After a scare, in 2007, involving a lump in my armpit area during a breast exam at the doc's office, (which ended up being a toxic build up of aluminum from conventional deodorants) I began making Shoogie products for family first and then others to live a healthier, chemical free lifestyle. All of the products are 100% Natural, almost totally Organic, Made in Ocala, and Good for You...and if you are a Vegan, just ask and I can make any of my products VEGAN!
I make every product in handmade batches and use sourced products that are for a good cause. The Shea butter I use in almost every recipe is from Ghana and Burkina Faso, Africa and gives jobs to over 4 million women. It provides economic sustenance and a sense of pride, giving them the respect of their family and the right to speak out in the community. Shea butter production also gives them the ability to spend time with their families as often times they gather with the women and children in the village to gather, smash, roast and grind the nuts into the butter we use, all while talking and singing.
Not only do Shoogie products work, but they are different from other natural products because they smell delicious when you put them on and reflect my love of baking and cooking. I also have the ability to customize any of my products to your own favorite scent blend, if you are interested in creating your own beauty and personal care products that smell unique. Because only fresh, all natural ingredients and no unnatural preservatives are used, the made on date on the bottom or side of the product tells you when I made it, and it should be consumed within 6 months of this date.
