Caress by Nature - Order OPEN

Hi Everyone, 
I am the BIGGEST fan of Lee, our Goat Milk Soap supplier! If you want products that are:

  • Natural, no junk, no shortcuts 
  • Ingredients that are hand picked, dried and infused
  • High quality and standards
  • Made with the knowledge of a (soon to qualify) Cosmetic Scientist
  • Healing, softening, nourishing and AFFORDABLE skin and hair care
Then you say HELLO to Caress by Nature!

Lee has been making soap and skin care for 10 years now, from her own research and testing. Just to formalize it, she's due to qualify as a cosmetic scientist (woop!).
I CAN NOW CONFIRM AFTER TESTING MYSELF that her face cream and soaps are 
THE BEST I have ever used! and worth a lot more than the price we pay. 
I recommend with full confidence everything in the range (and I'm excited to try more things this time - eye serum, shampoo/cond, volcanic ash mask... :) 

Orders are now open and a firm close for all orders and payment to be RECEIVED by Monday 10th November. 
Feel free to pass around to friends and relos. GREAT Christmas gifts!

Business Opportunity

If you would like to learn the "Strachan Technique" of soap making and skin/hair care, please contact me.
We would love you to supply us in the future, Lee's classes are:
Face Creams: $250 (group or 1:1 for all )
Soap class: $150
Shampoo/cond: $280

All recipes, techniques and suppliers given in this price.

New Supplier - Norwex, Make your Home a Safe Haven


I'm very excited to finally release Norwex as a Co-op Stop supplier.
Have you used Microfiber and water before and found it over priced, short lived and high maintainance??  Then  you're in for a treat!

Norwex will suit you if.. you're a dedicated green cleanera lazy/non-cleaner, a chemical freak or you care about bills, you have kids, you wear makeup, you have a car, a pet, a kitchen, scum, you have an allergy, you want to reduce plastics, you want a cleaner carpet... etc etc

Norwex microfiber is hospital grade, has a 60day satisfaction guarantee, 2 year warranty. Our Microfiber uses only water AND cleans better than chemicals,  with (honestly) less cost, time and effort... and before you ask, yes that's spiel. 100% customer proven, honest and upheld with nothing to hide!

Norwex tick all the ethical, quality and price boxes so, after waiting for far too long to recommend products I'm passionate about (and am also the supplier of!) I'm thrilled to share their solutions.

I know many of you already LOVE Norwex and their products so you'll be super happy to see more info in your inbox with our other Co-op Stop specials and offers.

New Co-op Soap Supplier

A note to all of our Co-op Stop and associated Co-ops. Caressed by Nature have passed the 'Suzi litmus test' and have the Co-op Stop stamp of approval for soap supply to all areas (should you wish to order).

Their soap is great, their quality ingredients and record keeping of recipes is great... and they are lovely people to boot. 

Co-op Stop North are currently ordering (close date 18th June). 
We have a special Co-op Stop soap recipe of: goat milk, olive oil, coconut oil, and the super soft caster seed oil. It has a wonderful lather, creamy feel and perfect ph.

Our recent FB post on the Co-op Stop Australia page:

THIS IS IT!! After years of searching for a high grade, ethical (no palm or palm kernel oils) delicious, hand made SOAP that is totally affordable....
This is it! I've been using their soap since November last year when I was getting more samples together to try out. This is the one I miss - even hubby too (and hey, that's saying something).

They are cheap enough to order direct, or wait for the email through Co-op Stop North for your bulk orders.

I won't recommend the other products as I haven't tried them or researched their ingredients etc... but Soap YES! Co-op Stop stamp of approval.
