Welcome to luv u me!
luvume is far more than a group of products, it is a way to approach life. Put into a simple text message, luvume means approaching everything we do, everything we buy, -how we interact with the world- from a place of I love you and I love me. What does that have to do with sugar scrub, salt scrub, or other things we put on our body? Well, quite a bit! When we use an organic product, not only is it better for us - no pesticides, no industrial surfactants (yeah, those are in MANY body products out there) just purely, powerful beautifying ingredients -we also are not exposing workers to those pesticides, and we are supporting organic farming, which provides growing things that have more of the trace minerals we need, while enabling a more sustainable earth. Cool. Brains, Beauty, and Caring, that is the best. I am not done yet. My products must be the best I can find for you and the earth -and I also integrate my passion for ART into everything we do, from our displays where we use reclaimed wood, cooper, and whatever else we can find to create an engaging, creative experience, to providing a hand-painted gift bag or box always made from %100 recycled material, we always work to bring a little original art into your life! I want what I do to be good for me, and you. Simple, but it works in every instance. luvume!
To answer the frequently asked question of "what is the deal with the picture on the -body products for all" logo"; This luvume logo is creative, and also very personal. Creating a product that represents my values is so important to me, that I made it as personal as possible, by featuring my very own child and my unconditional love for her as representing what we stand for. I am that confident and comfortable with our ingredients, and how we create our product. There is no impersonal organization behind our products, but rather a family who genuinely cares about what we put into the world. xoxo
Our Product Line
Because we are really,really picky, we take considerable time to formulate our products. Our focus on Organic, Fair-trade, and sustainability, leads us to really think through every element of the products we make, from the containers, to the efficacy of the ingredients, to how we make it a beautiful gift without a bunch of throw away packaging. Currently, this is our product list:
Organic Sugar Scrubs
Organic Dead Sea Salt Scrubs
MAN Organic Sugar & Salt Scrubs for Men (all of our products can be used by both men and women, but we know sometimes men like something just for them!)
Organic Bath Wash, Massage Lotion, Body Butter
Aromatic Oils (Essential & Blended)
We also provide Bespoke Perfumery services, email us for details
We are currently formulating new products, and hope to announce soon!
