Two Sisters Introduce Candle That’s Also a Body Lotion
Tampa Bay, FL –(WiredPRNews.com) — Robin and Stephanie Greene always listened to their mom, so when she suggested they develop and run their own company based on her formulations for personal care products, they knew she meant business. Today, the two African-American women are running Sacred Glo™ and have introduced their first product – a lotion candle that was inspired by their mom, Ederle, who has been concocting and producing homemade products since her girlhood days in Brooklyn.
The Sacred Glo™ Lotion Candle is made from the finest natural ingredients and oils – including Soybean Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E. The candles provide a multi-sensory calming experience, and have three uses:
• The aroma from the lit candle scents the air, while the candle’s heat creates a small pool of soy and a blend of essential and fragranced oils.
• The warm, smooth, and luxuriant oil is then poured onto the skin, where it becomes a therapeutic and massage lotion, refreshing the body while infusing the skin with light, silky, grease-free essential oil blends that caress, moisturize, and revitalize while soothing tension and stress.
• Once users have savored the full candle, the candleholder is 100% reusable as a drinking glass or a decorative and elegant bathroom accessory. “Our mother has been our inspiration and our biggest cheerleader,” says Robin, COO and Sales Director for the North East. “She raised us to go after what we want and to have faith that anything is possible. She has always said that the best way to get ahead in life is to find your passion and to be your own boss.”
With their mother’s encouragement, the two women have taken the lotion candle on the road with great success. Launched in July of 2008, Robin and Stephanie are taking advantage of trade shows, direct sales, networking events and one-on-one demos to help them win retail accounts and sell their wares on line. They also have plans to extend the product line with additional all natural personal care products designed to relax, invigorate and moisturize.
“Since we grew up with our mother using our kitchen as a research lab for lotions and creams that everyone in the neighborhood wanted to use, we knew that our products would sell,” said Stephanie, Marketing Manager and Sales Director for the South East region. “It’s been so exciting to explain the natural benefits of our lotion candles, and to watch the expression on people’s faces when they try the products, because they fall in love.”
