This weekend I attended a women's retreat and distributed a bunch of natural skin and bath care samples. I've discovered that people are more intrigued with using natural skin care products than I first anticipated.
Most people use popular consumer products because that's whey are conditioned to do. They are used to the big name brands because the manufacturers of these large brands have deep pockets and can put out some serious advertising (true or not) about these products.
When you introduce something new such as natural skin care, the reaction is more welcoming than anticipated. The women at the retreat were absolutely thrilled by the products and couldn't believe how clean and delightful the scents were and still have no heavy preservatives and chemicals in them.
So, if you are trying to promote a natural line of products, don't be discouraged. You'll be surprised at the level of interest. Many people are "going green" and trying to live healthier lives, that includes personal skin care products. More people are educating themselves about the pros of natural skin care and the cons & dangers of chemically laced products. The more people take an interest in what they put on their bodies, the more you will see people moving away from the so called popular brands and moving towards "the natural".
