Project Description

Santa Cruz is a small town in Northern California right on the west coast. It has that beachy vibe and holistic hippy people. I have always wanted a business that was called Santa Cruz Special because Santa Cruz is special. It is very hard to explain unless you have been there. 

We opened Santa Cruz Special in July 2020, midway into COVID 19, not knowing how long the shutdown would go on.

Because Santa Cruz is Special, it was hard to come up with what we wanted to sell, we knew it needed to be organic, sustainable, and in demand. With COVID 19 - we all know that clean hands are a must. Clean hands save lives and real soap does the work. 

So we launched Santa Cruz Special with soap and expanded the line to include other items such as hand-poured candles, lotions, balms, rubs, and more! We also included organic handmade jams, pickled veggies, and recently hand-pressed olive oils with a small batch of aged balsamic.

Our products are created with organic ingredients combined with essential oils, a few natural fragrance/essential oil blends, and perform best in small batches. 

We are seeking funding to grow our B2C (business-to-consumer) sales locally and nationally and reach our goal of $50K for the year 2021. We would like to upgrade our current packaging and source more organic and high-end ingredients 

We also would like to expand our B2B (business-to-business) accounts by 50%. 

  • Thank you for taking the time to consider my company! 
  • We are ready to grow and just need a little nudge to get us there. 

The Campaign FAQs

 

 

  • Handmade soap lathers differently than commercially made soaps.
  • Handmade soaps, do not have a bunch of harsh chemicals to further pollute the environment

Soap Sampler

I will send you a set of sample size bars (1oz), Citrus Lavender, Oatmeal Spice, and Peppermint Leaf (6 Total)

  • The scent in this bar will last until the very end.
  • This bar is color perfection
  • Homemade soap lathers differently than commercially made soaps.
  • Homemade soaps, do not have a bunch of harsh chemicals to further pollute the environment

 

  • Without soap, our lives would be entirely different. Soap makes shower time so much more enjoyable.
  • Clean hands save lives, wash your hands to help reduce the spread of viruses and other bacteria.
  • These bars are approximately 4 oz - Since they are handmade weight can vary. We strive to be as accurate as possible.
  • These are hard bars and should last quite a while, do not leave in water. Try to place in a spot that will eventually dry out in the shower/bath area.

 

A WORD ABOUT ORGANIC SOAP

  • Bar soaps have to have sodium hydroxide for their production.
  • Sodium hydroxide is an allowed and necessary non-organic ingredient that can be used in making organic products.
  • But none of it exists in the final product. It accounts for about 10-15% of the ingredients by weight.
  • So Organic Soaps are technically never 100% organic, but they are as close as they can get :)

 

Ingredients:

saponified oils of sunflower*, coconut*, palm*, and safflower* (with retained glycerin); water; essential oils of orange, lavandin, and tangerine; annatto seed*, orange peel*; rosemary extract
