Q: The child on your packaging is so cute, she looks like my daughter!
Thanks! I am glad that you love her as much as I do. The child on the box lives in my imagination and my heart. I associate her with joy, freshness and enthusiasm, which is what I want our customers to feel when they use our products.
Q: Why is she wearing a flower crown?
I wish that I could give you a philosophical reason for the flower crown but honestly, I just like flower crowns. They make me happy. I think that if everyone would adorn their head with a flower crown the world would be a happier place. To me everyone should feel like they are special and wear a crown.
Q: Where did you come up with the name?
My husband has always been my biggest cheerleader and encouraged me to start the business. He calls me “Sunshine” and I call him “Sweetie”. Hence the name Sunshine Sweetie.
Q: Are your products handmade?
Yes, all of our products are made by loving, artisan hands for your enjoyment.
Q: What is the average shelf life of handmade soap?
Handmade cold process soap can be used for years but it has an average shelf life of a year before the fragrance starts to fade. To get the most shelf life out of your unused soap, please do not store your soap in hot or sunny locations.
Q. How do I get my soap to last longer during use?
For handmade soap to last longer during use, do not allow the soap to sit in water. Keep the soap in a dry area after use and place it in a well-draining soap dish. Why? Handmade soap lasts longer when it dries out between uses. This is because handmade soap doesn’t have chemical drying agents that commercial soap producers use to prolong the shelf life.
Q: Are your products tested on animals?
No, our products are never tested on animals. Luckily, we have friends and family who are more than willing to be our testers.
Q. Do you do custom orders?
Yes, we do custom orders. Please note that custom soap orders have an average cure time of 6 weeks. Because of this, your order must be placed two months before you need the actual order.
Q. Do you have a physical store?
We are strictly an Internet store so our customers are not able to physically visit us. You may, however, meet us at one of the many festival booths that we participate in during the year. We would love for you to stop by and say, “Hey Sweetie!” We love meeting our customers.
