How this Bath & Body Company Began by Angie Cavaiuolo:
Handmade Natural Beauty began as a home-based business out of the La Crosse, Wisconsin area in 2001. Natural products are made in small batches with the highest quality of skin-nourishing ingredients by me - Angie (Cavaiuolo) Neyens.
I have always been one of those creative types. From an early age, I was always making something from crochet to needle-point to well, pretty much - you name it! And I usually had a tendency to go overboard. I had always wanted to try soap making, but knowing full-well I'd end up obsessed, I held off.
Then I was inspired by my cousin, Jenny, who gave the family some soaps she had made one year for Christmas. I decided I'd give it a try. It didn't take long before I was hooked. I started researching and experimenting; making a few varieties of glycerin soaps, really concentrating on the natural additives.
Next it was time to design a logo and create labels. Having a professional graphic arts background, I really enjoyed that!
I introduced my soaps to the public by splitting booths with my mother who is a sculptor at a few local craft shows in 2002. Soon, I expanded the line beyond soaps and have been gradually adding products. Expect to see the line grow more as I continue on with my obsession!
One of my favorite parts of my business is having contact with my customers whether it be a craft show, over the phone, by mail, or e-mail. Feel free to contact me with any feedback, suggestions, testimonials or special requests. I love hearing from you!
Thanks again for your interest in Handmade Natural Beauty and have a naturally beautiful day!! ~ Angie
