January 2020, I stumbled across the lotion bar by Beeutiful Creations when I was in a workshop in Rwanda. While I didn’t love the packaging, I loved the product and the makers. I introduced the lotion bar to our community and sold out! You guys loved it! I knew we needed to work on the packaging.
We wanted to find a way for you to store your bar and actually be able to take it with you wherever you went. Beeutiful Creations suggested using a tin. By using the tin, we were also able to triple the size of the bar! I wanted the branding to look like them. Beeutiful Creations has a great logo with a bee. We wanted to keep it simple and reflect the natural feel of the lotion bar. I drew the design and my friend Michael made it happen! I decided to put it on a kraft label made out of recycled paper to give it a natural feel. But I wasn’t done yet. I contacted The White Peacock and designed a gift bag to go with it. They found bee fabric as well as a beautiful fabric with yellow flowers. I love that by purchasing this product you are empowering artisans in Rwanda and India.
I can’t wait to share the final product with you at the end of April. This is an amazing product and now it’s packaging reflects that! One of the things I love most about working with our groups is how we collaborate to create a beautiful product that you will love and not only purchase for yourself but also give as gifts. We are designing this to be a great thinking of you and teacher gift bundle. Stay tuned, I will let you know when it arrives!
