Whether you’re a seasoned green thumb or just a seedling starting out, gardening is a labor of love. Tend to hard-working hands and exposed skin with these four products crafted in small batches with all-natural ingredients: Bug repellent, cooling mist for hot days, and pumice soap and a vegetable-fiber nail brush for dirty hands after a day of planting and pruning.
Responsible Business Practices
At Lovett Sundries, we are excited about making your everyday routine special again with our finely crafted apothecary stock. After asking what was in the soap we bought at the store, and not liking the answer, we started making our own extra gentle bars using old fashioned techniques and ingredients we could pronounce. Our friends and family loved our soaps, and begged us to make more. That’s what got us into the sundries business. Now we feature a line of handcrafted soaps, grooming, and cleaning products that are carefully measured, mixed and packaged by our own hands. We like doing things the old-fashioned way; it’s slower but more satisfying, and in the end, it makes our products better and more meaningful. We are a family company working out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our wares do more than work and feel great; they can be savored and enjoyed with pride in knowing that you are supporting real people making real things. From our family to yours; you’re going to love it!
