Baby, it’s (really really) cold outside

Do you know why Canadian LOVE to talk about the weather? Because we get crazy-ass temperatures that can change dozens of degrees within days. Tonight, it’s going down to -39 Celsius here in Montreal (-38.2 Fahrenheit). For this reason, we’re holding off shipments for a few days. Not only because the walk to the post office is LONG (it takes me more than 35 minutes even when the weather is warm and I’m NOT a hundred months pregnant…I kid you not, the things I do for you guys. Hug!) but also because this increases the chances of products bursting in transit.

One day next week is going up to a balmy 0, when it will be safe to ship most products again, however we’ve found that the White Willow Perfecting Tonic is a little too volatile (being liquid) to be put in the mail, and so we are holding off on shipping this product until the weather stabilizes a little.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it’s better this way in the long run.

PS that frost effect on the picture above is from my actual office window! Pretty, right?

M: As the green beauty/wellness community has changed SO much over the past 5-8 years,I tune out so much of the fear-mongering noise over ingredient/lifestyle perfectionism. I initially fell in love with green beauty because the products were so special, beautiful and unique, not because they upheld some false dichotomized notion of "purity." I do believe we can do better than petrochemicals and endocrine disruptors in products but "clean beauty" doesn't exist in a vacuum and there are many other sociocultural issues at play.

Stark: Do you have memories of some of your earliest beauty splurges or products you couldn't live without in your teen years? Do you have any products or brands you still use from back then?
Sammie: Gosh, do I ever. I loved me some Lip Smackers (remember the Dr. Pepper one?), and I have vivid memories of my aunt selling
