Enjoy reading from Pish Posh Styling about OhSudz. We got a fun award for our products, service and overall joy of making people happy! Thanks again...

Back then I was able to try different products and scents on a whim. I didn't have a married-two-kids budget. If I bought something and didn't like it, I threw it away or swapped with someone else. When Amalia came a long, times changed. She was allergic to the laundry soap we used and developed HORRIBLE eczema at 1 year old. She still has scarring on the tops of her hands. We've gotten it under control now but it changed the way I looked at our skin. I wonder if my acne flare ups could be due to me actually having sensitive skin as well. I decided to shop Etsy for skin treatments one day and found this shop. I don't bother to buy anything else. Sure, some of the items are more expensive than I have paid for other products in the big box stores. BUT! These products have no extra junk so you don't need to heap a huge amount in your hand to do the job!! Keep that in mind. Do not "glub glub" product onto your body. If you need to do that to get your body feeling clean (or your laundry-same thing!), the product isn't right for you. 

My Day 4 award for Etsy Excellence goes to a shop with soaps, lotions and other body yummies far more natural and FAR more handmade than Bath & Body!!

Recently featured on Channel 2 News in St Louis (whoop whoop!), Oh Sudz features Artisan Handcrafted Face, Body and Home Care.

I swear by their acne system- it is the only thing that keeps my skin clear AND DOES NOT over dry my face. (Found Here)  I also use and adore this lotion for it's light scent and intense moisture:

Gail's soaps are fabulous. I recommend the Goat's Milk as

Aloe Vera Moisturizer - Light Serum For Acne Fighting
Goodbye my old Clean & Clear favorite lotion of the past 10 years...
 HELLO! Natural, plant based Aloe Vera Gel with nothing extra to re-clog the pores.
Before using this product, I would have a never-ending cycle of dry skin needing moisture-->breakout needing to be dried ---> dry skin, repeat. Not with this little bottle. My skin is totally balanced and happy now :)
 Gail, finding your shop was an amazing discovery for me! I no longer have to dread washing my make up off to see what cropped up while I was wearing it, THANKS TO YOUR STORE!
The confidence I have putting these products on my family is not something I was used to enjoying in the past.  I know exactly what is in these bottles and it's working!! I really love you for that!

Here is your award  ;)

Channel 2 News and OhSudz

First time on TV for OhSudz. We were lucky enough to be asked to come and talk about our product line for the upcoming St. Louis Unique Boutique and Craft Show. I'm attaching the podcast so you can learn a little bit about my other passion, designing soaps and towels with a retro, vintage look from the 1950's.

Willow Tree Bark Extract, Natural Salicylic Acid

This is the original, natural form of nature's Salycilic Acid.  As stated by Wikipedia, "Salicylic acid (from Latin salix, willow tree, from the bark of which the substance used to be obtained) is a monohydroxybenzoic acid, a type of phenolic acid and a beta hydroxy acid. In addition to being a compound that is chemically similar to but not identical to the active component of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), it is probably best known for its use in anti-acne treatments."

OhSudz now uses therapuetic grade Willow Tree Bark Extract in their Acne Zapper formula. This is one of the best formulas you can use to zap and rid acne, overnight. Made in a base of pure grain alcohol, organic camphor, Tea Tree and Lavender Essential Oils, and now Willow Tree Extract. This is an all natural, hard working formula. Take a look at our products at our etsy store, and see customer reviews.

This works!

Unique Boutique

We all had such a great time at the John Burroughs Unique Boutique. The OhSudz booth was
extremely busy, discussing aromatherapy, soap, bath and body care items. For those of you who do craft fairs, this one was a beauty. Loads of people, in a great atmosphere and lots of food. What could be better.  We're done with craft fairs for the season, regrouping and getting ready for the New Year!
