"Having a growing family of NOP certified products moves Makes 3 from the cottage industry category into a scalable brand," Daniel Sperling, who co-founded Makes 3 with his wife Kristine Sperling, said. "Influential retailers, such as Whole Foods, require third party certification as a qualifier for a product to even be considered for placement on their shelves. With this added differentiator and variety of products, Makes 3 is well positioned for growth in high profile retail space in addition to our current sales and distribution channels online and in smaller, specialty retailers."
Makes 3 balm products are made with a combination of organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, organic aloe vera and a touch of organic beeswax along with a collection of organic essential oils to give each product its distinct aromas. These proprietary organic oil blends provide for the softest and smoothest skin with aromatherapy benefits.
Consistent with NOP guidelines, Makes 3's entire product line is free of petro-chemicals, GMOs, synthetic perfumes and fragrances and other harmful ingredients. All Makes 3 products are packaged in sustainable packaging. Daniel's commitment to the Makes 3 mission is clear: to provide consumers with natural, organic, and hand-crafted bodycare products they can trust.
Makes 3 organic soaps and balms and accessories are available direct to consumer online with free shipping in the United States at www.makes3.com.
