Happy New Year, friends!
As we set intentions and resolutions for the coming year, it's temping to seek a makeover for ourselves of one kind or another. These resolutions are often fueled by shame or the voices that tell you you're less-than.

Where are the 16oz aluminum bottles?
One of the unfortunate side effects of the global supply chain hang-up was a world-wide shortage of aluminum. You can read all the juicy details here. But for now, this means that we haven't been able to replenish our supply of aluminum bottles. Luckily, we purchased smaller (8oz and 4oz) aluminum bottles before the main crunch, but we have such low inventory of 16oz bottles that it would be unwise to list this size as available on our store.
What this means for our customers: we are very hesitant to offer shower products (such as shampoo and conditioner) in a pumpable glass bottle--this seems like a disaster waiting to happen. However, we are now offering shampoo in 16 oz glass refills... meaning it is up to our customers to find a suitable plastic or aluminum container with a pump to use in the shower. Conditioner simply won't pour from a refill, so we're limiting this glass option to shampoo. Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or secret stashes of aluminum bottles. :)
In closing...Thank you for your commitment to supporting local, environmentally responsible, women-owned businesses with us!
