Hey there, Scum Fans!
It has been weeks since the last time I provided an update. At first, I couldn’t figure out what to post. What has changed since the last time I sat down to write? What would be interesting enough to blog? The leaves have changed. Where there were hints of yellow and orange before, we are now in the full swing of autumn. Here in Appalachia, the colors are vibrant and beautiful and make you want to hug a warm cup of apple cider. But that’s what everyone is saying. And aside from that….. ?
But then it occurred to me. I haven’t stopped for a single second since the last time I posted. In fact, there is so much going on, I’m not sure where to start!
Our presence on the internet has skyrocketed, thanks to you all! Our Facebook engagement is up 155% from last week, and our total post reach is up 66%! Those are the best numbers we’ve ever seen, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all of you. So kudos to you!!! (facebook link: )
On to the Next Big Thing
We have been working tirelessly on Gift Sets, which include our guest soaps individually packaged or in sets of 6. Stay tuned for those, we plan on releasing then right after Halloween! We could release them before Halloween, but we don’t want to take away from my personal favorite holiday. (Let’s get back to enjoying one holiday at a time, shall we!?) So, these awesome little gems will be available for the holidays, and beyond. They are not packaged for any specific occasion, and we plan on keeping them available all year round.
A Brand-Spankin’ New Product is Now in Production
Another new product in the works is our Castile Hand Soap. These are liquid hand soaps that, in our opinion, are well over-due! We have given fans a sneak-peak at these hand soaps on Instagram, and can be previewed below (don’t forget to follow us if you aren’t already doing so!):
These soaps have been in the works for over a year, and we are so excited to have finally found the perfect formulation. Our hopes were to release these beauts before the holidays, but that will probably not happen (to our dismay).
The Castile Hand Soaps will come in a reusable 16oz brown glass bottle, and a brass metal pump (pictured on Instagram). Refill bottles, without a pump, will be sold separately. The refills will also be 16oz, and can be bought in any of our six current fragrances. Don’t plan on refilling your original glass bottle? You can bring it back to us for a special discount coupon, which is yet to be determined. We would greatly appreciate any and all feedback on what you would hope to see in a liquid hand soap made by us. We value your feedback more than you could possibly imagine!
Thank you for your support of our small, handcrafted business. We love what we do – and plan on continuing to do what we do!
