Luxury as nature intended ...

The title of this post, 'luxury as nature intended,' has become the mantra for my new business. You may have even noticed the Capistrano Soap Company advertisement to the right of this text. That's our new family-owned venture, and I do hope you'll visit our website.

We are handcrafting a line of natural, artisan-made personal care products under the ACEQUIA Bath and Body Collection label. ACEQUIA, pronounced ah’say·key·ya, is Spanish for the aqueducts that brought life-giving water to early settlements in the New World. We selected it to remind us that water is a treasured gift today just as it was centuries ago.

Now, it's time to share our treasure with you. We're thrilled to introduce our luxury collection of liquid soaps and body washes!

Our Natural Castile Hand Soap (above) is made in the Old World tradition with pure Olive Oil. And, our Goat's Milk & Shea Butter Luxe Body Wash (below) is as pure and nourishing as it sounds.

We've left out all of the harmful chemical sudsing agents and detergents to offer a gentle cleanse that's designed to be hypo-allergenic and actually good for your skin. We really want to help drive the market growth of sustainable personal care products.

Each of the ACEQUIA soaps we produce are available in our four signature fragrances that we love the most: Clasico, Esencia, Fresco and Jardin.  I've found some photos (below) that may give you a better visual idea of the fragrances we've blended.

Clasico: This tranquil fragrance is a relaxing blend of fresh lavender, cool eucalyptus and delicious Mediterranean fig.

Esencia: Our luxury fragrance is a blend of floral notes of gardenia and tuberose, which is used in the most exquisite perfumes. We’ve also added the fresh scents of white pear and jasmine for a soft finish.

Fresco: An exotic fragrance with an air of sweet almond combined with top notes of bergamot and surrounded with nuances of freshly ground ginger.

Jardin: An invigorating, garden fresh medley of basil leaves, summer sage and peppermint sprigs accented by hints of citrus zest.

We plan to add an Enriched Body Lotion to our product line in early 2012 that will be an extra-rich, fragrance-infused lotion designed to nourish and restore moisture, absorb quickly and leave skin soft and delicately scented. We will also be launching our Exfoliating Botanical Scrub in two exquisite scents with enhanced skin formulations.

At this time, our products are exclusively available in elegant boutiques in Houston and San Antonio, Texas. But, we do offer online sales as well. If you want to do a little Christmas shopping and save some money, we're offering FREE SHIPPING in the continental US on orders over $50 now through December 31.

We'll soon be (officially) launching our line at the Dallas Market Center in January 2012, so our retail presence should be expanding after our debut at market.



In the meantime, be sure to stop by and 'like' us on Facebook so you can keep posted on new products and special events.
