Ladies, send this post to your man, or grab some of these awesome locally made bath and body products for your gal pals. Everyone loves a Galentine’s Day gift!
Wildly American Soap Co.
Started by Andrea Driffill when she couldn’t find products that worked well with her daughter’s rosacea, this line of bath and beauty products is free of phthalates, parabens and triclosan. Plus, the products smell amazing. I particularly adore the Whipped Body Butters, which are moisturizing without being greasy. The cocoa sounds perfect for Valentine’s Day, along with Biscotti Double Tap Cream Soap + Body Scrub. Find these goodies on the company website, through Relay Foods, and at stores around town.
How about a Richmond-inspired scent for your sweet? The Modern Atelier has options like Shockoe Bottom, Kuba Kuba, Libbie and Grove, Hippodrome, and High Tea at the Jefferson. There are also scents like Cranberry Spice, Cake Batter, Honeysuckle and Mimosa Breeze to choose from. You can even get a sample pack with small bottles of four fragrances.
These Glen-Allen-made soaps are adorable and there’s even a Valentine’s Day Soap Set featuring lip butter, a soap, a handmade wooden soap dish and a little heart on top. Bonus: the company also makes beer soap and muscle soak for the guy on your list.
Another company started by a mama, this time one who was looking to help her son’s eczema, Sweet Cheeks is a full line of all-natural bath and body products. Bath bombs, roll-on perfumes, homemade shea butters, lotion bars and even aftershave.
