcorn, and cookies we could ever need just so we could help young friends and family members raise funds for their schools, church youth groups, sports teams, and school clubs.   We were approached by teachers and parents who sought an alternative to the usual that would have mass appeal, be affordable, easy, earth-friendly, and profitable.  After collaboration with local students, teachers, parents, PTO Today, and The Association of  Fundraising Distributors and Suppliers (AFRDS), we created the Noir Naturals Fundraiser Program.

Not only do we make fundraising profitable, we make it easy for students and parents.  We offer useful products found in every home and at just $5-6 a bar, our soaps are affordable and appeal to a wide range of customers.  Your youth organization could earn up to 50% profit with our program and sell to supporters in and out of town.

Why choose Noir Naturals?

1. We only work with one school, club, organization or group at a time, so we can dedicate all of our resources to each fundraiser.

2. We are a small company and manufacture our soaps.  There is no middle man, and we are easy to reach by phone and email.

3. Our handmade soaps are made with natural ingredients, so they’re better for the skin.  They contain no chemicals, preservatives, artificial dyes or pigments.  Our soaps are eco-friendly, and something that everyone uses!

4. We have a wide variety of soaps to choose from.  We use essential oils, sulfate-free fragrances and even have fragrance free bars.  We have something for everyone, even the family dog.

5. Each bar of soap will be individually wrapped and labeled with the soap’s scent.  Each order from each seller will be packaged separately to allow for easy distribution to buyers.

6. Your organization can earn up to 50% profit with our four-level profit structure.  The more you sell, the more you earn.

Sell

  • 50-99 bars and earn 35% profit
  • 100 – 199 bars earns 40%
  • 200 – 499 bars earns 45%
  • 500+ bars earns 50%

And free shipping for all orders!

Our fundraising program is free to start. Contact us today for more information.

7. Top Seller Reward Program – Noir Naturals rewards the top 3 sellers in each fundraisingprogram with gift cards from Wal-Mart, Best Buy or Amazon. The 1st place seller will earn a$100 gift card, 2nd place a $50 gift card, and 3rd place a $25 gift card.

8. Promotional tools – Each seller will receive a seller packer which contains a color catalog, samples of each soap, and fundraising safety tip information.

9. Online ordering – We made it easy for friends and family members to support fundraiser sellers who may not be in the immediate reach of the school, club, organization or group conducting the fundraiser.  Each fundraising organization will have a separate page on our website where purchases can be made.  Online purchases count toward the total sales of each seller for the top seller rewards.  Check out Haley’s fundraiser to see how yours could look.

10. Giving Back – We give back to the community by supporting local non-profit organizations.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of our best seller Asta Doggie Soap will be donated to the Louisiana SPCA organization in New Orleans, LA.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of our Baby Noir Soap will be donated to the Be An Angel children’s organization in Houston, TX.

11. Referral Bonus – $100 Noir Naturals Gift Certificates are awarded to individuals who refer organizations or groups that use our fundraising program.
